An interesting practical course that overlaps with the electronic circuits part of GCSE physics and provides a good grounding for either A level electronics or BTEC systems and control.
An A Level in Electronics is not a must when applying for universities, however, it is desirable. Please don't pick Computer Science at A Level, Universities don't require it. So if you are planning on doing Computer Science, Physics, Electrical Engineering, another type of Engineering, or Electronics itself this is a nice alternative. The vast majority of schools do not offer the course for A Level or GCSE, don't sweat about this though, because it is more of a bonus than a requirement.
It would come under a Science, but if you have to choose between this and a language pick the language if you don't already have one as you need some sort of language for the Ebacc. Furthermore, the Ebacc is extremely helpful when applying to University, as well as, meaning you have a wider understanding of the world around us.
