How is there no WBQ thread - the worlds most pointless qualification that saps away all revision time
Also if one person fails everyone fails but it is a pass or fail - such an unfair qualification but it is worth 120 ucas points...
So i basically want to know what level course you are doing (if you do wbq) then your opinion and then if you would refer to friends who dont take it to take it
Also if you need any help (self help thread) just lay down your thoughts and problems and we can see if we can help you

Welsh Baccalaureate Qualification?
If one person fails it doesn't mean everyone fails, but if you fail one part it's all failed.
The intermediate is a waste of time and advanced isn't too bad, but it's still not the best. For example I say everyone should be given six blocks.
You pick however many a levels you want. If you pick less than x amount (probably 4) then you have to do it.
A lot of universities accept it, but top top unis won't have it as part of an offer.
They want to start grading it though so good pass, fair pass etc. So there will be a change soon...
All in all if you're aiming sky high I think it's not as useful as another a level say.

I did the WBQ. So pointless in terms of learning, but a fair few of my unis included it in my offers. If one person fails, it obviously doesn't mean everyone does. If the school sends off a failed piece of work in the sample an says it's a pass, then it just means they have to send all the work to be moderated. At my school they didn't care whether you did the work properly or not unless you were in the sample. The unlucky people whose work was being sen taway had to do tons of extra work polishing it up. Bit of a joke really. I know people who avoided doing entire elements of the Bac. completely, yet still got the qualification.
I did the advanced, and it was compulsory. i wouldn't recommend it, as it stands now, but if you think you'll need a bit of extra help reaching your uni offers then it'll likely be useful.
