What is the difference between General Studies B, General Studies A & General Studies watch

    • Thread Starter

    Ok so my school does General Studies B, and I got a B in it at AS. I'm carrying it onto A2 simply because I enjoy it, and I don't really find it strenuous.

    But when filling my AS qualifications into UCAS, I've noticed all these different types of General Studies.

    With unis that accept General Studies, do they only accept a certain one? Is there one they prefer? Or are they all relatively the same, just called different things by different exam boards.


    well from universities that i have looked at, no one really see "general studies" or "critical thinking" as an important course except if you have specified which university you are looking at.
