    Hello,
    I'm still currently doing GCSEs and have just sat my mocks. I have decided to do Latin, maths, further maths, chemistry and French for AS level and I definitely want to continue with both maths and Latin to A2. I need now to choose between French and Chemistry for A2. I got A* in both in my mocks and I find both equally interesting. I want to study actuarial science at university and I was wondering which, out of A2 chemistry and French, would be more beneficial to that course. I'm absolutely lost at the moment so any help is appreciated. Cheers

    However you should delay this decision because you haven't studied any of your subjects to AS and you need to give them a real go at them before you decide which ones to take forward. Also you might find that you want to take four or five to A2.

    Ummm you're still doing your GCSE's.... Why don't you just wait until you at least start your AS's before you plan which you'll drop. You may find you hate one e.g. i know loads of people who hated language A levels as they're a lot harder than at GCSE and at A2 there's literature. That said lots of people find chem hard. Or come AS results day you may simply do badly/ less well in one subject and hence it's logical to drop it.
    I guess what I'm saying is you're jumping a bit ahead you do not 'need' to choose for over a year and a half really.

    Its just I got a sheet in the post a few days ago asking for my AS choices and to indicate on the sheet which subjects I want to carry on with. It has to be in by next week, I might just ask my subject teachers what they reckon the best thing to do is?

    That can't be final choices though. Put your most likely choice and you can always change it later.

    At my college they had a university/year 13 prep day in June year 12 where the teachers asked you whether you wanted to carry on with their subject, then final decisions were made at the end of August after results.

    If you're just doing GCSEs, then dint worry, you have tonnes of time to get all the info to make a good decision.
    I just think the best advice would be to just go with what you love because you'll always do better in something you enjoy
