I mean a B in say cookery/media/art would be easier to achieve than a B in maths/science/humanities(well most of them). But in general I think B is a good grade!
No! I beg to differ - art is by no means 'easy' at all.

Ok maybe art shouldn't have been in that category, it is really time consuming from what I've noticed. But you get my drift.

I think it depends on the subject too, I mean a B in say cookery/media/art would be easier to achieve than a B in maths/science/humanities(well most of them).
ART??! Easy to get a B in?? You have to spend most of your free time doing Art if you want an E!

edit:// okay just read the rest of the thread. basically i agree!!

Im doing AQA. American history 1897-1989 is alright but its the British 1815-1890 that I find really tedious. That said, i got 105/105 in British against 97/105 for US. I don't know what's going on there.

Yeah, that periods a bit boring. Pity you're not doing the Russian revolution... lots of fun and very juicy

Art is indeed very difficult from what I hear from others. Also ICT can be considered similar - by no means an academic course, yet everyone that takes it struggles! It is a question of subjectivity really - some people are better suited to certain subjects. Also, just because a subject is less respected, or less 'academic', it does not mean it is easier. There is no way anyone could fast-track ICT and get an A for example, but I bet there are people that could fast-track an A level in Maths and achieve an A, and judging by AQA's statistics, only 7% of candidates achieve a grade A in ICT, compared to 35% of candidates in Maths. Factual evidence > Opinion, yet all you Mathematicians will still tell me that Maths is a harder A level!
