    I'm currently thinking of taking Mathematics, History, Psychology and Information Technology (IT) at 6th form, but have recently read a lot of negative feedback concerning the subject at both levels, A2 and AS. I am undecided as to what I want to do in the future but I possibly see myself working in an ICT-based career, or something which requires the use of ICT, and so am wondering whether it'd be worth taking this at A level.

    Thanks in advance!

    Also, I'm not getting any feedback on this thread I've just posted about an essay due in tomorrow, so if you could: http://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/showthread.php?t=1169586!

    Bump, I really need replies, and fast. The application's in tomorrow.

    EDIT: New information. The 'Brentwood Consortium' offers an AS/A2 course in Computing (woot!) but I might have to go to a different school during these lessons. What's the difference between Information Technology and Computing, and is it worth the disruption of going elsewhere just to study it as opposed to IT?
