I did nine, is any esle doing the IB by any chance????
I've only met one other student on these forums who's doing her IB in the UK next year. I'm liking the choices, but why methods? Its going to be extra work and universities rarely take it into consideration.

Anyway it looks like almost everybody here is doing those easy & meaningless A-levels ... :rolleyes:

I did 14; went to one of those state schools were all the management team care about is results. Everyone in my year had to do at least 11 or 12, but some of us were encouraged/pressured into taking more. I expect that A-levels will be a walkover in comparison, but who am I kidding

I already got an 'A' at a level last week (before I even get my GCSE results). And I'm tellin' ya: One A Level is like 5 GCSEs. That's all I have to say!

Short course GCSEs.

I know. I don't understand the point either.

It's if a school doesn't have enough timetable space for the whole GCSE, or if they can't be bothered to hire a teacher full time.

My school had both those reasons, I did two short course GCSEs (RS and ICT)

Short Courses are counted as half a GCSE.
