Currently, i am in year 11, unfortunately im very lazy and want to get by with the bare minimum. I want to do Classics, maybe maths, chemistry. But apparently you have to do alot of work in those two. ,my school advise 5 AS and 4 A level. Ive heard that Philosophy, socio, maths, business critical thinking are dosses, can i have so advise on which ones to choose with require the least amount of work. I am afraid to say that i havent worked hard in years and dont plan to.
My predicted grades are:
English Language: A
English lIT: A*
Classical civ: A*
Latin: A* (taken last year)
History:B(taken last year) retake
There's no definite way to 'rank' subjects by difficulty - much of it depends on personal aptitue in a given subject. I'd have to say though, if you don't plan to work to any great extent when taking your A-Levels, I'd question why you're planning taking them in the first place. You don't *have* to stay on beyond your GCSE year, so if you do so, it should be because you *want* to!
Well I can assure you none of the ones you mentioned are dosses, except maybe critical thinking but I have no experience and don't know anyone who has taken it so I can't tell you. But they are all hard guaranteed. But I don't see why you are being forced into this and not standing up for yourself if you plan on dossing through it.
The 'easiest' are usually the least respected. With those grades you should be trying harder, saying that you're 'unfortunately' lazy is really immature :/ Why don't you want to try harder?? You're parents shouldn't be a part of it, for any A-levels you've got to work hard and you won't do well if you're not self motivated.
general studies in my opinion is pretty easy, but considering i dont take it im not really in any position to judge how difficult it is lol
If you go in with that attitude you'll fail, no matter what subjects you do.
I'm not going to comment on your attitude, others seem to have that pretty much covered, but from experience, I found Latin GCSE to be a huge amount of work, and in comparison AS level felt fairly easy, and a lot more satisfying, so probably go for that.
Also, I'm doing further maths, and though I find it unspeakably hard, I think if I were doing single maths, and as such doing half the work in the same amount of time, it'd be really easy, for me at least.
Class civ/ English lit/ any of those sort are not easy unless you enjoy reading a lot. If you do, then a lot of the work is fun, hence "easy". If you don't really enjoy reading big books by dead people, please give them a miss.
don't bother doing A levels and get a job.
General Studies. But then again I got a D at AS level.
You don't have to do A levels for the sake of it. You might enjoy an apprenticeship or something more. With the attitude you have at the moment you might as well not bother since you will fail anyway. You should be taking subjects because you enjoy them, not because they're easy.
There is no need to do 4 A levels, no uni will look at all 4, just 3, all that extra work for no reason, AS is largish step up from GCSE, although you have done good so far you need to put the work in, why not put the work in, for a few years, and get good grades?
