Well kids, gotta pick choices soon Razz
So I'm just wondering if any of you have taken these and what they're like.

History
Politics
Law
Maths
Sport of some kind

Most should be piss easy to get, only needs a B in English or History, so it's more of which is best.

Lol am I controversial? Lol Brodie it will be this crew in Politics: FoxC, me, Brodie, GBarnes, TSimp and a few others lol. Only problem is we'll probably piss about and fail like my brother Razz

EDIT: Brodie just saw you were considering to take Maths, are you having a laugh? Maths is really tough and requires someone to be naturally good at Maths or very dedicated and no offence you're crap at Maths and about as dedicated as a dead squirrel (dunno why I said that).

Oh and you sure you're actually gonna get in 6th form?

EDIT EDIT: Yeah I'll have real good crewage in Law and Politics but in Chemistry and Biology I'll be with Bandit and that's it Razz Sad

Maths is closer to the Latin root. 'Math' is just a hideous and lazy abbreviation, the very mention of which ought to embarass our finely-tuned British ears.

Also, why are you doing Law?

@Widds, i'm sure you can do more than 4...

ok, being someone that went through highschool in scotland i have no idea what an A level is..but i'm assuming it's on the same level as the scottish higher. which makes me wonder why you lot are only doing 4. i had to do 5 highers or work for mcdonalds for the rest of my life. which again was odd because the scottish uni's wouldn't take me with only 5 highers, i had to go to england (where i was put on an advanced course because i had so many highers).

All abreviations are lazy, but if you're going to do them you might aswell at least do them sensibly.

Why not? It runs smoothly with politics and it's an intersting topic. inb4 I don't bother with laws, etc... 3/4 courses is the average number. 5 would flood you with work and stop any social life you may have, if you want a decent grade.

I'm not saying Law's a bad subject, that would be rather hypocritical.... I'm just asking why you're doing it. I don't think it has a great deal of relevance if you're looking to take it further, and you'd be better of freeing up another option.

And Brodie, having a social life is perfectly compatible with 5 A levels at decent grades. I'd even suggest pushing for a 6th (AS at least).

5 is fine. I did 5 at a2 as well. Universities really like it when you do more than the average 3 a levels.

Well at our 6th form Twaters they recommend only doing 4 ASs then dropping one and taking three to A2. They say that you need to be able to get 8 As at GCSE to even consider 5 AS levels and they warn it is a lot of work, I'm capable of 8 As at GCSE without really trying (I've got 4 as it is) so that's no problem. Thing is I'm doing two ASs this year so I'll have a few extra as it is anyway.

If I was to take 5 here's what I'd do:

Biology
Chemistry
Law
Politics
History.

But I personally think that would be too much hard work. What with Chemistry being the hardest A level you can take (apparently although I've heard Maths and Physics are hard) and Law and Politics which means tons of essays I'd be hard worked as it is but add in History which is essay after essay and I'd be struggling. I'd rather have 4 good AS and three good A2s than some average ASs and A2s because I took one too many subjects.

In regards to Law, it fits in well with politics. The way my choices work out leaves quite a lot of options at uni: Biological sciences, law or politics degrees are all options.

EDIT: Brodie, you say you're 'decent' at maths, that's not good enough. Seriously, you only have to get a B to take it but Mr. Burchett said to me don't even consider taking it unless you get a high A or an A*, and you're not going to get either of those grades lol and you'd fail miserably, call it harsh but I'm just trying to help Smile

I'm amazing, although I'll probably be catching up in every lesson. We'll just be pissing around and do F*** all. Just like High School Smile Good times, shame that I'll probably get s*** grades though.

maths and physics are escentially the same thing, i did them both. doing them together makes them both so much easier.
the hardest one is english, as the whole subject is about interpretation of the written word. as long as that interpretation agrees with the opinion of the exam board. there is no right or wrong answer, it is all personal opinion (which you need to explain in the essays). however if you do not agree with the official opinion then you fail.
