    Hi!
    I am on my last year in 6th form and am doing English lit., Psychology, and media. I would say that the hardest is psychology because although it is quite easy to understand, there is so much to learn and remember! The easiest as easy goes would be the media because there is so much scope and doesn't require as much in depth analysis as say English literature. However, before I moved onto my final year, I originally did psychology, biology, history and English lit which require a much more I'm depth understanding and much more essay writing. That is why I redid yr 12 with psychology, media and English which gave me the grades to continue onto my final year!
    Hope this helps!

    What do you want to go into at Uni?
    I applied for
    Natural Sciences ( Cambridge, Exeter, UCL, Durham)
    Chemistry and Maths (St. Andrews)

    honestly I find physics pretty interesting but the questions that can come up can be really difficult(from what I've seen so far)
    What about you?

    I want to do Economics and Politics (Uni of Bath) A*AA
    Economics is quite difficult because of the graphs but I will get better as I get used to it. But overall Economics is an interesting subject

    well, I'm doing old spec so can't speak for new spec but yeah Like it, just started the F. Maths A2 stuff and its pretty interesting so far (series, inequalities and some complex numbers) - I think my tip for the new spec even if I don't know it, is make sure you fully understand the normal maths content before you begin F maths.

    In short yeah its really interesting so far

    Thanks for your opinion. Yeah that's true, it's better to grasp the content.
