    I am currently a full time art and design student at college, studying at Level 2 (Equivalent to GCSE's). I am looking to do Foundation art and design next year, but have to do atleast one A level / level 3 equivalent by the end of the year in order to apply. My portfolio has been confirmed as foundation level, but I do have to meet the entry requirements.

    I am looking to do a subject that will not require a huge amount of work or academic abilities (not that I am not able, just short of time!) and that is not art, but relates (such as film studies, English or business)

    Please would someone help me out as to what the easiest/least time consuming subject would be? I studied Business at GCSE and received a good grade, so this seems to make the most sense, but would like opinions from current students studying this.

    (Baring in mind it needs to fit around my full time college time table)

    Oh, and I should probably mention that I absolutely suck at math!

    Thank you xxx

    I'm not sure. The A levels that came to mind seem easier I guess but since I haven't done the majority of A level subjects I have no clue whether things like Drama and Film studies are laborious. So wouldn't make a difference if they were easy since you need it to fit around your timetable.

    See if they accept General Studies, it's one of those A levels, where if you go into the exam, and actually try and write intelligent things and can write and construct an essay well, and good at multiple choice then you're bound to do well and best part, its all really done on the spot, no preparation needed in terms of learning material and revision.
