    I'm in year 12 and want to study linguistics at (hopefully) Cambridge. I have the opportunity to do Spanish AS independently as my Spanish is already at a good level (teacher is impressed with my work) but I'm not sure I'll want to be taking it to A2 - I'm also studying Maths, Further Maths, Physics and the Welsh Baccalaureate. I've already done French AS, so I'm also doing French A2 this year. The entries for Spanish AS need to be in tomorrow.

    Would Cambridge mind if I did Spanish AS and then dropped it for A2, considering it is (to some extent) related to my chosen degree course? Plus Maths, FM and Physics are 3 very similar A2 subjects. Should I enter for Spanish? What would you advise for someone in my situation?

    contact the college you are interested in and check they consider maths and further maths as seperate, and what they expected subjects for lingustics are.
