    Sociology, you could learn the course in about 2 months. So easy. I do love it though

    I say theres no easy subject.
    This would be because if your good at something you probably have the skills.
    Talent for me is not be gifted but working hard and beleiving in something you like and is your ambition.
    So theres no easy A-Level.

    I did English language and ended up with 100% in all the exams and half the coursework. I don't say that to brag of my brilliance, but as evidence that it's really not that difficult. You're right in what you say about sciences though; I did biology and it was almost the death of me.
    seriously!!!!! you lot are making me feel sad!!!:confused: i cant beleve i chose that subject. my teacher said it better that lit.

    and i'm actually better at literature!
    well done btw with the 100% im dying with it. c.w really hard forme. how did you do it?

    Oh God, don't let me make you feel bad about it :| I think English language is a wierd one, and it took a while for it to click with me how you're supposed to do it. I don't think that the teachers really can explain it well.

    I think that lit. is a lot more straightforward, and you know what's expected of you, but it's harder in the sense that it's not just something which can click, it's a constant challenge.

    If you have any questions you reckon I could help you with feel free to PM me. But honestly, I'm not an expert, I just got lucky. I think if I were doing language rather than lit. at uni. I'd crumble :P

    I was ill around GCSE time and had left school a month before. I badgered doctors and eventually was allowed to sit my GCSEs at home. I got an A* in language but an A in lit. It wasn't until I got to college that anyone was really impressed with the stuff I could do in English lit.

    I suppose the fact that I got better GCSE grades in subjects I wasn't even good at proves that exams aren't always a good measure of intelligence or skill.

    Now I'm at university I certainly don't get 100%s. I get your average range of good, reasonable and bad marks.

    I reckon you're probably being too hard on yourself with the way you're thinking about how you're doing in the language A level. From the fact that you got an A at GCSE level I'd imagine that you're probably doing fine now.

    Jesus :| Three years. I found being away for that month hard. I was very lucky in that I had the summer after that, and I recovered enough to go to college. Three years though, that must have been awful. You should be really proud that you got GCSEs and got to college.

    I didn't! I did 'To Kill a Mockingbird', but I do love that book :]

    We need to know why you need an easy A Level, and which uni (I assume this is why) you're wanting points for. Some allow GS/CT, others don't.. but if yours does, then it's certainly worth a try!
    Other than that, it depends what you're good at! For example someone who was fluent in Spanish would find that easy, but would find German hard.. so we can't tell what YOU'D find easy without knowing you inside out.. which we don't. Hope some of that babble helped a little bit.

    English Literature: 551/600 with no preparation whatsoever – I even wrote the A2 coursework from scratch on the day it was due. Hopefully examiners today aren't quite as susceptible to grandiloquent nonsense as they were in 2005.

    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?
    LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO OOOOL.
    Its a shame most people think that way. Makes me want to smash my head against my ****ing meter thick sketchbook.

    Apparently R.E., lots of people consider Sociology to be a doss but it's really not as easy as people make it out to be.
    Sociology is fairly easy as long as you're intelligent enough to be able to make it so. I did one unit of it, had pretty poor attendance and did little to no work for it. Did the exam, without much prep and got 98% or something.
