    Hey Guys, So I Got B In 10th Grade For English and I Was Wondering If It's A Good Idea TO Take Second Lang Rather Than First?
    The Thing I'm Worried About is Will Excellent Universities Take Me If I Get A* In Second Language?

    English as a second Language is more to prove your grasp of using the English Language rather than your academic ability in English. With a B already in English, which proves both your academic ability and your grasp I wouldn't think there would be any point in taking this. You already have what you need.

    What did you get the B in then? First Language English is more academic than Second so yes, I would imagine First would be preferable. It may be that they don't accept Second at all.
