    I'm currently in year 9 and I have chosen my GCSE options already. This list will include what I have to do as well as what I picked.
    • English (Language and Literature)- AQA
    • Maths- Edexcel
    • Triple science- AQA
    • Core PE- AQA
    • History- OCR
    • Drama- Edexel
    • GCSE PE- OCR

    Back up options (We had to pick three!)
    1) IT (Computing)
    2) Psychology
    3) RS
    I can't remember what the exam boards for these are.

    I'm currently in year 9, but am taking History this year (because, yeah, I'm home educated)! I have already decided that all I'm doing is History plus the normal six, because I want to spend more time "developing an interest", which is apparently what they really look for (at least in home schoolers) at uni. I'm already in my first year for the sciences (those and the History are online courses), and I'm gonna take maths this January, because it should only take me one term to plough through it (at least, my brother managed it:/), and will take the two English courses in year 11 as "correspondence courses" - basically, I have to do all the work myself, and the teacher just marks my essays. Plus, I'm hoping to take FSMQ in the January of year 11. So the GCSEs are spread out.
    Hoping to take lots of A-levels, though - Chem, Phys, Bio, Maths and Further Maths. I want to do Natural Sciences at Uni, as my interest is bees, and I want to study them when I'm older. So lots of plans there!

    Hm, yes, that would also hint at it! :P Only reason I chose it is because I couldn't decide between singing(which I also enjoy) and bees, so I stuck at Treblebee!:P

    I have to do R.E too, but I actually really like it, though it is annoying only getting to pick three subjects. I'm taking Art, History and Geography, but I think I probably would have picked R.E anyway if I got to choose four options.

    Hi everyone! I'm 14 and currently in Year 9. I've been lurking around TSR for a while now, but I finally feel like I should post something, since this does apply to me, haha.

    I'm choosing History, French, Religious Studies and Triple Science for my options at GCSE, along with my school's compulsory subjects which are English Lang + Lit, Maths, Personal Development, PE(not looking forward to that one D: ) and Core Science. I'd like to do Further Maths, too, although I don't yet know whether my school offer this. I would really like to study Law one day, possibly at Cambridge, and I'm hoping my options will allow me to do so in the future. I'm unsure as to what PE course I'm going to be doing right now, as our school offers multiple courses, and they decide whether we do BTEC or GCSE, and even then, I'm not clear on the differences!

    If anyone has any advice or anything on what I'm doing at GCSE, I would love to hear it! c:

    Alongside school, I love horse riding, art, reading and running. ^^

    Basically, the University is required to register our attendance at University 4 or 5 times a term. It's like afternoon registration at school - it's just to check we're okay and still part of the University (as if we're absent for a term or something, the University is very good in checking up on us to make sure we're okay, need any help, have just fallen ill or something) :yep: . It was enforced last year due to visa problems for international students. It stops international students 'registering' with the University in order to get into the UK, then going and finding a job or work instead of attending, which is illegal :yep:

    Well, all Unis are required to do it I think :curious: . There was a situation a couple of years ago when the police rescinded the visa rights of a London University because it was found to be being abused. There was an outcry as it damaged legitimate students as well as the fraudulent ones and I think this came about because of it
