    I know this sounds cliche but thats the reason why you need to make sure you choose what you like in a level. If you know it will definitely not interest you, you should never choose it in the first place. I chose science courses not really minding it but now i feel like it has become more interesting as i have started to enjoy it morr. However if i have chosen something i hate then it is guaranteed that it will be hell.

    In a certain agree, I do: Whenever I have learnt something about a topic what is so much interesting and would go on with it, but I can't because the lesson plan prevents it, yes in this point of view structured learning may demotivating. Not boring, but demotivating.*

    However, it is so much important to give it a clear structure to learn the relevant topics for deeper understanding, even if it gets boring for the most sometimes. *

    I actually found A-levels to be much more interesting than GCSEs because there was so much scope for independent learning. Yes, if you just stick to what you're taught in class, it's incredibly dull. But, if you go off and do your own research it makes the whole thing almost fun.

    Yeah, that is quite familar to me: Whenever I did not get a satisfying answer or I was interest in get to know more about a topic, I was looking for people who had a clue because of their profession. If teaching in class is dull and not interesting, I am looking for a surrounding where it is interesting. *

    I found at a level I found what I actually enjoyed doing and what I thought was a good a level to take.
    Some subjects I found a greater passion for and became more interested in but some subjects I grew to loathe and couldn't wait to be rid of after finishing my a levels. Just my experience but this is what happened for me.

    I don't think its boring but I definitely think its difficult. You have to remember a lot of information in detail, you have to write a lot of stuff down and structure essays in new ways and all of this in a short period of time.

    I learn far more by sitting and listening to the teacher than I ever would writing PowerPoint presentations for something like a BTEC

    If the teachers are capable of explaining the topics understandable and interesting (better: even to refer to the meanings in our everyday or working life!), so it may even the best method of learning. But if teachers are teaching just to kill time, it is the worst. Unfortunately, I had some of those teachers before home schooling.

    I think it comes down to subject content and teaching delivery.

    I liked or shall I say, I preferred my AS level to my A2 level. All the modules at A2 bored me to death even though I never changed teachers apart from one.
