    It sucks I hate it so much, it’s an awful subject like I’m so bad at science I’m failing it all
    Omggg I'm so sorry to hear that! EzyEducation might help - it's like Hegarty Maths (if your school has that) but instead of just Maths, it also offers science. It does cost money but we have it and think it's totally worth it! (I don't use it but my older sister who's doing triple science at the moment does) good luck

    At one point I was considering 3 languages😂 had you studied German before GCSE or not? I'm kind of musical but not enough to want to take it - Drama is more my thing. I really love Drama but I'm a bit scared about taking it because I think I would find RS easier and less stressful? Ughh idk ahha
    I was similar in that i considered 2 languages for gcse. I was gonna do both french and spanish as i loved them both but in the interview thing where you discussed your options with a teacher, i was advised against doing both if possible. I could have still done both if id wanted, but they recommended not doing all subjects that were too similar and doing a mixture.

    Just out of interest, I'd like to know what you are taking at GCSE and the types of careers/degrees you might be interested in. If you've already completed your GCSEs, if you could give the grades you got and what you are doing now that would be great too!!

    I'm choosing this year, and I'm going to pick -

    English Literature
    English Language
    Maths
    Biology
    Chemistry
    Physics
    Geography
    Spanish
    French
    Drama

    With RS and German as my reserves! I'm interested in Maths, Languages and Linguistics at university (and possibly even Law). I don't really have a particular career in mind, but hopefully something that allows me to use my languages, because I love them! (The FCO, maybe)

    What about you?

    Finished mine back in 2014 . I did

    Maths

    English Lang

    English Lit

    History

    Physics

    Chemistry

    Biology

    RE

    ICT (BTEC)

    I'm currently a electrical engineering student and aim to pursue electrical engineering in university.

    What grades were you getting in French and Spanish and what grades are you getting in all 3 MFLs now?
    In my end of year 10 mocks in Spanish I got oral 100%, writing 100%, listening 100%, reading 94% (but we had only done half the course, same in French) and I can't remember the individual components in French but overall I got 97% I think.
    I have most of my language mocks next week so I can't tell you about that except German listening - 86% and oral 93%, French listening 100% and reading 98%. Can't wait for German writing because I've done no revision and I can hardly make sentences lol

    I know they are a bit samey but they are my best subjects and I love them so much that I'm not going to change them! I know that I want to take them both to A-Level and possibly even degree, so yeah, I do want to keep them!! And my school encourages dual linguists as long as they are capable of doing well. Thanks, though

    Wow, thats amazingg!! You get similar scores to me in French and Spanish so that's reassuring, I'm not going to take German unless I can't get French or Spanish, but it's nice to see someone in the same position! Thanks so much for your help just one last question - are you going to study languages at A-Level/uni? x

    That's a lot of compulsory options! For me, only English Lit+Lang, Maths and Double
    Science were compulsory and then you get either 5 options (where one is triple science, one is a humanity and another a language) or 4 (where one is a language and one is a humanity).

    Hahahaha your scores must be pretty good then too bad I don't like maths, then we would be very similar lol
    Yeah honestly I would stick to your two languages, it's okay now but catching up on German was really difficult. German is a challenge but it's different to Spanish and French so if you're doing well in those then I would stick with that. You can ask me anything, don't worry
    At A-Level I'm studying English, French, Spanish and Latin (so yes ) unfortunately I couldn't take German as that would mean my subjects would be the same, but swap Latin for German, and teachers said 3 languages wasn't worth it. And at uni yeah I'd either like to study MML/anything languages related, or English (literature preferably)

    Year 11 here:

    - Maths (compulsory; sat it early)
    - Eng Lit (compulsory)
    - Eng Lang (compulsory)
    - Biology (compulsory)
    - Chemistry (compulsory)
    - Physics (compulsory)
    - RE (compulsory; sat it early)
    - French (optional)
    - Psychology (optional)
    - Computing (optional)

    - A level Maths (optional)
    - A level Further Maths (optional)

    I recommend people pick variety of subjects e.g. a language, a scientific subject and a humanity (I'm a hypocrite; I didn't do this). The subject I hate is French (wouldn't recommend it unless you like it; it gets boring).

    Hahaha I know, TSR is mostly full of people complaining about having to do compulsory languages and hating them but I mean everyone for their own (just means there's less competition for us hehe) It's no problem! If you want to ask anything else feel free
