    There are much easier ways than A levels to get into university.
    yeah, screwing the admissions tutor, for a start.

    BMAT? Am I going crazy - isn't that the medical admissions test? That's supposed to be really hard...?

    "Those that do 4 or 5 A-levels will take easy A-levels"

    In my experience, most of the people who do 4 or 5 pick the traditionally trickier ones, e.g. I did english, economics, maths, f. maths and the (admittedly slightly dossy) I.T.

    "If you can't do maths or a humanities subject, you clearly have no talent."

    at maths or humanities, surely. There's quite a few other areas of human endeavour, you know.

    "People nowadays are opting for A levels like psychology and Socialogy, the so called "easy" subjects. DO MATHS YOU SLACKERS!!"

    It all depends on your talents. I did maths. I got an A. I would have been lucky to pass had I attempted, for example, a foreign language. That doesn't mean I'm thick, it means my talents lie in different areas to those of other people, and the same applies vice versa.

    Yep, well said. I think more people are doing 4 A-levels now than under the old system, but they are certainly not all going for easy options.

    I did Biology, Chemistry, Maths and German. Don't think you could call any of them dossy, although I did find German ridiculously easy compared with the old syllabuses I had to practise on.
