    Hello everyone! 1)So I was thinking of what a levels i should get and I thought about getting physics, chemistry, Maths(statistics) and economics. My questions is , are they hard subjects? Will I be able to go outside ? ;')

    2)Also i love the idea of taking Media studies as a relaxing subject; so i can focus more on my other 3. But is it actually an easy subject? Also i did some research and some universities do not accept it! What should i do? In total i will have to choose 4 a levels , if its ideal to take Media studies which a level do you suggest me getting rid of it?

    Thank you!

    Media is mainly coursework so for revision it is fairly light ( so a friend says)
    I do physics and chemistry, with physics it is a hard subject if you dont understand the basics and for chemistry i find it very hard but i think that is to do with me finding it very boring

    I do Physics, Maths, and Media. Most universities should accept Media (although it will depend on what subject you are going to apply for). It is an easy subject, and you can get a good grade simply by being in a group with someone who can edit. Maths is easy if you enjoy it. Same with Physics, although some people find it very hard, especially at A2. Everyone's different!

    Sounds like a good set of A levels. They may be hard, but should allow you to go 'outside', and if you enjoy them they should be good. Media would be a complete contrast, if you really enjoy, then by all means go for it, but otherwise I would suggest focusing on the other subjects. There will probably be a lot of content in them, so it's probably not best to overload, especially if you found universities that don't consider it. Good luck on your decision
