    This year i did Sociology, Psychology, Media and Photography. I am dropping Psychology but i thought about doing fast track film?
    It would mean im doing...

    A2 Photography (Retaking unit 3) (to get an A)
    A2 Sociology (Retaking mass media module) (to get an A)
    A2 Media (No retakes)
    AS World development (We have to take this.. grr)
    AS Film
    A2 Film


    Is this too much, based on what i got in my AS levels? Should i just concentrate on getting 3 A's A2, n 1 A at AS? Or should i try to get A's in film too? I'm quitting work so i can spend more time studying.

    it depends, do you think you can cope

    i did 5 AS's n 4 A2's and i found it was ok

    but it all depends on you i suppose

    did you find your workload before was too much?

    I did 6 AS Levels plus General Studies and Critical Thinking, and at A2 did 4 subject plus Critical Thinking. If you're good at media then film should be okay I would have thought? Although not having done either I can't say exactly. If you feel Film would bring you down in your other subjects, then I would say don't do it. However is it possible to start it and if you find it hard to cope,drop it?

    Why are posting pointless replies on nearly every thread? Plus the chatspeak is against the rules.

    I don't think you should do the extra A-level. I think you would be better off focusing on your other subjects and getting the highest grades you can.

    If you're going to do a fast track in any subject you could at least do one with some credibility

    Some people actually take subjects because they are interested in them and enjoy them, not just because it's respected.

    I'd say dont take the 4th AS.

    It will get in the way of your other subjects.

    This year, if I'd carried on working for chemistry, my other grades would have suffered.

    If however, you feel you are able enough to do it, go for it.

    I think you should take the 4th AS. It will work to your advantage and as you said you are going to quit the job then you should be fine with the workload. I took 4 subjects in my AS and had a part time job as well. Next year, I'll keep my job, carry on with my A2 without dropping and actually take AS Spanish.
