I allready have completed two A lever subjects, but I want to bump up my tariff points so therefore I am spending an extra year in college. Can anyone reccommend me 4 easy As level subjects? I don't mind if they are looked down upon or are soft subjects. Thanks in advanced.

General studies and critical thinking are 2 that I know of.

There may also be business studies and maybe economics? DOn't take my word on economics though, might actually be proper subject, just unsure about it

Buuut, if they are looked down upon, most likely they won't even be taken therefore it'll just be a waste.

EDIT: Maybe not economics, but maybe ICT?

What? neg rep? :| that's a bit uncalled for, just stating the blacklisted subjects, or some, maybe wrong on economics, I'll admit that.


EDIT 2: Media studies also?


Wow, I sure must have tipped off a few people.

I wonder if this link is a bit relevant: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/arti...s-A-level.html

...she said with a sarcastic grin.

(Disclaimer: I've not taken any of these subjects so I wouldn't know. Just for the lulz.)

although you'd be "bumping up" your ucas points, won't the university see exactly what you've done to bump them up?

Actually, it doesn't - if you'd actually read the link, you'd know it's an a-level equivalent (so a Level 3 qualification) designed to help those who want a specific career with a specific firm. I'd imagine it's actually very useful if you really want to work for McDonald's.

...?

I stand by what I said - it's not like Edexcel are now running McDonald's Studies or something. It sounds far more like a specialist qualification which the company themselves have thought up.

I'm not advocating that everyone goes and works for McDonald's, but my point is that if you did happen to want to work for them, it would probably be useful and allow you to rise up the ranks of the company faster or give you a leg up with applications or something - it's not really aiming to be an academic option, so shouldn't be maligned as a failed example of such
