    I believe I'm now going to have 6 A-levels and 2 AS-levels by the end of next year... I'm not really certain how or why I'm doing that many, but really it doesnt seem like that much effort right now (honestly). I seem to have plenty of free time at the moment while starting my upper sixth courses, and my lower sixth exams weren't densely packed at all- doing a mixture of AS exams and A2 exams spread them out nicely. I'm doing

    A-level:
    Maths
    Further Maths
    Chemistry
    Geography
    Psychology
    General Studies (yeah it doesn't really count...)

    AS-level
    Additional Further Maths
    Critical Thinking

    i have no idea. i heard after the AS year he suddenly decided to take more subjects (e.g. economics) and finished the alevel in one year. the thing i cant believe is that he took triple-and-a-half maths. legend.
    You can't take 3.5 a-levels as there are only 20 modules you can do and that gives a maximum of 3 A-levels. That's complete rubbish.

    Most odd. I probably wouldn't want to do those anyway. Interesting they offer that many. I wonder if someone out there is sad and is doing 24 for 4 maths A-levels...

    i'm not sure if u can get 4 maths alevels because some of the modules r "equal" in terms of difficulty. anyway that doesnt concern me as ive done my double maths.

    GENERAL STUDIES SHOULD NOT BE COUNTED AS AN A LEVEL. There's no point in doing it because all the decent uni's say "Not including general studies". I feel as though it's good to teach the subject though, useful skills are present in the course, but testing on it just gives extra uneccessary pressure.
    General studies is not taught at my school, but i still have done 5 full a levels (computing, maths, further maths, chemistry, physics). When people say "I'm doing 5 a levels: blah, blah, blah, blah and general studies"...i personally think to myself "So they're doing 4 a levels, and some extra enrichment work cos they go to a fancy college".
    Sorry, but that's how i feel about GS, agree with it or dont, up to you!

    Likely to do 6 AS Levels: Art, Eng Lit, Eng Lang, French, Geog and probably Maths but not sure

    In the end, you just have to be organised - I'm still going to have fun doing 6 AS Levels - you just have to know when you have to work and when you must have fun :cool:

    Oooh I think my physics teacher wrote the sylabus for that new A Level, he's been going on about it quite a lot. I think it has quite a bit of philiophy in it and like the history of science (not sure though) do you know what exam board it is??

    At our school, the maximum amount of A2's anyone's done is 4 (not including general studies). And the maximum amount of GCSE's is 11.5.They hardly let anyone do 4A2's either. I don't get why they are like this since there are loads of people on this site who do wayyy more.
