Mickey Mouse SubjectsWatch
I remember reading that Maths A2 was in the around 75% I think. I remember comparing that to the 20% that drop out after AS and thinking that it was quite impressive.
Computing/IT (god I hate when they group them) is statistically the most difficult to get an A in.
Perhaps the average IT student is weaker though:P
Since when is a students ability related to the subjects they take?!? Doing maths, physics etc... doesn't make you a stronger student so why would taking ICT make you weaker?!?
I was being facetious! Im sure its possible that theres some correlation though. .
Possibly not as gullible as I thought.. Read this :http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/uk/693806.stm
P.S. I think General Studies is DEFINITELY a mickey mouse subject. - You only really have to sit the exams to do well in it - the thing is most people can't be bothered in the exams and most leave early having slept through most of the first hour anyway. (In my experience)
As for General Studies, I couldn't possibly comment - I never took that particular course at A'level (although I suspect I would have flunked it 'cause I'm not a natural polymath!)
