    lol, alright english lit is respected and so is history. Both of these are what i class as secondary A levels. Primary A levels are the traditional sciences and languages. secondary are mostly humanties. tertiary are media studies, film studies etc.

    you have 3 secondary and 1 tertiary A level, so i guess it was wrong to say all easy subjects but u arent exactly going to have a hard time with them lol.
    The basic flaw in your argument is putting sciences above humanities. With this you are saying that for e.g a History degree is 'easier' than a Biology degree, and so forth. i think starting a debate on a topic that has been so vastly discussed on TSR is pointless.

    All of my subjects excluding Business Studies are traditional ones, thus their difficulty equals the difficulty of science subjects.

    The sciences are harder than history. If you are taking history along with say maths, chemistry, biology- you are more likely to do better in history. This is down to statistics and empirical evidence
    *Source forthcoming*. They are completely different, if you can't write a coherent essay you will crash and burn in History, English Lit, RS etc.

    Also, History, English Lit, RS, Economics etc are seen by all uni's as top-tier subjects, alongside the sciences.

    if you honestly think geography is in the same category as chemistry, then you are simply deluded lol.

    but there are differences in difficulties in the humanties and sciences, e.g chemistry has the highest fail rate out of any A level. Why do you think this is? A friend of mine got straight U's in physics maths chemistry, she retook and did new subjects and picked up geography. She has ended up with a B in geography.

    HOW CAN YOU PUT HISTORY AND MEDIA STUDIES CLOSE TOGETHER :confused:

    History is ****ing hard, I swear I'm telling the truth, I got 98 in c1 but a C in history, but revised more for history does that say something? science alevels aren't doss nor are humanities, I'd argue for someone science orientated like me, essay subjects are a pain in the arse and bloody challenging

    ...

    i didnt exactly put them close together, where else would u have me place them? maybe u are just science orientated, lack crativity and essay writing skills thats why u did bad in history. most people i know who did history along with sciences did better in history.

    Go learn french then and do an alevel in it, you've said your not doing well in your exams alone, hence why you're probably placing far too much weight on your own subjects as being difficult for your lack of revision, you clearly haven't got the writing skills for English either

    It varies from person to person. If this works for me, I can't guarantee that it would for you as well. Btw I definitely need breaks because otherwise I get distracted and can't revise properly.
