I'm not sure which A levels to choose and I'm in year 11

I want to do a high paying job in the future. I kind of want to get into cybersecurity, but one of my friends who chose computer science for GCSEs said that it was hard, so I'm not sure if I should do it for A levels. I'm currently doing English language, English literature, Triple Science, Spanish, Geography and Art. I think I want to do maths for my A levels, but I'm not too sure about what else to choose. Also, any career advice would be greatly appreciated!!
I say just choose subjects that you enjoy and that you’re good at. What are your top 3 subjects at GCSE? That’s how I chose my A levels

Sorry for the late response. My top 3 are maths, biology and spanish, but i don't think my parents will let me choose Spanish.

Is there a reason they don’t want you to do Spanish? I don’t think it’s right for your parents to have control over that decision for you

I agree, but my parents are really strict and they don’t think that there are any good university degrees that would need Spanish a levels
