Hey, I am doing biology and chemistry and maths a level (classic i know) along with french. So far (year 12) workload is manageable and i am half french, meaning the workload is a lot lighter for me. However, i still need to keep up, like I can't read/write french, only speak it. I would like to study either medicine/biochemistry at a competitive uni, and was wondering if I should keep french? Or will it just be a hinderance- should i spend more time doing things more related tomy desired course or is having a very different a level a positive thing? People have told me unis won't care, others have said languages are invaluable. Please help!!

i was in the same position. my mum is from a french speaking country so i can speak it but not read or write it. when i asked my sixth form if i should do it as a 4th subject they said if u can already speak is then its not worth to take as a 4th subject, probs because as on CV's and things u can just put u can speak french, so i decided not to take it

that's true but i do enjoy it and doesn't it look more solid to say that you got an A* in a level french rather than just- you speak it? I feel like i might forget my french if i drop it completely
