In As I didn't take it seriously, went to no lessons yet still got a B. However now both Birmingham and Leicester have included it in my offer. E.g Birmingham want A- English B- French and a C in EITHER Sociology or general for the course English and French. Leicester was the same just with ABC. So now I'm glad i'm doing it.
we have to do it, so i wouldn't bother, concentrate on your other subjects
I'm only doing it because we get made to. We have a lesson once every fortnight which is a total waste of time because about 5 people go. If you're getting good grades in your other subjects don't fret about GS too much.
The thing that trouble's me is. If i'm looking to apply to a decent uni and i got AAAAU ( the U being in general studies ) wouldn't that go against me becuase i can't exactly hide the results from them (someone told me that the results get sent straight to em).
I think it's worth it. I went to exactly 3 lessons (or maybe it was 2), did no revision and then got an A (90%, to be exact). You'll do fine, an A is easily within your grasp. Because, all you need to do, to guarantee full marks in the essay questions, is study the mark schemes for previous past papers, and then when it comes to your essays ,just do what it says you need to for top marks because if you do, no matter how flimsy your points are, if you use the right structure they'll have to put you into the top marking band.
Hope that helps and good luck...
