I have:

English, French, history, physics, geography, maths, religious studies and government and politics. Some people think physics and maths are weird in there, but physics complements geography and maths complements physics. Also I like them. Also I had to do a science anyway.
how are you doing that many?

French, Maths and Religious Studies

The only other person who I know who took the same A-levels as me is my old Philosophy of Religion teacher, who went to the same Uni as me to do half the same course

You have to do six subjects as part of the IB, plus General knowledge/critical thinking, plus sport, plus charity work, plus music, plus EPQ. I still think that unis don't really understand the IB or how much work is required for it.
I can see why I didn't do the IB. :rolleyes: I hate sport.

So I do Sociology, RS, Psychology and Geography which seem pretty compatible with each other, however I also do Young Enterprise and Enterprise, Employability and Personal Finance which many find odd. I'm also hoping to pick up EPQ next year

is Maths Chemistry Biology Drama weird?
I feel like I get judged with drama, people just pass me off as a wishy washy arty-type, when really I'm very academic. This is fairly obvious when you meet me, but I'm worried on paper seeing Drama as an A level kind of reduces the credibility of the other choices? Helps

holy **** :O

gurl you CRAZY for taking all of them subjects at IB level :O
why do UK universities want more than 3 or 4 IBs then ._. but 3 A-levels are enough?
it don't make sense...
Its compulsory to take 6 IBs and as a whole they go in less depth than A levels which is why you take so many. Unis look for 6IBs, 3 major and 3 minor subject - as an equivalent to 4 A levels.
