Quitting German IGCSE

  • 0 votes

In a short and concise sentence of my situation is "I HATE GERMAN". I hate German with a passion. I dont hate any subject apart from German. Ive always had a strong distaste for languages even though I am fluent at English and Cantonese. 

My school makes it compulsory for you to do a MFL (Modern Foreign Language) and for some reason I picked German..... biggest mistake of my life. I dont mind French but its way to late to swtich, my GCSEs are in 2013. 

Im not looking for answers like "continue on with it, itll benefit you". I am determined to quit as I am predicted a U but my teacher sees potential even though I absolutely have no talent/potential in languages. 

There may be one positive of learning a MFL which is Uni's and jobs may pick the person with the language. 

What I want to know is that if I ace my other subjects, will good Unis still pick me? Im aiming to get into Imperial College for some sort of engineering. All my other subjects should go well with some revision. For those who want to know my IGCSEs im taking with what im aiming and A LEVELS I want to take, look below.

IGCSE English Lang/Lit: B

IGCSE Maths: A*

IGCSE Bio/Phy/Chem: A*'s

GCSE Product Design: A*


IGCSE Geography: B

IGCSE German: U

As you can see, I reckon I could get 6A*'s, 2 B's and a U

What i want to take for A LEVELS:

Maths, further maths, product design, computing and Physics

Do you guys think if i dropped German I would get a place in a good Uni?
