I am choosing my A-Levels and I'm only doing three, as my year group have to do A-Levels for the full-length course (2 years) without AS, I can't decide whether to do German or Physics as my third A-Level. My other options are Maths and Computer Science. I am very good at both but enjoy German more and find it cool and important to know another language, but I am afraid that not choosing Physics will affect me later on in life when choosing a career or even a Uni course, as I am unsure of what I want to do in the future. Any help would be appreciated

I was basically in the exact same position as you last year! My college fortunately let us do 3 A levels and 1 AS, I chose to do Physics, Computer Science, German and Maths. I originally chose Maths AS but I decided that I needed Maths A level for my degree so I dropped Physics instead. Physics is definitely one of the hardest subjects and I think you need to enjoy physics a good amount if you want to get a good grade in it. I really enjoy German and it is probably one of my favourite subjects at the moment. If you want to do a heavily physics related course at Uni then you may want to do Physics A Level, if it's not required I definitely would say go for the subject you enjoy the most. I am planning on studying Computer Science at university so I just needed Maths. German will definitely be a good skill to have on your belt in the future as I believe employers quite like to see an applicant with skills in a foreign language. I assume you are studying for your GCSEs at the moment so good luck with them!
