I think geography is wwwwwwaaaaaaaaaaaayyyyyyyy too much work. there is soooo much to learn and its far more demanding than a lot of the other subjects...i do edexcel syllabus A...i propose they take stuff of the syllabus.
And its so hard at GCSE apparently there are no gaps between GCSE level and A-level, as there is in other subjects.
Happy...why are you starting so early? And how much are you doing every evening?
Also we havent finished the syllabuses so how can you start? We finish in March.
Happysunshine...cool birthday...you share it with my dad...lol
If you know what your doing GCSE's can be incredibly easy. It is like someone said jumping through hoops.
Just look at the GCSE specifications, they basically tell you the answers to the majority of the questions in the papers. To get the best grades at GCSE don't be fooled into thinking for yourself, you must give the examiner exactly what he/she wants. Use their language and terminology in your answers and you should do well.
What are you guys thinking of taking for a levels?
Although I think that GCSEs are overated I wouldn't call them useless. If nothing else, they're good preperation for A-levels. I guess they are neccesery because in the UK you specialise at an earlier age than other countries -its useful to know that someone doing all science A-levels has a good grade in GCSE english and so can actually string a sentence together...
not if ur going to to alevels and uni
i think it's really easy. although I am only in first year of GCSE's and havent started our coursework yet.I've been predicted an A* though.
I decided geog over history becuase I wanted to go on the residential field trip lol. I want to do hisotry now though, since it seem more relevant to my future career (journalism - analysing stuff, etc). I'll just have to do it at A-Level - my local college says you don't need a GCSE in it so yer...
