    me and my 2 brothers were talking in the car the other day and realised that between us we have:

    13 different subjects at AS standard

    and then 10 of those are right up to A2 level

    can anyone beat this for variety in a family? or are there people who've done exactly the same subjects as siblings?

    I won't beat it but I'll share anyway.

    I've got (hopefully) A-Level maths, economics and accounting, and AS further maths and politics.

    My younger brother has just done AS English language, psychology, sociology, media studies and general studies.

    You can see who the clever one in the family is then :cool:

    We can?

    A-level subject choices and grades aren't much of an indicator of intelligence. And since I'm an only child and the only one in my family that's ever done A-levels, I can safely say that there isn't that much diversity in my family.

    lol, it's like that in my family- (AS subjects are in brackets), my older brother is so intelligent and me and my twin are just average. and we all do such different subjects

    my older brother- chemistry, physics, gen studies, english literature (geography)

    me- maths, psychology, philosophy, gen studies, (critical thinking), (economics)

    my twin- economics, history, english langauge, gen studies (theatre studies)

    Well, my sister (who will be starting yr 12 in September) and I have no subjects in common whatsoever.

    I did English Lit, Geography, History and Maths. She plans to study Biology, Chemistry, Physics and Psychology.

    My younger brother is only 12 at the moment, so its a bit early to predict his A-Level choices. Perhaps we'll end up w/ 12 different subjects between us (if A-Levels are still around in a few years)

    Worryingly, my brother and I share only two subject discrepancies at GCSE and A-Level combined.

    GCSE: He chose French where I chose Graphic Products.
    A-Level: He chose French where I chose History.
