    I am just looking for some advice on my A-Level choices as I know I want to do languages (Spanish and a beginners one) at university.
    At the moment I have chosen:
    Further Maths
    English Literature

    I like Literature at GCSE level, but I much prefer Biology and Chemistry. If I replaced English Literature and Further Maths with Biology and Chemistry, would I still be able to get into a language course? (Somewhere similar to Oxbridge) Or would it be better to take English Literature?

    I originally wanted to do what you did but with Classics rather than Spanish. Oh how I regret letting my family force me into doing subjects I didnt wana do. But if you enjoy studying it and feel comfortable with continuing it, then by all means you should take it. There's nothing worse than doing a subjects you hate (trust me, I HATE 2 out of my 4 subjects atm), you'll eventually burn out like how I have

    But I do think it's compulsory to do an A level in a language to do it at Uni
