    So at the moment I am doing Psychology, Biology and Business, and i think that i want to drop Business for a language (as I originally didn't really want to do business in the first place).
    Would a language be a better A level to have than business?? (for universities and so on)

    If you can do well at a language then definitely go for it. An A-level in any language is always rated higher than business studies. But if you will only get a low mark in a langue (C or D) then business studies would be better.

    It basically depends on your language capabilities, if you reckon you could get a B or above then I would go for the language.

    An A-Level Language is far more respected and desired by universities.Languages are an invaluable skill to have. Having a language can increase your salary from 8 to 20% and gives you a head start on other potential employees as by speaking another language you’re vital to any company who does international business (and there’s a lot of them). Plus, a language is also a pre-requisite for lots of uni courses so it’s something to consider if you’re thinking about uni in the future.
    But obviously that depends on your capabilities as someone has mentioned, if you are weak at languages then your a level grades and additionally your future would be at risk. Do something that you enjoy, a subject that you would work hard in and furthermore, a subject which you know you can guarantee the desired grade.
