    Sounds like a good combo. Any plans as to what you want to do at uni yet?

    Are you sure you wish to do sociology? It isn't very recognised or respected as a subject at A level (I don't think so).

    I don't think he should have too much trouble. The problem with 'less respected subjects' only really arises when people do more than one of them. The three other subjects he's chosen seem fine and there is no point in taking, say, a science subject if you have no interest in that area/ arn't very good at it.

    If you are seriously considering some form of a Religious Studies course, then you might want to look at the philosophy A-level. A very religion-orientated subject and gets your brain thinking well. Thoroughly recommended.

    good choices i took History, eng lit, biology and archaeology - u might find that r.e, eng lit/lang and history get a bit hard going towards the end though - just to warn you - they all demand a lot of work!

    I have been told that they are alot of work but im prepared for it,I have already read the noval im going to be studying in Eng lang/Lit and looked at some websites for history at A level.But before the end it's likly that im going to drop a subject when I start A2 not sure which but its definitely NOT going to be History or R.E.

    to be fair, i think that you could probably manage those 4 if like you say, you are prepared. I mean, i said it was a lot of work but I didnt work perhaps as flat out as I should have and still managed to get everything done. I think you'll also find - no disrespect to anyone here - but compared to history, r.e and eng, you will find sociology relativly easy (at least thats what I found with archaeology and what my friends all said) in which case, you can afford to carry on four. like i also said, the only real major annoyance is in A2 year and you'll find that history and english coursework deadlines are the same and the exams are normally clumped together.
    just work hard in AS year and seriously, youll find A2 easily. I managed to secure a C in archaeology just from my AS grades!

    How did you do that if the maximum UMS you can get for AS is 300 and 300/600 for A2 is a D? :confused:
