    Of subjects that I'd have been interested in, Politics. However, I probably wouldn't have taken that anyway apart from as an extra subject as I'm happy with the ones I did.

    They don't offer R.S., Graphics, 3D Design aaaand... World Development. These are just subjects I know that other local colleges offer that we don't. Don't think they're too badly missed to be honest...

    My school doesn't offer language A levels. The only way to carry on languages is to do the IB.

    The main one they don't offer is politics, other than that they offer pretty much all academic subjects although only 3 languages

    I can't believe some colleges don't do languages, that must be pretty annoying

    The only one my college doesn't do is 'world development', but I didn't know that was an A-level till reading this haha.

    My college is really big though, so it offers loads.

    Geology, Film Studies, Media Studies, Greek, Law, Accounting.

    But I suppose you can still do these subjects at university without having done them at A-level so it's ok.

    Politics, Philosophy (they did RS and called it philosophy), History of Art, Geology, certain languages (I think they did french, Spanish and Italian/Portuguese), Ancient History, Classics of any sort...

    But they did have a decent selection so not too bothered :p:

    Economics, Further Maths (There's no demand for it or they might), Politics

    Those are the only 3 that particularly come to mind.
