    aha i just go to a regular state school but I got A/A* in my GCSEs when I took them in year 10 so they thought rather than repeat it everyone who got good grades should do AS... it's really useful prepared me for college now...

    and can you believe I've interrupted my sleepnig pattern of wkaing up at 2pm, woke up at 7am, gotten ready, was just about to leave when I realise the maths exam is TOMORROW (arrrrrrgh)... oh well, a few more revision hours... merci :top:

    well I considered that but no... I'm only going to get around a C in French which I'm gonna repeat from AS, and an A in English Lit (which I don't want to do to A2)... so next year I'm gonna do AS in General Studies, French (again now that I know what its all about), History, Psychology, Media, Computing

    most of mine comes from the ICT GNVQ which is worth like 4... and you have to work really hard in that its awful, and did some last year so I had more time this year and stuff...

    How come everyone is doing more than 10! I though only a handful of schools actually let their students do more than 10 - at my school everyone does 9 (no choice!) except set 1 for maths does statistics, which makes 10 for around 1/4 of the year (inc. me ) You must all have a tonne of revision to do!

    How come everyone is doing more than 10
    These days the number of gcses you get often doesn't reflect the number of subjects.

    You can do one gnvq subject and get 4 'gcses'.

    In some schools RS is only worth 0.5.

    Some people do 'ICT' and get 2 gcses for it.

    Its a bit silly really. I'd just rather get a grade per subject, rather than saying 'oh I got 2 A*s' when they're both in the same subject (i.e. IT double). Bit simpler that way.

    Does anybody know how these numbers are reflected? Is it in UCAS points?
