DD is also reporting lots of people dropping their 4th already and swapping subjects. She is already feeling much better about FM :) . I think it was partly the idea that it would be really hard and with a culture of swapping etc (don’t remember this from my day) it does make you question your own decisions a bit. Anyway, the house is much calmer this week!

DD did mention FM yesterday - it is the only way they allow 4 - but the look on my face shut that down fairly quickly!

DD is reading Paradise Lost at me.
Apparently this helps her in some way.

It doesn’t help me. Please send help. :lol:

Just grunt appropriately ever now & again. It usually works for me although I do occasionally run into trouble when I can't answer a question.

Given she knows what I got for Eng Lit O level (U, :oops: long story, wasn’t even supposed to be taking it) she hasn’t asked for help with English Lit for a Very Long Time.

As parents we are still flummoxed by her choice of it for A level.

Some great quotes there for A level years:

“This horror will grow mild, this darkness light.”

“I sung of Chaos and Eternal Night"

“What hath night to do with sleep?”

“For so I created them free and free they must remain.”

(I looked them up!)

Aargh! She wants to change again - she wants to drop French for Theatre Studies. Taking a deep breath and being supportive.

My friend's child has just started A levels. She managed to get a place at sixth form at a good local comprehensive having achieved 4s and 5s (and a couple of 6s) at her indie. They are making them all do 4 A levels. I think it might be because they're still doing AS levels and then they might let them drop 2 and this will give them enough UCAS points to apply for a university (does this make sense? I'm not sure) - the school told my friend it was in order to reduce free periods and the potential for messing about.
It does seem very hard, given that most relatively academic children are being encouraged to do 3 A levels, that children like her who aren't really academic are being made to do 4. She's struggling already.
