Hello TSRers ^_^
I have to choose my A Levels in a few months.
I'm a bit stuck on what to choose to be honest.
At university, I want to study French and Spanish, so, of course, I will study both of those at A Level.
However, I also have to pick 2 others.
For me, grades isn't much of an issue. I am predicted an A or an A* in all of my subjects for GCSE, so more than anything, it's a case of which subjects would I do best in and would I enjoy the most?
My main concern is coursework! I really don't like it, I find it difficult to get motivated to complete it, and I definitely prefer exams.
Out of the following subjects, which (in your opinion):
a) is the hardest to achieve an A in
b) is the easiest to achieve an A in
c) involves the most coursework
d) involves the least coursework
Government and Politics
English Lit & Lang
Obviously it'll be a matter of opinion, but I just want to know what you think, and also if you've heard from any friends or know from personal experience if there are any subjects to avoid taking?
Thank you! ^_^

Maths is definitely the easiest to achieve an A in, IF you are good at Maths. - that sounds kind of obvious, but maths papers are very formulaic and repetitive, if you know you are a strong Mathematician, maths will almost certainly get you an A - also there's no coursework (at least there wasn't on my Edexcel syllabus anyway)
History is also fairly easy to achieve an A in but it is almost 100% course work at A2 (that's on the OCR syllabus), so that might not be for you. If you were thinking of only doing it to AS though, AS is all exams.
I'm afraid I don't really know a lot about the other courses, other than the fact getting a B in English Literature is apparently easy, but an A is really hard.
