I need help choosing my fourth A-Level watch

    I recently handed in my Sixth Form application choosing Physics, Chemistry, German and Ancient History with the aspiration of pursuing a career (and degree) in languages.

    However, my school informed me that Ancient History wasn't available next year so I have the opportunity to re-submit my application. I chose Physics and Chemistry because I'm good at them, they're useful for keeping my options open should I decide to opt against a career in languages and it will feel like a waste if I don't take them.

    So that just leaves one more subject. I was considering Maths but I don't enjoy it that much and I'd get bored easily. Any help is much appreciated!

    EDIT: Should I also do another language at GCSE (learning the course via self-study) along with my A-Levels?

    This is definitely an option, but I'm put off by the fact that I took it as a GCSE a year early, having got straight 8s in mocks, and "only" got a 6.

    There are many subjects available to me but I don't know which ones will complement my current choices.

    English? Politics/ Economics/ RS ? Or Psychology
    Art or music for a variation?
    History or geography?
    I wouldnt bother with an extra GCSE unless you have settled into A levels first and can handle it
