    At gcses is a bit of boring, cuz u r studying 10 subjects for gcse, and in some of them I am not even interested, therefore it is boring sitting doing work and listening to the teacher's speech. I want to study A-leves, becausew they are more professional qualifications and I will be studying only things that I will have and want to know.

    Yeah, i got sooo bored with chem, physics, eng lit etc by the end of yr 11. And i was sick of the way teachers treated you like 2 year olds. But now its 80% the same, which sucks.

    I disagree. At least at GCSE there was a large variety of subjects. Now it's merely four and although I do adore them all, it's an endless repetition. At GCSE, I was entertained by ten different subjects. That was fun.

    No, really.

    I'd much prefer to concentrate on four/five subjects even if the work load was heavier than GCSE.

    I still can't get over that you're the same age as me and doing A-Levels.

    i dont think a-level is particularly 'fun', i have to say that it is abit sad to find like any of the academic syllabus fun. It could be interesting, but not fun!

    I did an A level in yr 10. Its not that difficult. Remember this key advice:

    Its what you revise, not the amount you revise!

    Now you have experience of the opposite

    I seriously wish I was doing GCSEs again.

    There are also eleven year olds who are doing A-levels, no? It's not that much of a difference really. I'm but two months younger than the required age and count yourself lucky, I miss my GCSEs terribly. But then again, I'm more of an all-rounder so I selected my A-levels for variety instead of specialisation. This means that there is practically no overlap (e.g. huge overlap between Maths M1 and Physics) and I'm learning everything new.

    Variety is good. Don't dismiss GCSEs, people. They're a wonderful experience. Unless you take seven A-levels and get no life. Hmm.
