    Seriously, it's not possible to fail the YE Exam. Did you even see the questions?

    "What is a bank account?" What's OCR on? Weed? :rolleyes:

    Sorry. Bit hyper today. And they're letting me do Further Maths. Oh well, Baz makes it all seem a good idea
    Yeah, it was very easy, but why hasn't she come and found me and told me what I got?!

    Hehe, good girl! And guess what I had today? My first ever AS maths tutoring session !

    Woo! I asked the Head of Economics about Economics AEA. He asked me what AEA meant...

    I seriously do wonder about my school at times. However, he said that I can take it if I find him a syllabus and some information on it so yay

    Ellie, are you dropping anything to take up Maths?
    Lol, my school forced me into doing the AEA! Nope, Maths Economics Geog German and Bio to A2, with Critical thinking as AS, so 6 ASs and 5 A2s for me Hope I can handle it!

    Wow. I'd be killing myself about now if I were you Though Critical Thinking isn't a real subject (hell, I'm taking it - I'm allowed to insult it :rolleyes: ) so I suppose that makes life easier? I shouldn't talk, I'll have 4 A2s, 6 ASs.

    Poor you though.
    Well at least it means I have the flexibility to drop a subject if it all starts getting too much, I'm fairly confident at the moment though. I actually really enjoyed starting maths today, I guess I'm weird! :rolleyes: First day back today though, bit of a shock to get up that early, and all my teachers are making me work!!!

    Hmmm...if you can do it, and you want to - knowledge is power after all - then fine.

    BUT - multiple extra A2s are of limitted value; some top schools don't allow their students to take more than 3 A2s. I think your school is being rather silly if it is forcing you. OF course, to give you the option is fine...

    Just watch out you don't swap 4 As for 3 As and 2 Bs, which is less desirable. Don't swap 3 As for 2 As and 2 Bs either...

    No, no my school forced me into doing the AEA, the subjects are my choice. If it becomes too much, I'll let some go, but I'm looking forward to it at the moment, I honestly couldn't decide which of my subjects to drop.

    And yeah, I might go to that deianra, though I have the land econ open day next fri, and I shouldn't be taking too much time off. Bath always struck me as quite a boring place, but I might well take a look actually!

    When I did the YE exam it was very easy, required basic business knowledge and common sense. I don't think many people fail.

    It's interesting that the bigger companies do worse. I have always thought that 12 people was the best size for a YE company, if you have more than 16 responsibilities become over stretched; leading to diseconomies of scale and all that.
