    I'm in my last year of GCSEs so I'm currently applying for colleges. At uni I want to do a maths with French degree and I know three A-levels I want to do but not sure about the fourth?

    So far I've got:
    Maths
    Further Maths
    French

    The college I really want to go to has an Italian Ab-Initio course which I want to do if I get accepted but the other colleges in my area don't run this course so I don't know what to put down as my fourth option when I apply there? What course do you think would complement my others?

    English would be nice, probably english language or english language and literature Would look nice with the French. Are you interested in computing? What about that?

    Not only what morgan8002 and geniequeen48 (above) said, but also take into account that many people, including myself, changed academic interests during AS year, since A-levels are very different from GCSE's. So for example you might find out that you don't enjoy maths as much as you thought you will. Unless you have done a lot of research on your own, of what the A-levels are like and what your university course entails and your happy with all of that, then I think you should be careful. Also I don't think French and Maths is offered at many of the top universities (in maths), so know that this course will limit your choice.

    Please understand that I'm saying all this so that you make sure you know what you're doing. There absolutely nothing wrong with doing Maths and French, it might be the best decision you make in your life; I just want you to be careful and remember that you might change your mind. Better safe than sorry.
