Hello, I did a french A level during year 10 and 11 alongside my GCSEs but it is one of my native languages(the other being bengali). I also did french and bengali GCSE but I was told that they would not be accounted for if I was to apply to anything that required my qualification(for 6th form and uni) and to be honest I do understand why. However I would like to know if it will be the same thing for my A level in french, will it be taken into account when I apply at uni?
I am asking this mainly because I wanted to take two A levels(Maths and Computer Science) and concentrate on them, and also I want to take a Computer science degree.

Will universities accept French as a third A level if it's one of your native languages? It depends on the university, but most places won't accept it, no. There's no harm in doing French (it will look good on your CV), but only as a fourth subject.

Many Unis will accept a 'home language' A level of GCSE - if in any doubt,just email the Uni and ask.
The isue for you is the '3 A levels in 2 years' which is what most top Unis insist on, ie. if you took French A level in year 10 you often cant count it as one of the '3 in 2' A levels. Again check with the Unis you are interested in applying to if that info isnt clear on relevant course pages.
