What is better to do either AS Business Studies or AS ICT?Watch
Computing + ICT coursework would make you want to step on lego.
Take Physics. It's a course that many Computer Science departments like. If you're good at maths, it will help your physics.
For AS, I took Maths, Further Maths, Computing, Physics and ICT.
I dropped Computing (because it wasn't timetabled) but ICT was the MOST workload (for me) due to the amount of coursework (Edexcel).
I am doing AS ICT right now and it is VERY boring.
I took both Business Studies and ICT for both years. I would say Business Studies is "better" to do as like 8472 said, the coursework kills. I was able to cope with it, thankfully but not many people in my class were able to do so. Business is quite interesting once you get the hang of it, it just requires a lot of patience.
It depends on what exam board your sixth form/college is doing. I just finished my A2 year and during both years, the coursework and exam were both under the AQA exam board. In AS, about 40% of the coursework counted, I think I can't be too sure now. But in the second year, the coursework played a bigger part. My teacher did tell us that this year ICT at that college would be switching boards to the WJEC exam board, so I don't know if that works for all colleges. You'll have to find out and see if it's something you can handle.
