    AS Level General Studies

    Has anybody else got the General Studies exam tomorrow / done AS Level GS in the past few years? Is there actually any point in revising for it? x

    Re: AS Level General Studies

    Been a couple of years since I did it but I doubt it's changed much. Basically you just want to make sure you have a rough knowledge of recent events and issues for the long-answer questions and waffle your way through it. The short-answer questions are relatively simple. I can remember one question from the science paper I think that was the fox/chicken/seed/boat logic problem. Made me laugh when I saw it lol. Overall I wouldn't worry too much about it as it's just a waste of time.

    Actually, that might have been for the A2 papers. I can't remember hehe.

    It's nothing to worry about really...
    You just need to be able to write down your opinions and experiences and stuff...
    I didn't revise for my AS last year and i won't revise for the A2 this year...

    I did it in 2004. I didn't revise and got a C. My friend didn't revise and got a U. I honestly didn't think it was possible to fail it, it's just general knowlege and common sense.
