    My friend does history, economics and french! Nice range of subjects! My school doesn't offer the EPQ, are you doing it with school or out of school?

    That's fine! My school make you do 4 so that you can drop one after the first year, but only doing 3 means you can focus more on them! Good luck.

    I was going to take further maths, I'm not sure between that and the english literature! Not so sure about the chemistry and physics because I'm useless, but I'm sure you'll do great!

    I'm doing it in school!
    Because I go to a Grammar school, there is a lot of attention on universities so we are offered a range of enrichment qualifications that universities like. So you can choose from Core Maths, Perspectives on Science and EPQ.

    I go to a comprehensive school so perhaps that's why! Wish I could do it out of school, but not sure where offers it. Any ideas what grades you want this year of next year? Or even what university you want to go to?

    I'm hoping for 6A*s and 4As as they're my target grades this year, and then ideally I'd like A*A*AA for AS and A*AA for A2 and then hopefully study Law at Cambridge, but if not Cambridge then maybe Manchester because I live in Manchester

    I'm doing maths, physics and chemistry as level. Likely going to drop either physics or chemistry. And next year do A2 maths, AS Further maths, AS Computer Science, carry on with physics most likely. And also do Btec 3D Design as there's no exam and basically a fun lesson to get away from all the logical lessons.

    Yeah.. I'm almost considering switching physics to something else, like chem, but then again, I think I might want to do engineering.

    But German I do like, though I would have liked to drop it in year 13 if given the chance.

    Exam board mei btw
    As level maths is fairly easy as long you put the work in, it also depends which applied module you do. I do stats and it's fairly boring. Core 1 is easy but you need to put a lot of work to get a high grade. Core 2 is a lot harder than core 1 but is still somewhat straightforward.
