    Yasss. To the point I almost forgot about GCSEs. Almost. *sigh*

    Finally get to drop the subjects I don't like. :cool:
    :rolleyes:
    :rolleyes: isn't that all of us?

    By the way does any one know whether taking Maths and Further Maths counts as one subject or two?

    Is anyone else excited for sixth form/college? Or is it just me? can't wait to leave my school though! So close but yet so far...
    I'm quite excited I'll probably end up staying at my current school for sixth form. I'm excited to drop the subjects I hate!

    It counts as two because they're separate qualifications :yep:

    What if I'm doing AS computing now and I'm thinking of finishing the a level in yr 12 so is that the one I 'drop' in year 12?

    I'm thinking of taking computer science, maths/further maths, physics ... DT Graphics...:confused:

    It was quite good actually, I had my favourite lessons. Although I almost lost my planner - left it in Physics, went to pick it up, not there - turned out someone picked it up, they gave it to me at the end of the lesson *phew*

    Your school will generally let you do up to 4 AS levels in year 12, then drop one so you're doing 3 A2s in year 13. If you have the A2 finished by the end of year 12, then I guess it could count as the one you drop, but if you're going to do 4 AS Levels on top of that then it won't

    Those sound like good choices :yes:

    They're technically two, but some unis/courses will only consider one e.g. some Medicine courses. However if you're thinking of doing Maths then obviously they would count it as two.
