    Stupid question given how there is no answer as it is all subjective.
    What's the easiest A-level to learn in a short period of time? And how many days/weeks approximately?
    How is this stupid? I know that it is relative to the persona, since for some people math is basic reasoning and very easy while for other they have to struggle to understand. But my point was "in a short time".
    I could say that :

    -EASY TO LEARN IN A SHORT PERIOD OF TIME:
    accounting, business studies, communication studies, critical thinking, English language, general studies and many more.

    I would have thought Chemistry or History wouldn't take more than a couple of weeks to learn.
    Isnt chemistry known as one of the toughest?

    As a person who did both the first two, your wrong.
    There were people in my class , particularly in accounting, who after the whole first year (AS) could not understand the basic concepts, and i know for a fact that my school wasn't exactly an outlier for this.

    Same with business, some people even at the end of a-level could not write their essays in the necessary way and depth needed for the a-level, or could not fit together terms from different parts of the modules together etc

    Nobody's done all the A-levels on TSR so how can they possibly say which is the easiest?

    But it is relatively easier than other a-level subjects, no?

    I know that Math IB HL is harder than Math Studies, but I have never studied the International Baccalaureate.

    Critical Thinking - can do the AS course within a couple of weeks I'm guessing.

    However, it counts for sh**-all when applying to universities, so it is a waste of time in my opinion.

    General Studies has to be the easiest. Critical Thinking requires a bit of learning of specialistic vocab, but it's not too hard. Failing that.........Art. If you can draw?

    I don't know? I have only done four, like most people, i cannot comment.
    Probably statistics out there that say some how what the easiest ones are. I found business easy, i found my friends economics work easy, i found accounting easy... those are the areas i excel in. I found maths and physics incredibly hard.. those are the areas i'm bad in.

    No reason to discuss it, every single person is different. There will be people who can ace maths with an A* but don't have the capability to do anywhere near as well in business. etc.

    I didnt say "the easiest", I said "the easiest to learn in a short period of time".

    English language is not respected by some universities.
    English Literature or English Language and Literature are, being the former the most respected.
