I don't know what subjects I want to do for A-level, except for Spanish. But I also don't really know what sort of degree I'd like to pursue (maybe languages though). Ideally I'd like to have done some sort of mix, perhaps English/History/Chemistry/Biology but I can't take those subjects in combination with one another. My possible options are: English/History/Politics/Spanish and Biology/Chemistry/Politics/Spanish. (certainly not maths, haha) The idea is that the sciences would provide some variation from the essays of the other subjects (and possibly be less work, but I have no way of knowing). I'm aware that, ultimately, only the language is essential for studying languages in university if I want to do that, but I'm wondering if doing sciences as opposed to the other stuff would hurt my chances in that field. It doesn't help that I got the best possible grades in every GCSE subject, making it a little hard to know which I'm best at. Another huge problem lies with me in that I am lazy and don't really have too much interest in any subjects. So yeah, I really don't know...

If you don't like science, don't do it, it is hard and subjects only feel harder when you don't enjoy them. If your reasoning is you'll be writing less essays, think again, biology has essays in it, and what chemistry lacks in essays it more than makes up for in maths! Also taking science subjects doesn't necessarily keep your options open as the only thing they are really good for is if you wanted to do a science at uni however if you wanted to do a science subject at uni you would need more than 2 science a levels. The main advice is always do whatever you will enjoy the most as 99 times out of 100 that is what you will do best in.
