    To all those doing A-Level welsh baccalaureate, I am wondering how many lessons there are, how much work there is and if you can drop it after a year as it is compulsory at my school Thanks.

    hi! I'm doing the welsh bacc too since i live in wales so yeah cant avoid that. it's compulsory, you cant drop it, during my interview the welsh bacc teacher told me it's 4 lessons a week. it's rigorous as theyve changed it up a little. but it's worth it (kind of) ''most'' universities will accept welsh bacc as one of your ''A levels''

    so say i have two good A levels at grade A but my third A level is a C, but my welsh bacc is an A then i can use that A instead. university of Exeter for example will allow your welsh bacc as an entry requirement along with 2 other A levels. some unis will only accept welsh bacc along with 3 A levels, some unis dont accept it as an entry at all.
    the only way to avoid it i guess is to move out of wales
