I know a few people who are 30+ who do evening classes on A levels just to increase knowledge.
I was wondering if extra A-Levels impress universities/give u an advantage etc. since i know people with like 7 and 8 A-Levels. Is this an advantage? and if it is, it it a considerable one?
"hah I have 7 (8) A-Levels which is more than you".
Universities may see it in the sense that you are committed, and prepared to learn new things maybe, but in no way would it give you a major advantage.
universities like to see evidence of extra cericular activities.
I think doing 7 or 8 A Levels is just too much work. I mean, how can you manage (unless of course one or two of them are languages you're fluent in or something)? I do know someone that's gonna end up with 6 A Levels though and he doesn't need two of them for university.
The best violinist in our school, was allowed to take 5 ASs. But he drop one after a month saying he couldn't cope. But with all his extra cericular (I'm copying Ollie spelling because I have no idea!) thing I agree.
This is what he does.
Monday - Jazz Band (Double Bass)
Tuesday - Sympony Orchester (Double Bass, I think)
Wednesday - Nothing I know of
Thursday - Ditto
Friday - I know he does something but what I don't know
Saturday - RCT Youth Orchester (Violin sometimes Double Bass mostly)
Sunday - Glam Orchester (Violin)
There are a lot more but I'm not his stalker so I wouldn't know.
I'm considering 5 myself but I'm planning 1 A level per year by night as you do an A level in one year at college. And doing 3 through school.
A level Music, Business and French - school
A level Accounting and Maths - college
