    I was just wondering which subjects are most popular (not enjoyment-wise, but just the amount of people taking them)
    On the poll, choose all the subjects that you take. Sorry if i missed any out/forgot some, the poll can only have 16 choices

    There might statistics up online for each exam board maybe? Don't know about A-level but for SQA there is so there might be too for A-levels.

    Where I am, it'd be Health and Social or Performing Arts. Although Physics is a good 50-strong.

    At my school, as far as I'm aware, AS English Literature, History and Maths all had two classes each, whereas every other subject had only one class.

    Maths and Chemistry are the most popular by quite a bit, then Physics and Biology, and everything else is a lot less popular.

    I've managed to forget to tick Further Maths and Economics on the poll. oops
