So our choices deadline is in about a week, and I just want to get some opinions on the choices I'm thinking of taking.
Maths
English
English Lit
Triple Science (so all compulsory ones ahaha)
Geography
History
Art
German
Latin

I'm a fairly compentent student and all my teachers seem happy with my choices. I also do around 16 hours of rowing training a week (still don't look like a rower, but oh well). Is this actually possible? Everyone I have talked to seem to think it is but they are my teachers so will probably be postively biased.

Since you're taking German and Latin, you must be pretty good with languages. Although for the new reform, you will have to know the langauage fairly well with all of the tenses and specific rules for verbs. Latin will look really good considering the fact it is a not commonly known language and will set you apart from everyone else. Geography and History are good choices (I did both of these) as they are humanities subjects. Art is also a good selection as you're showing creativity and not just academics.
ICT will look really good aswell because future jobs will require a lot of computer skills. Even if you waned to work in a non-computing job, you would still need skills to show that you are capable of using PowerPoint and Excel.

Your options are a great choice and I wish you the best of luck in your studies
