There was this rumour going around at my school that if you don't participate in any extra-curricular activities you are forced to do general studies.
These activities include sports leaders, young enterprise, business language, or paired reading. I did business German at GCSE, I hate sports, didn't get picked for the young enterprise team and I don't want to do paired reading as working with children isn't something I want to do in the future.
So basically I'm going to be forced to take general studies.
This rumour was confirmed by my form tutor when she briefly said 'when general studies gets added to your timetable.'
So my issue is, i don't want to do general studies as I want to apply to a uni which doesn't see it a good a-level. So I don't want to put the effort In and focus on ,y actual subjects. But I'm a good student and don't like to see bad things on my reports, so is there any way of getting out of it?

To be honest only the staff at your school could tell you. For me GS was compulsory no matter what and I know it's like that in a lot of places because they have to make students do a certain amount of hours every week. Sorry I can't help more.
