    We're continuing fron last year where we created an event for a company to promote a charity. It's so boring because we don't actually learn computer programming (which I would love to do) and we do things we already know how to.
    So you need to make flyers, posters, spreadsheets ect for it. Seems ok in terms of how projects go. :yep:

    You'd prefer Computing then. Though I know most schools don't offer it at GCSE.

    What are you wanting to do for your A-levels/for BTEC?

    The year 7s and onwards are starting computer science which is quite cool but we miss out on it

    I'm thinking about doing Chemistry, Biology, Maths and then either History or Physics. What about you?

    I did pick computing for my GCSEs but there were only 4 of us who picked it so they cancelled it.

    I'm doing my A2s at the moment. Doing Computing, Maths and Electronics. :yep:

    Electronics seems cool what is it about? And is the jump from GCSE maths to a level as big as everyone says it is?

    Components and different circuit system.

    Amplifying audio, Simple Digital System, Pulses, Logic, Micro Controllers, Storing signals and counting pulses. All in the AS. Course work is nice too. :yep:

    I did Add maths so had a intermediary which made doing C1 and C2 much easier. It is harder but not exactly a big step up if you listen and do the work required.

    Trust me, I took computing and it's not as good as everyone says it is. The coursework is really hard and annoying - coding itself is pretty fun, but writing a whole document about what you did (which takes about 80% of the time) is just crap and takes hours on top of hours.

    I couldn't have said it better. If we only had to code the system it'd be so much better.

    Me! I'm in love with geography and for me it comes easily. I've spoken to some older people who took geography A Level and they've said there's no better subject to prepare you for university and all of them really enjoyed it
