    I'm still taking it and although there is a lot of content the topics are interesting!
    Is it mostly human body or plant based?

    I'd say there's a good mix however slightly more emphasis on animal/ human biology.

    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.
    That would be cool what would you like the poll to be about? As in whats the most popular subject at your school or as in what subjects do you take?

    The poll should refer to the topic of this thread. So I would say you should create a poll with the question: "what is/was your most popular A level subject". Or something similar to my recommendation.

    That’s good to hear, I’m not looking forward to the plant aspect.

    Maths with Psychology second.

    Curiously, those numbers don't match up to exam entries:

    https://www.gov.uk/government/upload...in_England.pdf

    Taking Maths as an example more people got a result than were entered in 2017.

    More double counting that Gordon Double-Counter Brown.

    The JCQ stats are for UK and the DFE are for England - so the difference should be the results from Wales and NI.
