    I want to become a lawyer and I want to know what I should take? I want to take:
    History
    French
    Philosophy
    Triple science

    But I would like help to know if French is necessary and if there’s anything I can do to increase my chances in becoming a lawyer? Like outside of school, so far I am currently doing mock trials in school.

    Having a language may look good, but GCSEs in languages certainly don't reflect the actual skill (or lack thereof) of the pupil. They're taught very by-the-book I find, and there certainly isn't enough emphasis on actually using the language. It would only help in the future if he did actually speak French (or some other language). Having a language GCSE certainly doesn't mean he does.
