    I'm not sure whether to do Maths or French A level 😯
    I got an A in maths at Gcse and an A* in French however, I don't think I can string a sentence together because I'm not so good with Grammar as I just memorised my paragraphs that I wrote in class. Does this mean I won't be able to do French A-Level? Or wouldyou learn this in year 12?
    In terms of Maths, I found it quite challenging at GCSE and I did struggle with some topics. Also, I was doing the summer work for maths and I keep on making mistakes and forget how to go about answering some questions.
    It would be great if you could tell me about what these subjects are like at A- Level and which one you think would better.
    I enjoy both subjects and I would like to do Medicine or Dentistry at Uni.
    The A-Level exam board for French is AQA and Edexcel for Maths.
    Thank youu 😊

    MATHS! Much more useful for Medicine and Dentistry. Languages are very difficult and you have to prepare answers to unseen questions with limited time, and answer spontaneous questions in the speaking exam. And maths is fun
