    given up
    why give up so easily?
    Just because they dropped the requirement, it doesn't mean that people who are taking languages at GCSEs won't still have a "slight" advantage.
    Come on! Let's all not give up!

    Good to know, so keep fighting for it!
    And tbh, I think cambridge is just disappointed that not many people take languages and with that,, less people will not be pressurised to take languages, which means less peopel taking languages, so I am certain they will be really happy to see those who have! actually taken one or two! :d

    So did Abraham Lincoln, he was a chronic failure. Things turned out well for him in the end.

    "may" being the keyword. Working hard on its own is a wonderful thing you should embrace. When you die, you can at least tell yourself "i worked hard"
