    Hey, just wondering what the name of the school you are going to next year is? Also, just look through what topics the subject covers at AS/A2 level and decide which you like the most

    i dont feel entirely confortable giving out the name of the school because it is over the internet. just for personal reasons.
    and if only it was that simple :P i have deducted a few though... as you can see

    I honestly didn't feel like it went badly! I don't think it went great though. :tongue: I didn't have any history exams before it though :tongue:

    Pick physics if you're pretty good at maths, a science is probably your best bet at complimenting your A levels when Uni application time comes.
    This is truth.

    Summer 2009 is meant to mean freedom: two months break from any form of work or revision – having ended GCSE’s without starting my A level courses yet. I have recently received the news I’ve been accepted into a prestigious grammar schools (conditional to my results) come September I’ll be moving.

    This school is incredibly academic and excels in anything traditional, which I thought would be fine with Fine Art, English literature, French and Maths as my A levels.

    HOWEVER, everything about the art course there is awful: the teacher, the equipment, the facilities, the course itself. I don’t think I could bare it for 2 whole years.

    The conclusion?
    Plan A) continue with art and grin and bear it.
    Plan B) Drop it all together and take something else…
    Plan B looks rather appealing right now.

    The OTHER problem is that now I do not know what to fill my empty option block with… I need something that compliments English Literature because that is what I would like to continue to university.

    I was thinking:
    English Language (but I don’t want to seem like a one trick pony…)
    Further Maths (again… ditto)
    Theatre Studies (I have no/little dramatic experience but I am a confident speaker, good designer & loooooveeee creative writing)
    Philosophy & Ethics
    Classical Civilisation (This option is looking the most promising at the moment!)

    I obviously want to keep it quite traditional. My greatest attribute is my creativity & imagination, could anyone suggest something or lead me down the right path?

    Any help is VERY MUCH appreciated! I’m so confused!!

    I would take Classical Civilisation I started that at As-level last year and it was an AMAZING experience its fantastic if you'd rather learn about people and literature/art rather then remembering dates (one of the reasons I didn't enjoy history) its fascinating it actually swept me away which is a first for a subject and my teacher had a very boring voice and talked about mens things all lesson.... lol
