    So I currently study Human Resources at Uni and I just wanted to ask peoples advice. Should I carry on studying my German module which I find quite difficult *I got a 2:1 this year in it* or do I switch to the safer option of something Health & Safety related which is going to be most likely the *easier* option towards me gaining a higher grade?

    I know a language on the CV would be good but in the end is the employer going to prefer me to have an overall higher grade and no language?


    In my opinion.. if its between a 2.1 and a first grade-wise, I'd go for the language.

    I stuck to a language module I struggled with and I'm glad I did. I ended up with a 2.ii (not pulled down significantly by the language module though), and although I would have liked a 2.i I won't let it get in my way and I have still improved my second language.

    I think you should think of what it going to be more beneficial. For example if you already speak 2 languages don't worry about a 3rd, concentrate on keeping your results high.
