Well... I was doing a level maths, geography, biology, critical thinking and photography. However i was hating photography so just changed onto eng lang and lit. Biology is intersting, but quite a massive step up from gcse, so unless you get good grades at gcse i wouldnt recommend it. Maths is not as bad as i was expecting, and as loong as you put some hard work in it should be ok. Photography was awful-very boring as most of seemed to be computer based. Lots of my friends are doing history and enjoy it, though the work load is not appealing! I think the best thing is to pick subjects for the future and not just because you enjoy them. I picked photography and ended up hating it, and it wasnt even relevant for my career choices. Interest, GCSE grades and career/uni, the things you gotta bear in mind!Hope this helps!

geog answer

I'm not sure what a seral community is but seral progression is the move from one sere to another. A sere being a plant succession such as a Hydrosere (a succesion developed on a freshwater wetland - eg Sweetmere in Shropshire)  . A seral stage is a stage within a sere.

The climatic climax vegetation is a vegatation that evolves if its not disturbed by human activity or tectonic processes. If this vegetation is reached it is called a climatic climax community  which is the final stage of plant succession. The vegetation is in balance with the environment.

Hope this isn't too confusing

Enjoy
