  1. Can the British Education System be described as "uninspiring"?

    where 8/10 students stated that they were fed up with school and its teaching methods. However although undoubtedly there are many flaws regarding how imaginative the system is there are also several positives. Firstly once a child takes their GCSEs there is an option at 16 to leave school and take on an apprenticeship instead, allowing students to further their education in a more creative way without damaging their options in the future. Also our syllabus contains creative subjects such as art or physical education allowing those with a more hands on approach to learning to take part in a subject which they are confident with.

General Studies is a mixture of studies of culture, politics, ethics, social studies, maths, science and technology, and with a range of subjects like that there's plenty of issues to keep you interested throughout. There'll be plenty of debates and the issues covered will be topical and relevant to your life.

It's difficult to know exactly what will be on the examination papers each year so it's important to keep abreast of what's happening in the news every week. The examinations will cover a range of topics and essay writing is a key skill to master. Marked by Teachers has a fabulous portfolio of essays and you'll find this resource of enormous benefit in learning how to plan and write the kind of examination answers that will succeed.

A number of Universities don't accept General Studies as an A level when considering admissions so it is important to assess your options. However if youare looking for an extra A level to take the knowledge and skills developed will prove useful if you are considering a degree in Social Studies or the humanities.

  2. Do they answer the question directly?

  • Discuss the statement " Art changes the world as much as government and politicians do"

    "In conclusion I agree with the statement that “Artists have a say, and what they say can change the world as much as politician can” even though politics and government have a bigger impact in our society as it’s more influential as every day we are currently on knowledge on the laws and news about government, on the other hand art can change the world as artist musician etc.. Have made a difference as they influenced people’s beliefs as they might change the way they see the world around them, and they might see life in a different prospective."
