I'm not elitist in the slightest, but if I compare my physics work to my friend's travel and tourism work, it doesn't even come close...
I remember looking at a travel and tourism past paper with one of my friends who studied it. Sure one of the questions featured a photo of a hotel and asked 'Name two things that this hotel has to attract customers?' (6 marks) and 'What is an internal flight?'
OCR ICT maybe easy but the coursework is a pain. For example, you believe you completed everything the coursework asks you for BUT in the mark scheme they make something up just to make you lose a mark...or maybe several...
It's like telling a cleaner "oh you missed a spot" with a big grin in your face
besides that yeah its easy as long as you have a logical mind.
I know that any BTECs aren't respected by unis and subjects on top unis blacklists include; media, film studies + anything with studies in the name, sociology, travel & tourism, communication & culture, health & social . . .
Here's a full list of the least respected A-Levels:
Archaeology (Arch & Anth) Art & Design (Arts) Business Studies (Economics) Computing (Computer Science) Design & Technology (Architecture) Drama/Theatre Studies (Arts) Electronics (Engineering) English Language (Arts) Film Studies (Arts) Government & Politics (Arts) Law (Land Economy & Law) Media Studies (Arts) Psychology (Arts) Sociology (Arts) Accounting Applied Science Citizenship Communication Studies Critical Thinking Dance Environmental Science General Studies Health & Social Care Home Economics ICT Leisure Studies Music Technology Performance Studies Performing Arts Perspectives on Science Photography Physical Education Science Science for Public Understanding Sports Studies Travel & Tourism World Development
OP you were better of asking which subjects are respected as opposed to 'respected and easiest'. Now you've got a bunch of subjective answers about the difficulty of many subjects by people who have never even taken them...
and the least respected subjects have been listed by several people on here, but you're better of going to a website of a good uni and having a look yourself

I do physics too, and I do much less work outside of lessons than people doing subjects like media studies, just sayin'.
So did I at AS, wasted nearly a week on revising it alone, and I only managed to scrape a C but I hear the films for media study coursework take a fairly long time to make too, i'm sure the theory of media studies is more quicker and easier to grasp than say physics
There's a blacklist on the LSE website which is pretty useful
I've never heard of Politics not being respectable before though. LSE and Cambridge both recommend it for politics related courses. Well, they both say it's useful anyway so I'm fairly sure other universities also regard it as respectable. If you were doing 3 sciences and a random essay based fourth history or English might be preferable but I wouldn't go as far as to say that politics wasn't respected.
This thread is pointless, I wouldn't find ICT easy at all. Whereas someone else would be able to breeze right through it. What are you actually asking OP? What is easier? Or what is most respected? And for what course?
