So back on topic...

Juxtapiped, are you sure you got 100%? Your Art teacher's opinion might be different to the moderators. Telling you it would be suitable for A2 coursework seems a bit 'over-the-top'. First of all, you might not even get in the Sixth Form - what happens if you only have 4 A*-C? Secondly, different teachers have different opinions and what might be 100% to this teacher could be 50% to another - I know because one of my A-level projects was given 80 (an A) by one teacher and 40 (an E) by someone else

I think this teacher may have raised your hopes when it wasn't necessary.

i'd like to point out that it isn't uncommon to get 100% for GCSE art, all art students at my school gained 95% or more (with a few exceptions obviously) after moderation. I wouldn't get too excited about it! Also my bro got told the same thing as you with art, his art teacher was pushing him to do 5 a-levels and to submit his GCSE work for alevel etc. I don't think it's a good idea for you to be skipping sixth form. Actually it's a damn **** idea. Sorry.

Well done for doing so well! I think it's probably a good idea to finish up sixthform and give you more options later - having some extra A and AS levels will really widen the range of things available to you - and you'll have a good time both in sixthform and uni. Also, by the time you do A level and submit your A level coursework, presumably that will be even better - and likely you'd get into a better exam or course. Goodluck!

what the hell is wrong with you kid? if your coursework is that good, why on earth would you not submit it for A2. fair enough you will be the 'odd one out', but seriously, I don't think it can bother you that much? thats like saying no to having sex with a gorgeous woman!

Hi - sorry I've not replied at all - I've been away all day.

Anyway - what my art teacher said was a bit vague and I don't think he was in favour of doing it.

He said that it was a-level quality, and then said "in fact I could enter this now at a-level and it would get an A, so you could do another subject instead", and then went even further saying "some students go straight on to university; but i don't recommend you do as you'd miss out on the 6th form experience.

God know's if he is serious - he's very bizarre, and he didn't seem to say anything more about the idea.

The moderator came round ages ago and my teacher told me that no results were changed - so I guess I still get the 100%.

Sorry if I cam across as arrogant or anything; I was just curious as to wehat you would think of his ideas.

That's all right, but you must admit it did sound kinda doubtful

Yes! I agree - I was kind of shocked when he went on about it - I don't think I'm that good really.

It was just a weird thing he'd said - wondered what u thought of it.

Wouldn't that idea be impossible?? Surely you have to enter a piece for AS-level and then a totally different piece for A2??? Due to this requirement would it not be impossible to simply bypass A-levels and jump to Uni??

Also - there wasn't much to my art exam - I can't imagine a whole a-level (or it might have been an AS) cold be obtained from a smallish GCSE exam.

I bet it was just his way of saying "do it for a-level"

yeah probably. Its unlikely that you'll be able to use your pieces/exam sketchbook for AS/A2 because the theme of the unit is unlikely to tie in with the theme of your work. Also at AS there are much more marks for the bullplop element of art ie choose an artist, critically appraise his/her work etc. and it is unlikely you would have done this at GCSE. You might be able to get away with submitting a few pieces here and there, but alot of your current work will be totally irrelevant to AS/A2. Its pointless going straight to A2 cos you wont get enough UMS for a decent grade. You should do it for AS at least, cos it is a nice break from essay subjects, but i reckon you'll still need to do most of the work.
