    Christy! How do you find the time to handle 7 ASs?
    I'm doing two of them at the moment (alongside those notoriously pesky GCSE examinations) French and Fine Art and will continue with the Maths/Sciences and English Lit next year. Can't wait

    (I can officially say Fine Art is THE single most time-consuming - notice I'm not saying difficult, because people will probably just... shoot me - A-level if you want a good grade.)

    Ah, you are far more the optimist than I! I agree about Fine Art... lovely, but takes up all the time in the world.

    :yes: Precisely that.

    Have you done the AS-exam yet. (Ah, shame; if you'd carried on with French I could have ranted on about the impending exam of doom I'm so nervous about!) If so, how'd you find it? Are you on AQA?

    Chemistry, Biology, Physics, English Literature and Critical Thinking.

    I chose Chemistry and Biology because I initially wanted to go into a Pharmacy degree. Figured I'd take Physics to complete the set, and since I'd been quite good at it for GCSE. I took English Lit because I enjoyed the subject. Critical Thinking... well, I got told during the confirmation day that I needed to choose another subject, and panicked.

    Not doing Alevels yet, but I chose:
    Maths - a very fascinating subject.
    Further Maths - a great expansion on Maths, goes well with what I want to do when I get older (that might change, though!).
    Physics - I LOVE Physics, I want to pursue it at University, I find it absolutley fascinating, how could I not take physics?!
    Chemistry - I'm good at it, find it really easy, I also like the challeng of it at A-level.
    Psychology - Nice break from all the sciency subjects, I'm very interested in the way how humans behave.

    I might change Psychology to French, though.

    Maths: I've always done best in it and I really like it.
    History: Was one of my favourite subjects, but not liking it so much this year :/
    Chemistry: I wasn't really sure what i wanted to do and thought a science would keep my options open and that chem was the science that kept most options open. I quite like it though actually.
    Philosophy and Ethics: Thought it sounded interesting and it is

    Economics because it's a subject I always wanted to study, and it was the only I hadn't studied at GCSE before, and looked generally interesting.

    Maths because I've always enjoyed and been good at maths, and it gets me thinking more.

    English language because I wanted an essay based subject too, before realising how essay based economics can be, and I also did well/enjoyed it at GCSE.

    Maths & AS Further Maths because I find it natuarlly easy and sometimes rewarding (in a nerdy way)
    Physics because it is applied maths and therefore easy too. Also most interesting and fundamental area of science.
    Chemistry because I thought I should do another science because they are easy and I liked this more than biology.
    History general interest even though sometimes I wish I picked biology just cos I hate writing essays and tests where over 75% of the marks are not numbers.

    I don't do A levels but I want to join in! XD

    English because it is compulsory at my school, but still enjoy it, especially because there is no Shakespeare!
    Maths because it is also practically compulsory. It was one of my best subject and enjoy it to some extent
    French because it is easy
    Geography because it is amazing, also one of the subjects that I'm best at
    History because I enjoy learning about the past and I'm alright at essay writing

    I enjoy all my subjects except French really, as it is so easy it is boring

    Hmm, I think I'm on OCR, but I'm not sure. I haven't done my exam yet, I have it on the 20th May, but I still have tons of work to do in preperation for it :/ Have you done yours?

    Maths - Because It's funish.

    Physics - Because it’s fun.

    Chemistry - There is the possibility of seeing explosions. And therefore fun.

    Biology - I'm diabetic and therefore interested in why I don't work properly.

    ICT - I thought it might be a bit more technical than the GCSE course. I was wrong.

    Welsh Bac - Because the school forced me to. Still not quite sure why I need it...

    Anyone else doing the Welsh Bac?
