    Should I take a language as I'm academic and as a back up job would like to be a surgeon. I'm taking triple science but don't know whether to choose a language too. Preferably I don't want to but I am a very able student.

    Keep in mind that Universities/Sixth forms really like seeing an additional language in gcse! And that you'll be doing the new 9-1 spec, so it'll be harder. But as you said that you are an able student, you should be able to manage it!

    unis do like to see languages (as mentioned before) but in some unis (like ucl or lse) you can take language classes when u actaully get to uni (thats what i undertsood from thier websites but you may have to look yourself). check other unis pages as well for degrees u may be interested in and check their requirements. good luck!
