    Ok, so I was that dude who was asking GCSE Buisness or Computing and I dropped French for Computing. Now my MFL teacher approached me today explaining why it was bad to drop the language and how many schools "will reject me" because I don't have a GCSE in language. Does it really matter for my future? as she said that it has a big effect not sure if she's bluffing just to get me back into it

    It really doesn’t affect you unless you want to go into a language-based a level or university course.

    Some schools don't let you study sixth form there without a foreign language, but generally if you have enough GCSEs and with the grades required then it won't be a problem. In terms of uni, if you don't have a language qualification it doesn't really matter, because, as said above, it's only really needed if you're taking a language degree. You can always take up language learning later anyway. Hope this helps

    That is untrue, and she is saying that exclusively because she doesn't want you to switch course.
