    So basically, every single subject to ever exist has been said by people that don't actually take the subject.

    I think so. At the end of the day it's different for everyone so stop putting other people down about their subjects

    Sociology....ugh, I hate it! It's so stupid, boring, and pretty much repeats itself. Currently doing it as an A2, and I hate it even more. Can't wait to finish with it forever and ever!

    Really? I'm taking both Politics and History ATM and can tell you now that they are hardly similar.

    Politics AS is a joke. There are two papers, unit 1 and unit 2. Unit 1 has practically gcse material (I'd expect EVERYONE to know what policies labour and conservatives stand for before they vote for example), not to mention you only have to answer 2 questions in the paper out of four topics (meaning you could blast through half the year on that unit). The boundaries are so low that sometimes it can be 60/80 for 100 UMS. As someone who "was" passionate about Politics before starting I think the course is incredibly patronising and designed for those who know absolutely nothing about Politics (which everyone should anyway). Unit 2 perhaps is a bit harder but even still it's daft to say it is hard compared to other subjects like maths etc.

    A2 might be different, but that's my experience so far on the course. I might as well be twiddling my thumbs. If I could turn back the clock I wish I'd picked Physics or something actually useful.

    I've seen some of the Citizenship stuff and personally feel it should become a compulsory gcse.

    It is a gcse ... but an A level exists too which most unis would accept unlike general studies and critical thinking

    ICT, what a joke. Or maybe it started off well and the teaching was a joke, on the other hand?

    In terms of modules, C1 is an ABSOLUTE joke. C2 is also a bit (they're both extremely easy). CH1 is also a bit of a joke.

    "The man was wearing a coat"

    Teacher: The man is selfish and self-obsessed and only looks out for himself. The coat is a metaphor for a shield of his dark soul.

    Author: It was ****ing raining so he wore a coat.
    its nothing like that- its incredibly hard to do really well as you have to pander to a very specific mark scheme. I did english lit biology and history and english was by far the hardest

    I hope the maths examiners wake up from their little bubbles and toughen up the papers and actually design questions to make us have to use our brains and think!

    To be fair that's a good example of the ridiculously tenuous inferences that they want from you in English Literature if you wanna get marks.
