    Hi team!

    Anyone done any unusual subjects? There was one chap looking for past papers for Chinese A Level which I also plan to do. I'm considering Environmental Science and Human Biology too which, whilst they're not too unusual in themselves, they're not that available either!

    Anyone had chance to do Archaeology? Zoology? Classical Civilization? Ecology? Etc?

    Popular music industries?! Cool!

    Ours has drama (which is very very rare up here), and human biology, Life And Work, Accident Prevention (the previous two being mickey mouse subjects), Ceramics, Photography (both very popular) and......{drum roll}....Statistics and Survival Cookery (as one subject)

    I also think a lot of schools in Scotland teach Tourism.

    at my previous school they did application of science or something i can't remember the name of it but it was basically practical application of science, at this school you could do modern hebrew, and sociology is that wierd?

    I did A/S Human Biology which is evil, nobody take it. Don't listen to what I just said because I did in the night, only three hours a week and my lecturer had a "first," and never did or could explain anything.

    Why not do A level Palaeontology (sp?) since I know a lot of people who would. Dinosaurs rule (or did)

    It might that there are too many A-level courses now...

    I think uni's would be impressed about students taking unusual A-level subjects that lead to their degree course.

    i had dance at my old school. Alot of people took it because they thought it would be a doss....and how wrong they were!
    That has got to be one of the most difficult A levels i've seen as the pass rate is quite high. Glad i didn't take it

    I used to dance a lot when i was younger so i would have seriously considered it. I doubt it would be easy, i was never a great dancer anyway, it would just make a change from the usual. I wanted to do theatre studies but decided it would be better for my uni applications if i did something more theorectical instead.

    I miss performing arts
