    Hey!
    I'm currently going through the process of choosing my A Levels for next year.
    I'm really not sure about what subjects to choose, because I was initially prepared to start the IB course next year, however, my parents only just recently told me that we would be relocating back to the UK at the end of this year (I currently live abroad and attend an international school). So I have to make my options for A Levels.

    My options are: English Literature, Psychology, Chemistry and French/History (not sure)

    Everyone keeps on telling me to take French as an A Level and that it would be a shame for me to just drop it because I live in a French speaking country atm and am almost fluent in the language. I've been predicted an A* (IGCSE) in french too. However I don't really think much of the language and compared to the people in my French class I'm a bit behind them (we're already doing work at IB level). I also take Social Studies as a class in french.

    I'm thinking about studying Public Relations after A Levels, so would you say that this is a good combo or should I substitute in the French instead of History?? I've never taken History as a subject (I take social studies) as our school does not offer it as an IGCSE.

    Please help!
    Thanks

    If you don't want to do French, don't take it. At the end of the day, it's you whose going to be doing the subject for two years and if you have no interest for it, your motivation for the subject will most likely slip away and you might not perform as well as you would have wanted.
