    Hi, i know this is not a straight forward question...but my friend wanted to do an AS level to up her UCAS points.

    Maths! Easy! lol.

    Well, if you're that way inclined.

    I think easy is probably the wrong word, but Psychology is manageable

    Something like Critical thinking or General Studies are the obvious choices. But they would have to be carefull, as some universities don't accept these as part of the offer. Also, bare in mind that lots don't count ASs, just A2, but i suppose that they have already considered that.

    To be honest, i think all subjects have their own weight and difficulties though. Even ones that are considered "easy" by many, often have a large weight-load, perhaps just based in time, rather than mentally.

    Critical Thinking easy? Only one person got above a C in it at my school last year (it wasn't me...)!

    Media Studies is reputed to be easy to get good marks in.

    Psychology is manageable in terms of the content.However the exams are difficult as you have to very specific and if you dont word the answer properly you get no marks. Also as some q's are linked if you get 1 wrong your likely to get the nxt 2 q's wrong.

    Furthermore like most other a-levels , one is severley constrained by time !!

    I'd say that general studies is easiest. Certainly at my college as it is the only subject one can pick up, say if the drop anothr. Thus indicating it is "easy" to some extent atleast.

    you have to be careful: some universities don't accept general studies or critical thinking as subjects that "count", but otherwise maths would be a good choice...

    General Studies, it's easy and little effort required, although it may not be accepted.

    Although with some subjects there's always going to be a guaranteed amount of hard work to do, whilst with maths if you're good at it you can blitz it.
