    I'm currently in year 11, and I'm about to choose my A-levels. I'm pretty certain on these, as I would like to concentrate on modern languages, so I'd be taking French, Spanish, and since I can only take two languages, I'd also take Computer Science which I really enjoy. Since we're going linear, my school is offering loads of other options along side the A-levels, one of which is GCSE Italian. I have a lifelong goal of becoming a polyglot, so I thought this would be perfect, but I have since realised that I could also do an EPQ, and try to learn as much of a language as I can in a given amount of time, and that would be my project. I'm aiming for Oxford university, and I was wondering which of these would be better for applying. Thanks for the help!

    Do an EPQ. An extra GCSE doesn't really mean much, whereas an EPQ will give you something to talk about in interview.

    EPQ can also lead to reduced offers from certain universities
    I'd go for EPQ, gives you a lot more freedom
