A-Level choices helpWatch
I really want to do all the subjects I've chosen, but realising all of them are essay based, I'm not sure if I can handle it all! Whenever I tell people my choices it seems like I've merrily told them I'm about to dig my own grave. Is it too much??
2) English lit is a subject everyone says is VERY hard..i'm predicted an A at the moment, but I'm considering changing it to history where I'm predicted A* for GCSE? Could anyone tell me how these subjects are like and which ones possibly better? Should I swap lit for history?
P.s I'm hoping to do politics at uni.
Thanks for the help!!
My friend is doing all essay based subjects (history, psychology, English and RS) and I'm not sure how she copes but it's apparently doable. If you enjoy writing essays, arguing your point and etc, then go for it.
tip for a level - actually work hard through the entire year, otherwise you'll **** up your exams, like whats happening to me right now, and ****ing up AS exams makes A2 life even harder. ugh
Based on conversations with him (and how much I've seen him in the pub during the lead up to coursework deadlines ) this month, English was a lot harder than history and he got really stressed doing both,
Personally I love History, and chose it over English because I was predicted a higher gcse grade and I enjoyed it a lot more,
Best decision I made!
History is great, don't know what exam board etc. you're doing, but for me in A2 half of it is your own enquiry into any part of history,which was great, and the AS is actually not too big a leap from GCSE(unlike AS/A2 Maths *shudder* )
and there's a hell of a lot less required reading outside of lessons than in English from what I've seen.
Both subjects require similar skills, and both are doable, you must surely have a preference? go for what you most enjoy, it will help keep you sane over the two years haha
Hope I've helped, Good luck
good luck with your choices
