    Explain your motivations for behaving like a knob towards other humans?

    Is it for personal satisfaction or does it tear you up inside but you do it anyway because you feel obliged to spread unhappiness?

    I don't think the RonnieRJ comment was nasty. More a case of being sarcastically on point.

    I find religious studies so difficult therefore from the classes I am taking this year, religious studies is the toughest however I struggled with chemistry since I started high school so I'm assuming I'd fail that a-level if I studied it. 😅

    There's no such thing as 'hard' and 'easy' A Levels - it all comes down to you and what you're good at, and whether or not you'll actually enjoy studying it for the next two years.

    Just a general question, when did they start letting people get A levels in hobbies and pastimes?

    I'd probably do well at English lit and I have asperger's. I was fine at GCSE. I can only guess how I'd perform at A level. Analytical skills can be taught and you can always cheat from the likes of yorknotes.

    I can't imagine Art being easy to cram which is usually what I look at when I consider whether a subject is easy or not.
    Hehe, that's funny what you say about Yorknotes, but true I guess

    Photography isn't the hardest A level, but it's not an easy one, there's more to it than just taking pictures, you learn all the terminology and techniques, how to develop traditional film photos, how to use a dark room, what chemicals to use, a hell of a lot of artist research, a good amount of the course is learning how to use photoshop to a professional standard, it's quite in depth and can land you a creative job in a lot of industries (advertising, journalism, event photography etc.)

    Oh well, perhaps doing photography instead of maths was a good choice for that user. :lol:

    I've heard Biology is ridiculously hard and Photography has so so so much work. However my friend takes both and she loves it. As long as you're willing to put the effort in and find an interest in both of them you should be fine

    To be honest I think all a-levels are hard, it just depends on your combination of subjects that overall decides whether you find them hard or not. I take English Literature, English Language, History and Theatre Studies, which is quite a good combination.

    I think the best would be a science, maths, an art of some sort, and english or a language.

    History and science tend to have HUGE amounts of content to learn. English Literature involves LOADS of wider reading which is hard if you don't know where to look and loads of essays set. English Language I think is probably the easiest out of my subjects, but you do need to learn a lot of terms.

    It's all such a big step up from GCSE i don't think there is just one a-level that is hard.

    I'm ok at maths and I'm doing further maths as an IGCSE but I don't think I could handle it at a-level
    Further maths in A level is easier than core in my opinion and more fun

    No, I mean like Photography. Which you very well knew. English literature and Music in an academic sense are not hobbies, photography A level looking at the specification is a joke of a qualification.

    I seriously doubt you use Photoshop to professional standard. I've looked at some A level photography material in the past hour, it isn't exactly a ringing endorsement for the UK education system that this is considered A level.

    Oh I insist, please do.

    Of course the difficulty of an A level is subjective, but there is often an element of difficulty to every course. I know first hand that photography is NOT as cut and dry as people seem to think, in my personal opinion, it's almost as hard going as an Art A level, which is very often listed as one of the tougher A levels out there.
