    Hi, guys! For all of you GCSE students, I'm going to be updating my blog more regularly on how A-Levels are going, so if you're interested, please follow me on Tumblr! Shameless self promotion here, sorry about that! Please give me some suggestions of anything you'd like to see! I'm thinking about the change from Y11 to Y12 and how to apply to university, as well as revision tips etc.

    Thanks! I have a love-hate relationship with my subjects, really. Some people are happier than me with their choices and some people really regret them. It completely depends on the person!

    Why not both Psychology and Sociology?

    If you like them both equally then you should take both. Have you considered a science? It sounds like Biology would suit you.

    Well done on your predictions! N'aw cool! Where abouts are you from? Haha I am not going to apply to Oxbridge, I don't really care where I go, a degree in medicine is a degree in medicine at the end of the day
    Yeah that's what our career advisor says 😂 she was screaming at this boy in my class as he went on the medicine league tables 😂

    I want to do GapMedics too! For Dentistry though!

    My cousin's girlfriend did it a couple years ago - she really enjoyed it.
    Really? I have never known anyone personally who has done it as I just found it online one day so completly on my own on this one ☺️

    Oh guys btw what do you think I should do for my fifth AS? I have already decided on maths, biology and chemistry, and general studies is conpulsary right up to a2 ( ) and its between either RS or Geography. I will probably drop it so leaning more to geography as It comes more naturally so hopefully will do better but In RS you have the ethics side which links to medicine but nothing really in geography does? What do you think?

    You really don't need to do five. Oh, wait, sorry, I didn't see General Studies. Eew. I'd say Geography if you prefer it. Plus, it's more respected.

    Is anyone on here looking to do arts or humanities? Or are you all sciency people lol
    Meee! I'll be applying for English Lit. or Creative writing when I go to uni, though there is also a possibility that I take up Biology/Pshycology/Behavioural sciences if it can be done (yeah, this shows just how indecisive I am), chances of me taking a pass on English literature are almost none though.

    That's bloody awesome - congrats! :awesome: Meh, just do what you enjoy, as cheesy as it sounds.
    Thanks :awesome: I'm surprised schools don't say to do what you enjoy more often, they say do employable things but really there's need for everything. And then they scratch their heads when everyone is moaning and getting stressed... :facepalm:

    Huzzah! High five! (there needs to be a high five emoticon)

    It just so happens that my boyfriend's sister does psychology at Bangor and his mum's doing a degree in Childhood and Youth Studies with the OU (I think - not sure entirely). She's a teacher and is interested in child psychology, especially things to do with learning disabilities like autism which affects their family quite a lot. So lots of psychology over here lol. I don't know what I'm going to do but I'm taking it one step at a time and choosing stuff I enjoy :ahee:

      Haha, I too, am into lots of Psychology stuff and I like it but I've always been interested in English Lit./Creative Writing.The advisors in our school are always on about how ''you'll do great if you choose Medicine/Psycology/ Neuroscience!'', that's okay and all, I'm good at it but that doesn't mean can force me into not taking what I'm interested in >_>

      Indeed, I hope you choose whatever you love doing! They say it's quite a burden when you're doing something and not passionate about it

    Of you don't want to do general studies, you could talk to your head of year maybe about it later on

    But I guess it's free ucas points 😂 not that any universities for medicine like it

    She said it was really good, she went to India for two weeks but they stopped doing placements in India 😢

    Would you do volunteering while there too? Which location would you want to go to?

    Btw I think they change their locations every so often from the looks of it

    I like the look of Psychology and stuff too but it's not what I want to do. To be honest I like the look of most things lol

    Creative writing is pretty good too. You can make it whatever you want it to be And yeah, we're choosing options in January - everyone else is stressing about what unis will like but I'm just doing what I enjoy :cool:
