A point of interest for me has always been languages, and I was quite fortunate that my university offered a number of different ones, including Spanish, French, German, and Mandarin, but I don't think all will offer the same.

What languages does/did your school offer? And are there any others you wish it did?

At the time, my high school only offered French and German, but now they offer Spanish as well. My sixth form had A Levels in French, German and Spanish, and GCSE Latin. I'd have liked to study Italian at GCSE, but it wasn't available unfortunately

French and German only - both have EXTREMELY small class each (I believe German about 4, French about 7) despite it being a year of 300 people.. Oh, and a non accredited sign language course is available for Gen. Studies students.

For GCSE my school offered French, German and Spanish. I then went to a sixth form college which due to its size was able to offer more - French, German, Spanish, Italian, Russian and Japanese. I took French, German and Italian for my A levels - I wanted to do Russian instead of Italian but had a timetabling clash with German (still sad about that 5 years later!). When I was at school I really wanted to do Latin but it wasn't offered, so I took a module in it at uni to make up for it

My school do Spanish, German and French. Not really much of a variety, not too sure why? I wished it also did Italian and Swedish!

My school did French, Spanish and German at GCSE and A-level, but if you spoke another language, you could take a GCSE in it (I had a friend who did GCSE Polish and someone else was doing GCSE Arabic)

At A-level, class sizes were seriously small (only 2 of us doing French) and once the other person dropped it, I was moved to another school with more people taking it :yep: Thir school didn't offer German tho

I wanted to do A-level Spanish but wasn't allowed to

Should there be a new university admissions system that ditches predicted grades?

No, I think predicted grades should still be used to make offers (541)
