    i have put on my college application form: geog, chem, music, media studies[/COLOR]
    but recently ive been thinking alot about changing media to german. i cant say that i love german but it has been enjoyable and after doing the (loads!) of oral prep i found that i actually knew alot of german!!![/COLOR]

    aswel i went into school today for band rehersals (of course ive already left) but lesson 5 was cancelled so i went with my yr10 friend to her lesson which was german!!! the teach had me doing things and she even said that i was good at it.

    i dont really know anyone who has done media

    what are your opinions????
    what would you do???
    german or media studies???

    The ISC published a report on the decline of more 'traditional' subjects such as Science and Maths being taken and proved that there was a 'noticable' .pc increase in those obtaining A at AS/A-Level. The report basically touches upon the notion that newer, more 'modern' subjects, namely: Sociology, Psychology, Media Studies and Business Studies are much less 'thorough', thus, easier than the more traditional subjects (Maths, Science, Latin etc).
    If you want to read more into this, the material can be found at: http://www.isc.co.uk/index.php/403

    I must ask, what are your future plans, academia wise? It strikes me as odd that you would choose Chemistry in combination with Geography, Music and German/Media Studies.

    I don't think they are odd. It is good to chose a wide breadth, especially if you do not know what course you want to do at Uni. I have chosen Chem Maths Ger and Eng Lit, and most people love this combination.

    I'd definitely go for german if you say you're good at it and enjoy it - not only would it be much better for getting into uni, but employers love it if you have qualifications in another language!

    What a levels should i take in order to do architecture?
    I'd probably take maths, art and possibly physics to do architecture, but apart from that you're pretty much free to choose whatever subjects you enjoy the most. As stated above, a language would be very useful and valuable too.

    Id definatly choose German, it is more respected as a qualification and universties adn employers love it if you have a language qualification, with it you will get far more oppurtunities than with media, however media does have its advantages in the ever changing world, but id still go with german!

    I didn't mean to sound confrontational; I just think Chemistry is a tad contemptible without another Science or Maths... But of course, it's perfectly understandable if she is choosing Chemistry entirely based upon her admiration for the subject.

    I am choosing geography for that reason, i think if you enjoy a subject why not take it, adn with a wide variety of qualifications you can take a wide choice of dergrees.

    It would be quite stressful doing 2 practical subjects so I would go with German.

    Ditto. I am choosing Geography because it complements my other AS choices and I have a natural fascination for it.

    Yep, same. Both the Decision Making paper and the Written Paper 4 were elementary. I achieved an A for the coursework, and felt I performed competently in the exam; overall I am expecting a very proficient grade, perhaps, A/A*.

    You're fine. As long as you don't make a pointless thread mocking TSR's reputation system, and pleading for positive rep, you won't be negatively repped! Visit >> http://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/t128187.html
