A Level Choices for Best English Universties for what I want to do....
Posted on 2004-10-02
Hello members of Experts-Exchange I'd like some advice : ) . Im a year 11 pupil thats 5th form for others at a normal English secondary school. Im afraid my question will be rather blunt or maybe not hehehe lol.
For my GCSE's im predicted: an A/A* in Maths ,A/ A* in Physics ,A/ A* in Biology ,A/A* in Chemistry (I took triple/ modular science the most you can do so a qualification for each) an A/A* in ICT , A/A* in Geography , A/A* in RE and an A/A* in Business Studies . I got a B in my English Language (predicted C) - (everyone takes it 1 year early) Im not sure what im predicted in English Lit although i imagine im about a B.
I went to an openevening the day before yesterday about sixth form (thats AS levels and A levels). Normally with AS's you take 4 then you drop your least favourite one and do the rest for A level. (Pesonally I think the goverment is stupid making everyone do AS's its just more time wasted on preparing for exams and less learning but nvm )
At the moment im thinking about doing
2. Further Maths
4. I am undecided between ICT and Chemistry - Which one would be best for getting me into a university , im more confident in getting an A in ICT than I am in Chemistry for AS's and A levels. But which is better? Also I enjoy ICT more than Chemistry cause I find some large aspects of Chemistry rather boring. - Thats my first question
2. I enjoy programming alot at the moment im teaching my self C++ and using OpenGl for graphics , I'd like a course more weighted to programming although with some in deep hardware stuff in it to . As you can see I don't really know what course I should take and I'd like you brilliant programmers opnion of what course I should do and the best places in England / UK to do it? thats my second question.
(When I am older I would like to be a programmer : ) as a job (preferably games hehe ))
PS. Please do not go tell me to buy a book of universties etc I would like your opinions because I trust you expierance. lol
