Which A levels are easiest to do AS and A2 in one year?Watch
I ended up with a D in English Lang after the sixth form had the coursework moderated down.
I don't want to carry on to A2 as a result and think the subject is boring as sin anyway.
So which A level subjects are 'easy' to do in one year starting fresh with AS and A2 content?
Please don't suggest anything maths based as I'm crap.
Photography isn't taught at my sixth form. No way I'm doing A level art. GCSE art was enough work.
If it's practical based then you just have to put in the hours. A lot easier to do in a year.
Do you know (and I mean very well) any language like Spanish, German etc? If yes, then this would be the easiest -and most respected.
Do you know (>>) any classical languages like Latin or Greek? If yes, then this would be doable, but still very difficult. (doing this myself!)
Are you good at maths? Have heard many people doing it in one year and gaining A*s. Of course, you will only do well if you're keen on maths (and only then!).
Psychology, Economics & Government and Politics have been fast-tracked by people, although this depends greatly on how you learn. Economics is the most respected.
You should note that, whatever you choose, it is not going to be easy unless you've got native-like knowledge of a language.
The next one would have to be Religious Studies Edexcel. Unit 1 is basically writing 4 essays on topics you've learnt, unit 2 is one big essay, you study one topic i.e abortion. Unit 3 is identical to unit 1, essays on topics you've studied, and unit 4, you read an extract then answer questions on it. I really loved the course (self taught this too) and got an A. It was the most enjoyable because I picked the topics I was most interested in (instead of religion, I chose the ethics and philosophy sections)
I would recommend these for people self teaching/doing the A level in a year. I left a lot last minute and I'm really please it worked out.
