What about biology? That seemed to be the most popular option for the science subject at my school.
I can confirm that as a Biology A-Level student who is naturally better at humanities, sciences should be avoided at all cost if you're not good at them! It's going to be the thing that stops me from getting into my first choice uni

Aw, I am sorry to hear that. I think I am lucky. I didn't have a clue what I wanted to study at university when I had to pick my subjects, so I went with languages and maths, biology and chemistry - I figured I had a wide range of options that way. But whilst physics baffled me, and I just about scraped a C at GCSE level, I was pretty good at the other sciences. And now I am studying the humanities at university.

Is it just a bad feeling you have? You may well have done better than you think!

Well, most of what I studied at A-level is pretty useless to me now. I would have made some different choices in hindsight.

Well I yet have two more papers to go, and if they're anything like the last I may as well start planning my mandatory gap year now.

Ahh, well even so, it got you where you are, and no knowledge is truly useless

Don't give up yet! Some papers will be more difficult than others.

And true. Knowledge seems to slip away, though. I wouldn't be able to hold a conversation in French or German now.

I won't, I won't; just the anticipation of it is unbearable!

That is quite true, although I'm sure you'd be surprised how quickly it would come back to you if ti was demanded

Ensure that you have a proper contract and that they're not ****. Startups are the worst to work with IMO.
I just had the best day of my life today, we're going to the pub for a comedy night tomorrow. I have the best boss in the world.

Another great. For all the love in the world I have for Billy though, there can be no greater protest songwriter, or songwriter in general than Dylan.

I said had... So I meant wanted, didn't I? Did you take Key Stage English or not?

I Feel they're on par with each other, but I still prefer a bit of Bragg.

My sixth form offered the IB, but not with the right subjects annoyingly. Real shame, everyone I know who took it found it really challenging but so rewarding.

Key stage what? 1, 2, 3, 4, 5?
And surely there were closer schools... It was just 2 hours to the best one.
