    Hi all,
    I am currently in y11 and thinking of choosing my a levels. I plan on studying medicine so I have already decided on Biology, Chemistry and Maths.
    French has been one of my favourite subjects since y7 but recently I have fallen out of love with it due to finding the class not challenging enough and my current teacher a bit boring. I barely listen in French anymore but chat and giggle with my friends. Despite not paying any attention I am still do incredibly well with little effort. I know this is bad but there is no incentive to work super hard anymore and i would be bored to death without a giggle.
    I also love history as I find all the topics we do fascinating. I was planning on doing French as my fourth a level but have recently considered doing History as it may be more challenging.
    I would really like some advice because I am quite torn. I don't think that I could take 2 more years of dull easy French with people who aren't as dedicated as I once was so History seems like a nice option right now. Alternatively i could do Spanish as I prefer the teachers and the people who do Spanish challenge me more.
    Thanks in advance.

    I prefer History, but I am not you.

    What you need is the highest grade with least effort.
    From what you say you wont have an issue getting an A* in French so do that. History has very large volume, which drowns some people and thats the last thing you need. In contrast you have a subject you say takes no effort. Bit of a no brainer.
