    I am really torn here: I don't know whether to go down a science-y or language (English,French) career path. I am equally talented in both and enjoy both! I have no idea what university course I want to do so I am trying to keep my a level choices open but it is hard to keep my options open between two very different paths! Can anyone help maybe someone who has been in the same situation?

    You should really evaluate which one you want to do more longer term and even think about which kind of job you would prefer.

    I chose to do an engineering degree with a language minor. Best of both worlds!

    Look at joint honours options can you combine both interests?

    There isn't really an 'English/French' career path, it leads on to any job you want to do within reason - i.e. you won't be doing any quant analytics or engineering anytime soon. Science is the same except you also have a research career open to you; with more 'Mathsy' sciences like Maths, Physics and Engineering you also have quantitative roles open to you.

    So, the questions are:
    1. What do you PREFER studying and which are you better at?
    2. Would a research career or quantitative career interest you?
    3. What jobs can you see yourself doing?

    See I live in the uk so there's not really the same major and minor thing that they have in the US. There are joint degrees but not many 😁

    Oh I see

    I know a few don't have minors per se, but programmes for languages. Imperial College has a good one
