    linguistics is rad! i really enjoyed it at gcse. i know people who really like the subject and english language a level (which i assume you're taking?). one of my friends did further maths and is really struggling as she doesn't enjoy it (she much prefers art now to any of the maths/physics); i think it's a subject for those who really love maths and love noodling around within the subject - if you don't it may just become a chore. further maths may be useful within computational linguistics though i wouldn't be surprised if maths would be sufficient (idk). they are both well respected A levels so it's probably just a matter of what you are going to have more of a laugh studying a lot.
    Nope, my school doesn't offer English language :/ I'm doing maths, French, Latin, an EPQ equivalent and either English lit or further maths. "Noodling around" 😂 love that phrase! I adore maths ❤ I almost love it too much for someone who isn't planning on a maths degree. I'm most likely going to drop English because I already have my literature fix through French and Latin, but not without feeling a bit sad about it

    oh that sucks, i've seen that in a few places and it's odd? i find it bizarre english lang isn't a facilitating a level. if you love maths you'll probably really enjoy further maths because it is the most mass-like noodling maths wise, tricky too. latin and french sound good; my friend is doing french and she's been set a novel to read over the summer, so you'll get your lit fix there. good luck and hope everything snaps together!
