    Hi, I am currently studying my GCSEs and am in year 11. I take history, geography and French. Currently I would like to be an English teacher at secondary age, but am also considering screen writing for films. I need some help choosing my A level choices as I am not too sure which ones will be best suited for me if I decide I don't want to teach English or want to do another job etc. we have to choose 4 but include our fifth and sixth too. I have chosen English literature, history, French and sociology. But I am stuck because I am not too sure about literature considering at gcse level, I am a lot better and writing than reading etc. however, I am stuck with if I want to take language too and if I would drop French. What I'm trying to say is, if I drop French and take two english and I possibly decide I don't want to teach, are these a good range of choices? I'm not too sure if English language A level is what I'm looking for eg if it is revolved around writing etc or if I should stick with French. All my target grades for the listed subjects is an A but I don't feel as confident with French!
    it would be great if someone could read through this ramble and help me please! Thanks

    hi there. i just joined up and saw your post. i also have recently chosen my options for sixth form and not sure but i decided to go with what i have chosen. English at A-levels is really boring and i hope your really interested in english and enjoy it because there will be a lot of writing and such. English literature is very good in terms of poetry and all that stuff so you might enjoy it. Also go for french because if your gonna be a teacher you might earn slightly more or go abroad to teach and its basically an advantage in life and when trying to get into a uni. History is also good and also very boring at A levels. im not sure about sociology, i would go for government and politics. Hope this helped. ( sorry i havent detailed it much im actually revising)
