    Classics, I have a friend who really wants to study it at uni but has been rejected from her first two choices, I think because our sixth form doesn't do classics.

    Also photography, but I doubt anyone in my sixth form would seriously take it/take it seriously.

    Creative subjects other than Fine Art, Drama and Resistant Materials weren't offered. Politics wasn't in my year, but now is. No 'soft subjects' were offered, but it was a private school aiming to send almost everyone to a top 25 university.

    All non core "new school" subjects =[ eg it only offers the old school science, languages, maths, his, economics etc..

    not really that bothered as i wanted to do maths history politics economics anywey, but i would have quite liked the idea of doing something like photography as an extra.

    Government and Politics.
    Ancient History (Only Late Modern or Early Modern)
    Law
    History Of Art
    Archaeology

    My sixth form also stays away from all the "mickey mouse" subjects, other than Drama and Film Studies...which to be honest I'm quite glad about.

    Spanish, which I really wanted to do. I wish I'd gone somewhere else so I could've taken it. It would have made applying to university so much easier :/
