    Ok so I’m planning on doing either Spanish, Chemistry and Physics, or Spanish, Chemistry and Biology. Which one would u guys recommend? Also what is a level spanish like? I’m currently getting grade 7 (A) in Spanish so just wondering if I’m good enough. Also if I decide to go to college instead of sixth form, then I won’t be able to do Spanish. So instead I’ll probably do something else, but I don’t know what... any help on that too? Thanks!!

    Spanish A Level is challenging because the format of the questions in the exams is very different to what you would see in a GCSE paper, but it is very enjoyable and there’s more cultural aspects integrated in it (we studied a Spanish film for one of the AS units and we are currently studying a Spanish play for an A2 unit). I don’t know what a 7 is (we don’t use this new system in NI yet) but if that’s around high B or an A then I’d definitely say you’d be able to do it! Any sort of idea of what you might do if you go to college instead?

    Depends what you want to do at uni. Have you considered taking Maths? It fits very well with the sciences and is required for quite a lot of STEM-related uni courses.

    Either law or cosmetic science
    Either bio or chem should be fine for those. Pick the one you prefer/are better at.

    Biology and chemistry work really well together since there are some overlaps in the courses. In my experience physics would be difficult without maths and so I would recommend doing both if you really want to take physics

    Okay thanks for your advice! Tbh bio and chem sounds more “together” if that makes sense....

    Science are safe A-levels to go with because you can generally get into any degree with them. They are also extremely respected and academic subjects.

    I wouldn't do physics if I were you unless you really enjoy it and have a great teacher. Choose biology for a safer option
