Totally agree with you there, its so completely pointless! Plus if you don't wanna go to Uni in Wales, its really a huge waste of time :L


Both good titles though (Y)

What exactly is the Individual Investigation? I'm doing the Welsh Bac. as well and they haven't mentioned this yet. Is this more pointless work the school have been hiding from me?:mad:

I've done a Powerpoint on a topic, and an essay comparing two sources. Hopefully one of them is it. :L

I used to think that, but now I'm beginning to see it's not a total waste of time. Surprisingly some universities, for example, Manchester and Exeter actually accept it instead of a third A-Level in their offers. It's like getting a free A-Level for writing reports, filling in booklets and lying about stuff.:rolleyes:

Oh trust me, you'll know when you've done the Investigation :L Basically you pick a topic, lets say binge drinking for exapmle, then compare stuuf on that topic for Wales and another country in the form of several subtopics. Its got to be a minimum of 2500 words in total, so I don't think you've done yours yet Oh and there's no upper limit too, so my word count came to around 6500 words

I can see what you're saying, its useful in some cases, but for me its a huge waste of time and effort :L

Mine was the comparison of Dental Caries ( tooth decay) in Children in Wales and England when I did it last year. Was initially meant to be Wales and USA but I could find a lot more information for England.

I included several graphs, charts, figures and colours and passed with flying colours!

Argh I remember this, I did something boring like comparing the recycling systems in Wales and Germany. Only passed it by one mark haha. Still, it got me into Soton so not complaining.

Oh god.:nooo:
Minimum 2500?!!

I'm already dreading it now. Maybe I'll do mine on the rates and cases of depression and suicide in Welsh Baccalaureate students.:dry:

I reckon I could actually do it. Some of our teacher hate the Bac. more than I do, so they'd sign anything off if it meant I missed fewer lessons because of 'Gwaith Bac.'.

I'd better start thinking of a proper topic anyway. Is it subject related?
I don't want to do anything Biology-related because it'd probably end up as some sort of horrible project on tapeworms or something disgusting.:erm:
It'll have to be one of my other subjects.

If it doesn't have to be connected to any of my subjects, I'm determined to think of something amusing and lighthearted. Preferably something where I can include adorable pictures of hedgehogs like THIS one.:awesome:

It can't be worse than 'Gweithio gydag eraill' and all those pages on communication and teamwork though, can it? It better not be.:mad:

I don't really want to do it in Welsh, so it'll either be English Lit. or French-related.

If it doesn't have to be connected to any of my subjects, I'm determined to think of something amusing and lighthearted. Preferably something where I can include adorable pictures of hedgehogs like THIS one. And maybe I'll compare modern Wales and Middle Earth, just to get the cultural element in.:awesome:

It can't be worse than 'Gweithio gydag eraill' and all those pages on communication and teamwork though, can it? It better not be.:mad:

No it doesn't have to be subject related, its just got to be vaguely relevant to the Welsh Bac topics, like mine was on sexuality, which barely links to anything in the course :P
Haha Middle Earth FTW!! I reckon you could get away with that, provided you find enough sources

And yes. The Investigation is the single worst element of the entire qualification. It will screw with your mind. Unless you're also studying English, in which case you'd get off on it.

i've just started mine now, mine is called Euthanasia and the law, looking at what issues people face in Countries like Wales compared to somewhere like Switzerland where Euthanasia (assisted suicide) is allowed.

i'm stuck on what to write for my analysis and conclusion, i've collected all my data, collated it all, produced graphs and charts, just the rest of it has stumped me, any help would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks

"Sut mae safonau addysg yng Nghymru a Lloegr yn cymharu?"

Or, alternatively, "how do the standards of education in Wales and England compare?"

The Bacc is the most useless excuse for a subject ever devised. I've learned the square root of nothing and only one of the unis I'm applying to actually accept it - and my grades in my proper subjects are good enough to get into that uni anyway. Honestly, I'd probably rather fail it than pass it.
