    Unless you want to study Spanish at university. And yes keep in mind that some universities don't accept languages taken at A-Level if you are a native speaker of them. Which your name suggests you're not
    What do you want to study at university anyway?

    I did Spanish A-level last year, and there's no denying that a language will always impress in an application (as will any 'traditional' subject.)

    But, don't take it just because you believe it will impress. At the end of the day, a poor grade in Spanish will not look better than a higher grade in a different subject as meeting the requirements is a central part of the criteria.

    If you enjoy Spanish and think you're good at it, then go for it. It's an enjoyable A-level and a well respected one. But it is a lot of work and a big step up from GCSE, so bear that in mind

    If you want advice on a level choices, this article is very good https://www.russellgroup.ac.uk/media...ices-print.pdf

    Aside from fulfilling the basic a level requirements (which is often two science a level and C+ GCSE maths for psychology) they don't really care much about whether or not you've done spanish.
