    At my college mainly Psychology lmao, but a lot of people also do English Literature (we have about 15 English teachers- it's actually insane)

    Biology used to be a pretty big class, but about half dropped out in the first month!
    My physics class has 4 students,
    Biology: 7
    Chemistry: 8
    Maths: 9

    Perks of private school xD

    Sociology.
    At least that was the case for the sixth form I went to. All classes were full and there were tons of people on a waiting list hoping for someone to drop out.

    In my school Maths and Physics seem to be the most popular.

    Biology and Chemistry follow very closely behind though

    I don't think they realised how hard it would be! A lot of people started with 4 and that happened to be the one they enjoyed the least

    Well I only started the private school in sixthform after completing my GCSEs in an ordinary comprehensive, although from what I have seen; walking along the corridors andpast class rooms; class sizes for GCSEs are larger around 15-20

    Bit different to the 35 in some of my GCSE classes! Do you prefer private to comprehensive?

    What subject do you reckon is the most popular at A level?
    Hey, don't you think it would be nice, if you add a poll to this thread? I would love to know how many people are voting for mathematics.
