    Lol at everyone mentioning the Trinity List. :p:

    But yes, it is very well respected, being a solidly academic subject with high content and essays and so on.

    I take Religious Studies, and it's one of my best subjects - and it's super-interesting. Do you know what board/options you will be offered?

    It is mentioned as it is known to be the most stringent list, so if it is considered good on there then the logical inference is that it will be so on all other lists of merit =D

    Also, TY for the rep ^^

    I do not disagree! It just tickled me in an odd section of my sense of humour.

    And you're most welcome.

    Of course it is. It was one of the earliest exams at that time called Scriptures or some such along with Maths, Chemistry, Physics, Biology, French, Russian, Italian, Spanish, German, Latin, Greek, History, English Literature, English Language, Woodwork, Medalwork, Domestic Science, Music, Art, and General Paper and some that are no longer given for example Zoology, Botany, Needlework, Cookery, and Sewing and maybe a few others.

    Respected by whom?
    As far as university goes, it seems like a perfectly respectable A-Level to have - nobody's going to refuse to offer you a place, purely because you have an R.E. A-Level (assuming that you are taking all the required A-Levels for the course).
    But maybe the average person on the street might be a little more impressed if you told them you were taking Further Maths or something.
