    No way! There's 3 of us on here doing that then🙈 It is, I agree😂 Why did you decide to do the whole thing by yourself?
    Because I did really poor in chemistry last year and needed 2 sciences at B to get into uni😂 I'm already doing biology so the only other option was Environmental banter because there's no chance I was gonna try physics😂

    I'm glad it wasn't just me who thought that haha! I think a lot of people in my class struggled with it though, so I think it's quite a tough subject in general. Also, the same question never seems to come up twice, so past papers don't really help that much!
    They never had the same question but they had similar things come up, especially with the EIA and green belt, but I would learn the answers they gave then apply them to the next question and it'd wrong😂
    Oh well, hopefully the examinors will be nice 😊

    Oh fair enough! I did biol and chem too but i was also doing pe and german (both of which I dropped after AS) so I needed another subject, I find it quite interesting though and it does seem to cross quite a bit with Biology, which is fortunate😊 What do you plan on doing in uni?

    Hey guys,

    I'm considering taking this as an A level; is it worth taking? Did you find it easy?

    Personally I found Environmental Studies to be one of my most difficult subjects. I found the exam questions and mark schemes to be ambiguous, and since it's not a very common subject, there weren't that many revision resources available (though that might've changed by now as it's been a few years since I did it).

    It can be useful if you're thinking of doing an environment or geography-related degree (though not all universities consider it to be a science subject, so doing it alongside geography or another science is probably best), however it's definitely not a 'doss' subject as some people like to say :rolleyes:

    The spec has changed now and it's now called environmental science so apparently it's a lot harder as they've made it a lot more sciency
