Just thought I'd say it, A Levels are as broing as watching paint dry. For the record I did Maths, Physics, RS and Art. I can't wait to get onto something less limited... anyone else think this?!

I'd have to agree, I found them boring too, but only as boring as I've found most of the other stuff like GCSEs. I dunno what you mean by limited wither; do you mean unchallenging or unenjoyable or what?

The only difference I can see between A levels and uni is you get to do what you want in uni but you have to do what unis want in A levels. I guess from that respect, uni can be more interesting/less boring simply because it's more along your interest.

A Levels, you jump thru hoops endlessly and don't actually need to learn / understand anything at all. You do what it says on the syllabus and aren't credited for going further into what interests you about a given subject. Thats limiting.

Yes, in some ways they are limiting, but just because you don't get credited for going further into a subject does not mean that you are not allowed to! So you don't *have* to find it limiting.

ur the one who should do the further research into studies if u really wanted to. the teachers dont want to pressurise pple into doing that. if ur really interested , u should be going further and stop saying a level sucks.



ps. it does. but i dont care. makes life much easier

I'm not saying I just sit on my ass dudes!! Sure, I read about stuff, its just boring doing the other stuff. I still maintain they're limiting in terms of the exams, as you have to learn to jump thru exam hoops, play the game and be boring.

A Levels also suck now because the AS-A2 system is a shocker and is distuptive. AS is completely trivial and A2 is trying to do what A Levels did in two years.

Sorry if I seem a lil negative, I'm just so glad to be free and moving on. Peace guys.
