    general studies is horrid for us cos we dont get taught or anything, no guidance, just sit in the exam and be expected to know it...same for a lot of other peeps I know but some people get taught it...wonder if they get better grades? I dunno cos last year I got a C and I know people who were taught it and failed :P...basically just know a lot about current affairs and stuff and you're sorted

    IMO the general studies papers are very similar to GCSE religious studies papers, i.e. with all the morality and ethics stuff, I guess its an advantage knowing that, but I've found all the papers so far to be general knowledge (we don't have proper lessons for GS either)

    I did 1 and 2 - i don't know anyone who didn't do 1! It was much better than I was expecting and I think I've done well overall but as it won't get me into uni, I wish I could trade a good grade in general studies with my chemistry grade to make sure I get in!

    We did the whol a level this year, with just 2 lessons a week. I did 1 and 2. I wrote loads of waffley crap about the Welsh Baccalaureate for the second question! But my sole aim was to get onto extra sheets of paper! Which I did! I was very pleased! And studying Biology with a food science option meant I was laughing at question one!

    lucky! I started writing about "Jamie's School Dinners"...not sure its what theyre looking for but I dont care really :P. I dont think Ive ever got onto extra sheets of paper in any of my exams ...never have that much to say really. That one wasnt as good as my first General exam though, I started talking about Oasis in that one...myguy mates were well proud of me
