It seems to mean that unis dont consider it adequate preparation for a uni degree. Basically they are less respected and are generally thought of as being the 'soft' options for A Level.
where can u find this information on 'blacklisted' subjects ?
Each universities website has a list of them (as they change from place to place). They are usaully in general application part for anyone applying.
Only Cambridge and LSE have official black listed subjects and MustardMan has put them up on the first page of this thread. Other universities dont specifically state that they have 'blacklisted' subjects although it is generally accepted that 'top' unis do have subjects they look more favourably on than others. Generally 'traditional' subjects like English Literature, Maths, Languages etc are looked upon more fondly than 'Studies' subjects.
nope nothing like that on sunderland university website
I am certainly not going to be going to Cambridge or Oxford, I aint that clever.
At the moment my only 2 concrete choices would be ICT and History. I am not sure about the other 2.
All the languages are generally suitable subjects...Is it still the case when one of the language i take is one of my first languages?
And also, why do they class all the A levels into science and arts?
sorry to bring this up,
but is geography blacklisted?(at lse etc)
Do whatever you think you will enjoy. Most of them are about the same in terms of "reputation" so just think what you want to do later and which you'll enjoy. End of.
I would say take these:
Government and Politics
I think they will be a respected a-level combination
I got offers from Bristol, LSE, Warwick, and Manchester fr Econs..
I also got called fr an Ox interview, although its nthin to shout abt
You need at least 2 traditionals to be considered by LSE
It's all very well taking the subjects which are most respected, but not if you're gonna struggle and end up with low grades in them. A/Bs in the blacklisted subjects will look a lot better on your ucas form! I would definitely advise on taking history and RS out of the ones you listed, as these are very solid subs which any uni will look favourably on.
Hey, I'm planning to apply to Oxford to do History, I've just started 6th form and I'm taking Art, History, English Language and Biology, I've heard that English Language is not that well looked upon and I'm contemplating picking up Religious Studies+Philosophy as a fifth A level and probably dropping English Language after AS.
Is Religious Studies+Philosophy combined a well regarded subject?
Thankyou : )
