Biology
Psychology (it's not well known that it incorporates aspects from Biology and Sociology)
History
Sociology (apparently really easy)


Media Studies (I've done a BTEC, learned way more from it than what my friend doing A-Level did)





Music (why is this even an A-Level?)

I know right. Who needs cells when you've got Iggy?



Biology is respected by universities, especially since it is a science. But Music A Level is really hard and is a niche subject. Plus people forget that there are lot of drama/music/dance unis that take those A Levels very seriously. You can study hard and do well in science, but you got to work hard as well as a have talent when it comes to an art subject.

.
I like the way you think... However Music would perhaps come 2nd or 3rd. The reason why I say this is because people who usually take Music has learned to play their instrument and they can read sheets of music from a very early age.

Yes we both have been learning how to read a book and know our timetables from day one. However, these are the skills that we need, whereas Music is more like a hobby. You can perfect a skill, but not an ability. You need natural ability for maths and English. (imo)

From talking to people from universities...

Biology/History (depending on what you want to do next - arts or sciences)
Music
Psychology
Sociology
Media Studies

But it really depends on the person and also what career you are hoping to pursue.

Music is very well regarded.

Most of those subjects would be fine to take as AS's and A2's

Why is everyone putting music so far down on their list? They clearly do not know anything about music A level. It is considered one of the top A levels.

The best A levels are the sciences, languages, maths, history, geography, english and music (probably left something out).

Basically, Biology, History and Music - top (A list A levels)

Then psychology and sociology (B list A levels)

Then media studies (C list A levels).

In the same way people try to make it out like taking a subject from a B list for AS/A2 will mean they are destined for 0 offers.

Further maths is greater than everything. Mandarin is hard but is subjective, cos I could be a bilingual mandarin speaker. Then it's easy.

Sociology isn't a doss, neither is Media tbh.

I remember discussing how rihanna was portrayed as a sexual object in Media studies gcse, and analysed it in such depth. And discussed the society surrounding it all

I can imagine it gets Harder at a Level

Are emotions natural or a social construct, I mean how deep is that

I know it is so stupid. There are lots of subjects people just say are rubbish without understanding them at all...so annoying.

Put these 6 A-Levels in order from most respected to least respected:

Psychology
Biology
Sociology
History
Media Studies
Music
Biology/History (interchangeable depending on what subject you are applying for)
All of the others are pretty much in the same vein.
