Hello,I have a difficult choice to make for my 4th A Level. I have no idea whether to choose German or Drama. My other choices are Biology, Chemistry and Maths. I enjoy Drama more but I think German will be more useful?Also, I do Drama outside of school and I've read some books on it but also I am already fluent (ish) in German because I was born in Germany. If I could do both of them, I wouldn't hesitate. I feel like I'm throwing away a free A or A* in German.What should I do?

Those are good choices!

Well there you go, that's your answer. Drama it is.

Also, I do Drama outside of school and I've read some books on it but also I am already fluent (ish) in German because I was born in Germany. If I could do both of them, I wouldn't hesitate. I feel like I'm throwing away a free A or A* in German.What should I do?
Both subjects are irrelevant compared to your other 3, so it's not going to be of any use to you - might as well take the one that'll prove the most interesting to you, not which one will get you a better grade, because the grade really isn't going to matter that much given that it's an extra AS-Level that is of little/no relevance to your (assumed science-y/medical-y course choice).

If I was in your situation I would look at it like this. Think how your choice will affect the other subjects. Drama probably means more reading while you are already proficient in German so revision time will be less. Perhaps you could pick German and then focus more on the other subjects, since as you said getting A or A* would be easy for you.

My advice is to not get complacent and not to take your other subjects lightly.

I'd do German. A language always looks good. And like you say, you will get a good grade in it. And like you say, you do drama outside of school.

German. It has a chance of being useful in later life, plus you're at a good standard already.

If you're close to fluent in German I wouldn't recommend taking it for A-Level. Do Drama instead.
