Practice shows that most students of the A-level program today choose a subject of a high level of complexity. This is due to tough competition for places in prestigious universities . In the last few years, entrants have switched from studying physical culture, communicative sciences and general disciplines to traditional mathematics, economics, and natural sciences.
Institutions dictate the rules
The prestigious universities in England made it clear to the educational community that in their benches they want to see students who are truly ready for intellectual activity and challenging academic tests. To confirm the relevant skills allow high scores obtained in examinations in traditional subjects. The choice of light disciplines on the A-level has become unreasonable.
A-level: items and estimates in numbers
The latest A-level exams confirmed the growing popularity of traditional subjects. So, last year the demand for the economy increased by more than 7%, for chemistry - by 5%, for mathematics - by 4.5%. Demand for physics, chemistry and biology increased by 2%. At the same time, 16.6% of candidates lost their communication skills, almost 12% in executive art, 14.5% in physical education. General 9 subjects and critical thinking refused to pass every 9-10 British schoolchild.
In general, the number of excellent students who received an A-A * assessment on the exam fell by 0.3%. And there were more goodies in Britain. Estimates AB received almost 53% schoolchildren. Of these, most received seats in the country's universities. The reform of education with the abolition of restrictions on the admission of applicants with ratings from ABB and higher on the A-level was said.
The country needs qualified specialists
The British Ministry of Education noted that a global transition to the study of serious traditional subjects will positively affect the country's economy as a whole. This, according to Minister Liz Truss, will help the country remain competitive on the international market.
Still the right way to successful employment is to get Higher Education and University Degree. But each independently chooses a direction of activity. British students are on the right track. The study of complex subjects promotes intellectual and personal development.
