Well in my sixth form the top ten students dont get a choice! We have to take critical thinking lessons and not general studies. But we still have to sit both general studies exams at the end of both years.

As for my results today im very happy Very Happy

Geography - A
Chemistry A2 - B
Chemistry AS - C
Critical thinking - C
History (very predictable and an epic FAIL) - U

haha, but overall very good. For my geography this year i only need to get a D on my last exam to get an A overall for my A level geography haha

Sad Sad Sad Sad

Business coursework - A
Business exam - B (Ruins my run of straight A's in A Level Business and that's meant to be what I'm best at. Also peeved because I thought it went better than my Psychology.
Psychology - A
Economics - B Sad Sad Sad I knew it wasn't brilliant but I am SO annoyed as the UMS I got for it takes my overall UMS over the three units to ONE stupid mark below an A!!!! I need 81 out of the last paper for an A and one of the teachers thinks I'm perfectly capable, while the other said, "That's a tall order." Well thank you very much, I've just had my second kick in the teeth from this subject and you decide that it comes in threes and hand out the next one! After the 75 I got for Unit 1, I spent most of the year thinking I wasn't any good at Economics and I got 75 for Unit 3 as well so now I'm back there again. I just couldn't understand what he was banging on about today; have completely lost interest in it after that. I am just so annoyed with it, I want to resit both but they told me not to.

Also, 85 for Unit 1 in Psychology and 85 for Unit 3. I'm just so annoyed that not even one mark has been different between Unit 1 and 3 when I did more work than I've ever done in my life. It just made the work I did for unit 1 look non-existant, lol.

If you're looking for what's easier, General Studies without a doubt. Part of it is multiple choice which is easy. Good grades in it are possible, but it doesn't often happen due to the lack of good teaching, so students have to answer the essay questions without really being taught the content, which isn't easy.

The problem with it is the lack of respect for it by universities, which contributes to low results as students reason that it is more worthwhile to devote time to the subjects that they've actually chosen. Critical Thinking isn't as well respected as an A Level you'd actually choose, but more universities will consider that as opposed to General Studies.

From what I've seen though, General Studies does have some content, whereas Critical Thinking is more about constructing and analysing arguments.

So, if you're happy that you can get into the uni that you want (if you want to go that is) without an extra A Level on top of the ones you're choosing, go for General Studies. If you think you might need extra, Critical Thinking would be better although as I've said, not all universities will include it, especially Russell Group ones. If there's one that you're more interested in than the other though, that might be better, as would General Studies if you want to avoid long essay writing to an extent.

Ok thankyou and thankyou emma

I'll probablly take General studies as my essays usually go down the pan

I got the results back from my last science modules back yesterday Sad B's in Chemistry and Physics and a C in Biology... I'm usually a straight A student, but ahh well! I'll be retaking Chemistry and Biology. I'm still averaging an A in Physics and Chemistry, but if I mess up the next modules, that's the med school dream gone! I'm not too stressed about it though Smile I am determined to be a doctor, but if that goes seriously wrong I'll just do English Very Happy All should be good though!

The entire school are in for Psychology remarks! Completely ruined results day. I only hope they don't pick figures out of thin air because of the high number of remarks.

I got A's in Business and Economics. B in General Studies. D in a paper I thought I'd aced and an A in the one that started talking about nuclear physics which I guessed. Wouldn't pay for a GS remark though.

The psychology results were odd across the whole school and no one has an A as it stands. I'm 2 marks off. My module grades are AAAD; I thought it was some sort of sick joke.

My faith in exam boards has gone so I'm glad I don't have to. I hate this, it makes me feel like I should have done more work when according to my teacher I'd done plenty and was going to sail through. I must be mental but if they don't sort it I want to come home from uni and retake it.

Same. I've been working at an A in Economics but struggling to get it in the exam. 320 is an A.. 346! WTH . My resit went up 18 marks but it turns out I needn't have bothered doing it.

I think I was meant to go back in for my Bacc result on Thurs. Pointless, we can work out what we've got and people waiting for remarks might have to be regraded for that.

Tell me about it. I heard NI don't let people drive at over 45 mph till a year after they pass?? Encourage people to get impatient and overtake why don't they.

Next year will come round quicker than you think.

Are you going into Year 12? I forget the differences in education.. we do GCSE'S in Year 11 but then Scotland do Standard Grade instead.

It's on the news here that the GCSE results came out today. They must have changed it. My school don't seem to have caught on as in my results on Thursday was a piece of paper that said the school was open on the 26th for GCSE's lol! It's a shame they don't publicise it more rather than recycling articles that claim that the exams are getting easier blah blah blah lol!

What exam is that and what did they do wrong? They don't make a big deal of it when an exam is messed up here. There's a problem with the Psychology which I did and the Biology from January which as far as I am aware wasn't on the news. The exam boards just try to make out it's not their fault when they have set questions that they shouldn't have. The only one that hit the news here was when a Music exam had the answers printed on the back of it lol!
