    Well I thought about getting this out the way now (even though I still have time.)
    I really need help with this. I don't want to do something I regret.

    (By the way, I've taken biology, chemistry and German for A-levels).

    I want to do political sciences (or something of the sort), languages (definitely German, want to start Russian, and Arabic) but then I don't want to drop all sorts of sciences (chemistry is interesting), but it's not relevant to what I want to be. So I've given priority to political sciences & languages.

    I want to be a foreign correspondent (i.e. journalist/reporter abroad).


    I'm thinking about doing a joint course, but I don't want to feel as if I'm doing a "botched job" of learning something as a result.


    I would like it if someone added their two cents on this to gain more perspective, thanks.

    So you're gonna need languages and political sciences, you ain't gonna need science. I don't understand how this is difficult for you. Just find a political sciences and languages joint course. Disregard science, disregard the botched job statement, you want them two subjects, you take those two subjects. Jesus christ

    I see your point, well just know generally you can study anything in order to become a journalist, but be ensured that it would help you. You say you like science - are you sure you want to become a journalist in the politicial area? You could also do something like medical journalism. Otherwise, you should just think about what you want to do in the upcoming four years and choose this subject.
