    Universities rarely say what they really want you to have for example so little universities produce a black list but it is well known that universities discriminate against different A-Levels and universities want you to have 5A*-C including English and Maths and while they won't do a public announcement they want it.

    If you wanted to go to UCL, you wouldn't want to have to take an extra GCSE in a language on top of your degree so it is quite a disadvantage and in a world becoming more and more globalised universities and employers are going to want languages more and more, especially when you consider how bad the UK is at foreign languages compared to the rest of Europe-how are you supposed to trade and negotiate with people if you don't know their language?

    I fully see where my language teacher is going when she said how I'd be at the top of the employment list with 2 languages-I know She was completely exaggerating but She does have a valid point.
    With your attitude I strongly doubt you'll be at the top of any employment list.

    For our course this topic wasn't required all we needed to do was to identify case studies from poor parts of the world and rich parts of the world for natural disasters and tourism, we didn't do anything more complex so it was very simple to call them LEDCs and MEDCs.
    That should be fine for geography gcse, but to call china an LEdc outside of gcse would be to betray yor ignorance.

    The 6th form/college thing is very confusing to me because I'm going to my school's sixth form, which meant that I was guaranteed a place as long as I got the grades necessary for the courses I wanted to study but my school's sixth form is part of a college, which has several campuses which include my school's sixth from.Am I going to sixth form/college?-its so confusing:confused:
    That is really confusing , Y U SO COMPLICATED

    For some reason; going through the A-level result threads and seeing all these new results-related threads has made me feel quite petty thinking about my GCSEs! However; in some ways it's now made the milestone of a week left ring loud and clear...:eek:

    hi guys:3 I was wondering what time do you get you results?
    Also are you going before your school opens? My school opens at 8:45 and I'm debating to go at 8:15-8:30 - what do you think about that?
    Also is it better to open your results at home or school?:/ DECISIONS

    I get mine at 10am :eek:! But I'm going to be standing outside the gates with friends at around half 9 / quarter to

    It depends if your school has a sixth form and you're going there, as you may have to confirm your choices.

    Mine does, but I'm not going there, but I'm going to open it at school in case I need to ask them for remarks etc

    If I waited till I got home, I'd probably have an anxiety attack just looking at the envelope!

    Good Luck

    My school opens at 6:00am - not worried about getting up early because I have no chance of sleeping the night before!

    I might get there 5 or 10 minutes before it opens but standing around for a long time will make the nerves worse.

    I'll porbably open my results at school but its best to do whats best for you
