How many of you thoroughly enjoy all of your A-levels? Watch
I am studying English Literature, Film Studies, History and Sociology, all of which sum up my interests really. For English I have awesome books (Gatsby and The Kite Runner), for history I have killer periods to study (Russia and India), I am an avid film fan and so Film Studies is perfect for me, and I find the premise of sociology very interesting as it contains applied economics and political science. All my subjects are essay-based which is great as I like crafting arguments and I like developing my own interpretations.
I enjoy the acquisition of skills and knowledge in fields I find interesting and so I am fairly confident in my subject selection. I am prioritising enjoyment over respectability as I don't want to commit one/two years of study to a field or discipline which doesn't interest me.
I'm not naive in thinking that A-levels will be a breeze by any means, and there's no telling how much I'll enjoy the social side of college, but I'd like to think that enjoyment of my studies will help smooth the process. So back to the title, how many of you enjoy studying ALL of your A-levels?

naa, i joke. but seriously, english lit, chemistry, biology and anthro can kiss my black BLEEP.
but i disliked biology lots, but spending 2/3 of my working time doing something i enjoyed, and 1/6 of my other time doing work that i didnt enjoy ( the other 1/6 was talking to my biology friend, who also disliked the subject :P ) wasnt that bad
i also think a levels are hard to beggin with but by the end, it becomes easy to spend a lot of time doing the work
EDIT: also did phyics as. the teacher did computer mathmatics or something - needless to say, he was ****, and tbh, he was **** at maths, with about 90% of the time failing to rearange eqations ect or just genraly saying incorect things, but otherwise i think i would have enjoyed that subject
English Literature is hit and miss for me - if I'm on a text I enjoy, it's amazing. Unfortunately, I'm quite selective with my texts.
Government & Politics is generally interesting, but it depends on who teaches me. I have one godawful teacher, and one brilliant one.
Sociology is rather dull to be honest. I think I'll be dropping it.
In general I enjoyed learning my subjects through the year up until about march when it just became exam orientated - as you'd expect!
Maths, I enjoyed it at AS mainly because it was easier than A2
Enjoyed Economics at the first half of AS but lost motivation towards the end because I didn't like it anymore
In fact, I found maths and physics very easy to learn, probably because I enjoyed them so much! I wish I could say the same for chemistry...but that was still very hard
