    Well I was wondering, if I took A-Level Portuguese as an addon to my A-Levels I will be taking in September; which conclude of Maths, Physics, Chemistry and Biology. Would it be hard to cope ? As I already speak and write Portuguese at an intermediate level for my first language ?

    All the STEM subjects you're taking will be time consuming if you take them seriously (and even if you don't, but just want to get your homework done). I am not sure how your abilities measure compared to what you are expected to know by the end of Portuguease A-level, but just the addition of ANOTHER, 5th, subject might be a problem just for how much time it takes up. Of course, that's something you need to think of for yourself.

    Do you know what exam board you'd be doing? Could you look at their specifications and see where you stand? Perhaps that'd help you? Would your college/school allow you to take 5th subject to begin with? What are the requirements for taking Portuguease?
