I found Physics quite easy when I did it, got an A with very little work. To me it seemed that if you did Maths, an A in Physics was just an added bonus.
Pretty much the same for my History grade, I've written 2 essays in 2 years and am lokking at a B at A2 (the A is out of reach but...ohh well)!!! :rolleyes:

You are not quite everyone I am afraid you still count as only one person in my informal census.

I still maintain economics A-level is easier than physics.

well maybe for you... but for a level economics becomes more about englishy skills... and with the essays in the sypnoptic; imo its harder than physics... so far all my physics modules (4/4) have been As but in my economics modules i got only 3/5 As in the modules i have done so far... I put roughly equal effort into both so economics is harder for me

Hmm, my economics marks were all higher than my physics marks, despite me putting in more effort into physics than economics. however this is AS so I stand to be corrected. Actually as far as homwork's concerned it's that relationship as well...

In my opinion I feel that these are respected subjects (not in order):

Mathematics
Further Mathematics
Physics
Chemistry
Biology
English Literature
French
History
Geography
Computing
Economics

Someone in this thread said that history is a mickey mouse subject - That is the most weird/stupid idea ever, it's extremely well respected!

i suppose... with different examining boards... its not really easy to make a comparison like this... i do ocr economics... sypnoptic was a dead hard... only needed 61% in it for an A (i should have retaken other eco exams some ppl only needed 47% in it!!!) but i dont think ill make it
edexcel physics, IMO has been kind of piss easy so far... well sypnoptic is a bit challenging... but other than that the other 5 modules are like a walk through the park

What about your Maths marks, how do they compare?

glad someone finally quoted that report here. that isnt the only study to have found that media studies has the highest employability/further studies rate over all subjects (and that is employed in graduate fields), which i think is impressive.

(this thread is really funny to read - theres so much pretentious garbage in it. doing physics doesnt make you intelligent, and it certainly doesnt make you an intersting person. long live general studies!!!)

Vocational, non-university courses have very good employment rates. Media studies shouldn't necessarily be a degree course.

Why not? How does one determine what should/n't be a degree course?

A lot of people try to tell me music is a mickey mouse subject. That really annoys me. I do 4 A-levels (English literature, French, music and law) and music is the most difficult of the lot. The essay part of the A-level involves just as much written work as any of my other subjects, and then there's the aural, composition and practical. The aural requires high levels of concentration and the ability to pick out the smallest things in the middle of a huge, complex piece of music, as well as being able to immediately say what key it starts in, what key it goes into etc. Compositional techniques are much more like a science than an art, or perhaps a language, because there are so many rules you have to follow and if you get it wrong the piece doesn't work. On top of that.....think how many hours you spend on a piece of coursework worth 30%. You may think you spend a long time on it, but compare that to an hour a day for 8 or 9 months working on your final performance (which lasts 20 minutes and you get one chance to get it right), other subjects seem trivial in terms of effort. In addition to all that, music is actually the only subject which uses both sides of your brain.

So why do people call it a mickey mouse subject?

Answer: because they are retards and don't have a clue what they are talking about.

Unfortunately, so are some admissions tutors.

Er i disagree, I think they call it MM because they are not doing it.

Have you noticed most people say "I'm taking .............. , and it's not a MM subject". So really any subject you are not personally taking is MM.
