As you can already see I did 7 IGCSE's and got out of it with five A stars (in biology. chemistry, physics, russian and english) and two As. (in maths and computer and only because I was really sick during the exams)
At that time I just couldnt see myself in anywhere but science so the fact that my subject choices were so narrow didnt bother me one bit. Quite foolish, I know
Later on, when I started researching universities I saw that even for a degree in the sciences one would require something from the humanities at either IGCSE or A level to get in.
I am currently doing four AS levels in biology, chemistry, physics and maths (and doing pretty well I should say) and plan to continue all four to A2.
I was thinking that I should do another subject during the summer since I would need something to entertain myself with anyways and this would make a very useful pastime that would widen my uni options.
I was thinking IGCSE Environmental management or geography since those two are the only ones on the least that appeal to me. Then I taught that doing an extra AS would be a better idea since I ll be able to continue to A2 alongside my four subjects if I feel like it and it has more value. (or does it?)
Now, AS level environmental management has coursework so it isnt an option. Marine science is well... a science.
So lets get to the point. Is it possible to self study AS level geography in a little over four months without previously studying IGCSE geography? I looked at some past papers and most questions looked like general knowledge to me but I really dont know...
And in case I end up doing an ig, geography is worth more than environmental management, right?
Any advice or suggestion would be GREATLY appreciated!!
From GCSE to A level, it's all changing
