    Why is this?
    People tell me that it's just a branch of chemistry which over the years has strangely developed to stand as a science of its own so people argue it 'isn't a real science' , also the big bang theory regularly take the Mick out of engineering and geology treating them as lesser than physics, basically geology has been framed the be something that it's not, nevertheless it is certainly and important area of study, its the study of our earth's crust and landscape for goodness sake

    I mean I'm pretty biased since that's what I'm studying but I can't help but think that this reputation is a bit unfair ): It probably doesn't help that most people don't actually get what geology is.

    I've already explained. In short as a subject, I love geography, and the study of the human and physical world.

    But the A Level is utter tripe

    Far too easy to get 100%

    Later on you might realise that A-level maths is easy, further maths is comparable to others, maybe a little harder. Third A-level is very difficult.

    Media studies is pathetic. I study it and we have a production unit in each year and this year I've been left to do everything. My group didn't even do anything. I skipped many history lessons for the sake of being available to film when actors are free. Once production is over we have an evaluation. Others in the group lied saying they did work and ended up getting an A and I got C for the production despite doing all the editing, being director, camera man (spent £600 on 600d), found actors... I'm so angry. Can anyone tell me what more I could have done to get an A? Should i have done nothing like the others and exaggerate my role in report? This is a subject that will never be fair. Its definitely a Mickey mouse alevel.

    If you are naturally good at maths, then yes, its easy, but if your not, then its quite hard.
    I tried doing it myself when i did my a-levels- never again.

    Pseudo-sciences in general. Geography A-level I've heard is very much like the GCSE. And above all else: English Lit and Lang, the course where I got to write two stories for coursework, and some of the easiest exam questions to whizz through.

    English Literature.

    "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.
    You're insulting the author (were you aware that authors put a lot of time and thought into their craft?), those who teach English, and anyone who has ever chosen to follow the pursuit of literary scholarship. Like... what a reductive and ridiculous post. If English isn't your forte, fine. It's not for everyone. It's not acceptable, however, to write off something that you can't grasp or can't appreciate as being a "joke".

    I'm not insulting the author. I'm insulting the study of the subject, like almost every other post in this thread. There are many aspects to English Literature that do not include making interpretations of single sentences, but rather themes or character development as a whole. I personally found it a dull subject and I was highlighting a small humorous part of the study to fit this thread.

    Psychology??

    Posted from TSR Mobile
    Psychology is NOT A JOKE! It's a social science based on scientific research. And it's actually quite hard - it's rated as one of the hardest subjects at A-level.
