Eldest is just choosing her GCSE options. She doesn't want to do French - it's one of her worst subjects (she says), she doesn't really enjoy it and she reckons she'll have to do a lot of work to get a good grade - they load them with homework so the idea of having to do more work is a reasonable concern not her being lazy.
I've no problem with her not doing a language if she really doesn't want to - but she's asking whether the EBac is going to be important. The school is pushing them all to do it. She's quite academic so she is asking if universities are going to make an issue out of having it she'd want to do it - she's sensible like that ! Basically I don't know - I suspect they probably wont care if you have 3-4 good A levels but I'm guessing - what do you think ?
