    Well i wouldn't do it! But if you're naturally good at them then it won't be too much. You can always start off doing 5 and drop one if it gets too much.

    Oooh SiAny, you're doing Sociology AS/A2, could you give me your opinion on the subject, please?

    Sociology isn't as easy as it is made out to be, but it isn't that difficult either. I think a lot depends on your teachers. All the way through AS the lessons were boring and the homework we got set was stupid, but anyway...
    I revised like crazy for my family module which i sat in Jan and got a low-ish A. Then i crammed for the education module and got a slightly higher A. Compared to biology, sociology is a walk in the park! Don't start the course thinking it's an easy A, because it isn't. But just do the work and you'll come out with a good grade, hopefully! Essay skills are handy for the exams.

    Thanks SiAny, I went to the taster class just to go with my friend and I was certain I wanted to do G&P, but I loved the taster class and it was everything I expected G&P to be like. Maybe I am wrong in thinking it'll be easy, but because I find is so interesting and I think I'll be good at it, I am sort of seeing it as an easy A . But I will work hard and I definitely do not think it's an easy mickey-mouse subject!

    Are there any revision books you could reccomend?

    I used some revision packs that my teacher gave me. Can't remember what they were called, sorry! It IS interesting at times, and easy if you're interested. An A is within reach!

    Do 4.

    I made the mistake of only doing three, and then having to do one on my own in the second year to make my Warwick offer. I did make it btw lol.
