Is LCVP worth it?

The teachers explained it as basically like a glorified TY with a class only about 2-3 times a week. My friends and I joked about it but I'm wondering if it's worth even considering?

my teachers said it was suited towards students who know they won't get 500 points in the LC

Link Modules is a great subject, in the first year you get a chance to do Work Experience/Placement which is alway good on your CV. The programme also focuses on the world of work, prepares you for the world outside and gives you insights how to get jobs. The portoflio work completed early in year 2, gives you skills how to do document layouts, such as reports, projects, the :C points gained are also handy for the CAO or Further Education Course application.

i wouldn't do it if you are planning on high points since you can only get 66 points

I'm doing it now as I'm doing two ordinary subjects, I only have two classes of it a week and its good to boost up your points if you're doing ordinary subjects. If you are bad at computers I would'nt do it though :)

Yeah I ended up doing it, not beacuse I really wanted to or beacuse of points, it's 'cause we were given a choice, go for religion class or LCVP, and we're not even gonna do a religion test so..... I have it on a Monday and a Friday, it's not bad.

So doing lcvp gives you extra points?

It doesn’t give you any extra points. It’s treated as a normal subject so if it’s not in your top six, it’s not counted. If anything it gives you less points as the maximum points you can get in it is 66
