    Media. I don't see how Art is considered easy or 'soft', if you can't draw/paint whatever, you're pretty f*cked >_<

    By no means is it film. I took both film studies and english literature at a-level and they were essentially synonymous, except film actually required some creative flair to do well.

    I would have opted for that over A-levels if picnicking was part of the assessed coursework.

    Well, the coursework involves you going down to the woods today and noting down how surprised you were to find picnicking teddy bears there. There's an optional applied picnicking module, but I don't think the teachers are qualified to teach that at my college.

    I don't think law and politics are, but that's from friends taking them not myself ... people I know who take media say it's a complete doss!
    It's not on the list but people say history of art is a soft subject and I think it's one of the hardest to get a good grade in.

    This is, as it always is, a pointless question if you're looking for a 'true' answer, as I doubt anyone has taken an A Level in all of those subjects so nobody can ever really be a fair judge...

    I'd just like to stick up for Media Studies a bit, as the majority of people that **** it off as soft haven't ever actually taken it (excusing TWYears)...

    Surely you could say the same for media - if you can't direct you're pretty f*cked too!

    Anyone can put together some sort of film and 'direct'. I've seen people get Bs and As and their videos are good fun but honestly they're such a joke.

    Being good at drawing/painting/sculpting has to be a real talent along with a lot of dedication.


    Btw I speak as someone who does neither of these subjects so it's just an outside viewpoint.

    Well I speak as someone who did do these subjects and I can say with some confidence that you do not need to draw, paint or sculpt to get an A at Art.

    I was the only person in my entire year at A level who did realism and painting. Everyone else did 'installations' or 'found art' or collages. No talent or hard work required - just need an ability to bluff a thousand words about what it 'represents'.

    Ahh well I was under the assumption it was similar to GCSE which requires a very long drawing/painting/sculpting exam.
