Rejected petition Get rid of Welsh baccalaureate as a compulsory subject.
the welsh bacc is pointless subject which is forced on all students in wales, it has personally reulted in me droping grades in all other subjects since im forced to concentrate on finishing the vast amount of work and pressure put on to me and others in the Bacc lessons. The welsh bacc should be optional since its useful for some but not others, since alot of universities dont even count it as a real qualification outside of wales.
