I would have liked to do the IB. Can you believe some lucky people have local FE colleges that do the IB, if only mine did! :cry2:
My closes IB school is an hour away

I would have continued with 4 A Levels but due to my depression it was medically advised that I dropped English (books were a massive trigger).

My school makes it compulsory for you to do a GCSE language.
What are the other 3 A-Levels that you take?

I know there's History, I think you mentioned Politics earlier too- what's the last one if those two are correct?

Exams begin about 30th April and end 1st of July for A-level.
I thought the exam period ended on the 24th June this year, with it beginning on 8th May. Some oral exams etc. may be beforehand, but MFL ones begin in March for example.

If it was upto me i'd make you all take a language, a maths/science and then your three choices.

Art started 30th April I think, and so did EMPA's but depends if you count them.

And my schools got exams going on until the 30th of June.

yes, that's why I like IB, but I wonder if A-levels are too in-death to realistically take more then 4.
I did 5 and dropped to 4.

(Original post by mobbsy91)
Well, I know people at my school who took 5 ASs and then dropped one, and so now do 4 A2s, so that could work...
You could do 5 AS-levels, to include maths/science and an MFL, and then drop to 3 at A2. In fact, the Gove reforms would make that even easier with AS-levels becoming a 2-year course.

Do many GCSE candidates not do a language?
The majority I believe, certainly the vast majority in Wales.

At my high school we didn't have a choice in what GCSE subjects we took. So we did Dutch, English, French, German, Maths, Biology, Physics, Chemistry, History, Geography, Sociology (in the third year), Art, Music, Woodwork (and PE).

Then for A-levels we had to study at least six subjects. We did have a choice, but we had to take Dutch (this being in the Netherlands) and at least one other language, and we had to take one science. We also had an option to do Greek or Latin as an extra subject, and I regret not taking Latin. And we had a choice of Art, Music and Woodwork as a non-exam subject. So I did Dutch, French, English, Maths, Biology and Chemistry + Music (and PE). And we had IT, which I always forget about, as the teacher didn't have a clue and had a nervous breakdown partway through and wasn't replaced.

I do think it's a good idea to study at least one language and at least one science subject.

If I wasn't ill, I would have picked up a 5th AS back in September. Psychology.

I could never do a Science A Level. I don't have a scientific mind. It's why I did humanitarian subjects.

What about biology? That seemed to be the most popular option for the science subject at my school.
