    Hi!

    I am in Year 9 and although I'm writing this at the end of October and our options period is in March. I am really stuck on my options.

    Should I take:

    French and German?
    French and Economics?
    German and Economics?

    My other options I am definitely going to take are: Geography and Music as: English Literature, English Language, Mathematics, Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Religious Studies are compulsory.

    The board for French/German is the AQA Certificate Level 2.
    The board for Economics is Units 11 and 12 of the AQA course (4130).

    Hope that helps!!!!

    Do two languages!!!
    You are likely to really regret it if you don't, plus also your school will probably allow you to do Economics A Level if you so wished, however you could not pick up a language again at A Level without having done it for GCSE.

    French and German, unis like to see languages and two is very good. Economics would be basically another gcse and also you don't need it to study it at a level.

    As above posters have said, languages are well valued subjects. However that's not without reason, they are incredibly hard. If you have a natural flair for languages and you enjoy them then you should take French and German. However if you find learning languages difficult 2 will be a lot of work so I would only advice you to take 1

    Two languages would be good,but only if you think that you could cope and not get vocab/grammar confused. Take whichever combination you would enjoy must and would do well in, because your choices really won't matter to anyone but you.

    I know some one in my class who does 3, Welsh full course, French and Spanish. I was thinking why? But I guess if you really really really really like languages then go for it.
