Good work

I just hope I can pull that off. Unfortunately my teacher has just had a baby or something (i didnt know he was married ) so the supply teacher hasn't got a clue :mad:

Oh well. Maybe it'll work out - HOPEFULLY it'll work out

I think 5 alevels is brilliant:

* if you can withstand the work pressure of five A levels
* can successfully study them without affecting social/extra-curricular life

i agree
..and bow to anyone doing 5 A2 or more...it takes enough motivation to do 4, but real dedication to your studies is required. very worthy of respect

Just wondering since some of you are doing 5 A-levels, did your entry requirements for uni wanted 3 A-levels or all 5?

Has anybody had any experience and could help me - would this be too hard?
hey kid,
i'm doing 6 alevels (A2)

maths
history
physics
french
english lit
spanish

Now I think i'm gonna drop one coz i can't handle. I'm totally overstressed, don't have time to go out anymore a exasm are in 19weeks...i have to do like 1 pass paper per day adn then a couple of essays. I'm doing my eng lit and spanish in 4 months so im rushing through my coursework, sleeping 5 hours a day...I h ad to drop the 4 hours of tennis I used to do per day and barely have time on my own.
Now this is my life at the mo, lower isxth was pretty easy for me but now it's not hard there's just sooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo oo much work to do.
now kid, you do whatever you feel like it, but I would go for 4 alevels. Oxford wasn' too impressed that I ws doing 6 alevels and predicted 6 As so don't bother
good luck

btw...all the offers I ahd was based on just 3 alevels AND i was rejected by UCL without an interview so it doesn't make a a diff. You're required to do just 3 alevels. If you do more than, good for you.
My friend applied to UCL....got 11 A* for GCSES, 7As at AS and is predicted 6 As at A2 AND does like loads of fencing and proffesional running and has a great social life as well as extra curricluar writing, great ps, great referance AND was rejected by UCL without an interview :p: :rolleyes:

Do most schools/colleges let you do 1 A-level in one year, and 4 over 2 years?

Just the 3 - but they excluded one of the A-Levels from the offer as it was an arts subject and was in no way relevant to the engineering course I'd applied for.

I appreciate people's experiences etc but I still stand by that 5 is perfectly possible with not tooooo much stress and with still the time to do lots of extracurricular stuff. At the end of the day, it's down to the person who's taking them, and I think if you want to do it, you should start with them and just see how it goes. If you start off with 4 and then think you should have done 5 coz you're finding you've got a lot of spare time on your hands then it's too late. Go for the option with most options! If you find it too much - drop one - no harm done. Whenever I've got choices to make I always choose the one that would leave me with least regrets in hindsight. If you don't try, you'll never know. Go for it you've got nothing to lose
