Do you do maths?(Original post by Abstract_Prism)
Easiest is Maths by far, 50% of students get an A or above nationally.
Also is that statistic correct? Because I know a lot of people who didn't get an A in AS maths

Sociology. Loads of people in my school who do it say they get an A with their eyes closed.

So what you're saying is that Maths students are naturally of a higher caliber and work at a higher proficiency, than students of any other subject. That students who take Maths are naturally better at Maths.
That's ridiculous, and you can look at all the other subjects to prove it.
English students would then be naturally proficient in English. Psychology students would naturally proficient in Psychology, right? Etc.
Then why don't these subjects get stats like Maths? Your logic is flawed, because if what you're saying is true, then every subject would get high numbers of students getting top grades, like Maths. But this doesn't happen.
Because the only reason why so many people get top grades in Maths is because it is an easy subject to get a top grade in. This is by virtue of the subject, not because somehow Maths students are more proficient in their subject than students of any other subject. Do you realise how ridiculous and elitist that sounds?
I think another thing to consider is that maths is a really hated subject. Don't you remember in Secondary school how may complained about how much they hated maths? So only those who really enjoyed maths would continue it on at A level, and those who enjoyed would've typically done better at GCSE and been able to do it at A level.Last edited by ajay1998; 02-09-2016 at 00:05.

Nope, by my reasoning you wouldn't have to do every subject by every exam board, just read what people who have done them say about them (which you aren't doing).
The reason my bro gave was that it was harder, and I have no reason to believe he'd lie. The fact he's at Oxford doesn't make his opinion any more valid, it just shows he's a clever cookie, who got straight A*s at GCSE (12), 4 As at AS level, 2A*s and an A at A Level. In other words, the only subject he ever dropped a grade in was Philosophy (AQA) A Level. Because he found it hard. This doesn't sound like the easiest A Level. As a historian I'd have hoped your judgement would be a little more sound, I dread to think what your conclusions will look like.
What college are you going to?
Conclusions tend to suffer during the summer as I rewind and relax
Somerville college, are you looking to apply for Oxford too?
