History or German A level? Watch
I find History and German just as enjoyable as each other, and I’m equally as able in both, so I was thinking, which is better, in terms of what universities want? Which looks better? Would universities prefer a language or history a level?
Should I just do a history a level and carry on German on the side?
Thanks for your help in advance!
After the enjoyability of a subject, you should consider which subject do you have a higher chance of getting an A or A* in. If you find this tied up I would argue that it is always good to keep as many career opportunities open. Opinions and choices at 16 years of age are quite ephemeral; you seem a person interested in the sciences, but sometime later you may have the feeling you want to pursue a career that is underpinned through the study of History and related subjects.
If you are sure about what career you want to pursue (which is not related to History or Politics or Diplomacy) I would argue it would be much better to continue in a language.
I am a student studying Year 11, so I would recommend everything I have said should be taken with a little bit of salt.
