i just wanted to forestall any responses along the lines of 'you're just resentful because you're not as effortlessly brilliant as me'.
i do have my flaws though. a B in AS History. oh the shame.
it's okay, TSR is full of nerds and liars.
I thought there was less work (then I got my results...) but I think if you aren't naturally gifted at doing exams- There is a lot of work to do there, and you have to ensure that you can actually make the examiner tick the said boxes. I do think only have a certain number of subjects is clearly a good thing and does make studying easier (especially if you do a group of subject- I do History and Politics- Both require similiar skills, I suppose it is the same for sciences...). I know people don't have to enjoy the subjects, but if you do really love them, it makes life so much better.
I've found AS Levels to be sooooo much easier than GCSEs. I seem to spend most of my time asleep.
