If you are picking your A-Levels... for ****s sake don't just pick them because they are 'easy' compared to others.

They are all at the same level.

There are no easy A-Levels, it would be better to choose subject areas which you enjoy and are useful for courses you want to pursue.

They are not at the same level and picking them on what is easiest, means that your are most likely anidiot and will ruin your life anyway.

Easier A levels are **** like Business, ICT, Psychology, Law, Geography, Env science, Easier is also a matter of perspective these are A levels that admissions tutors consider most of these not facillitating or not as good.(this doesn't mean unis won't accept them)

Well respected A levels:

Maths
English lit and lang
Languages
Physics
Chemistry
Further maths
History
Biology
Economics
Suprisingly Art is actually a lot of work and is hard
Design A levels arent looked upon badly especially for **** like architecture courses.

Maybe a few more but i cant think of any.

There’s a problem with me. If I start studying anything, I start liking it. I want to do medical and I like biology and chemistry a lot but I’m not good at memorising stuff.

Which is the easiest a level subject in your opinion? Please given a reason for the subject you mention
if you put in enough time and self learn enough maths can be really easy - like you can walk into the exam and breeze it. self-learning in the year 13 summer helped me loads.

Chemistry can be ok if you are willing to put in time reading notes.

All I can comment on

Bro don't pick because they say it easy. If you do that you will pick dead subjects that you have no interest in. You won't invest a lot of your time in the subject and everyday will be sht as you would be doing the subjects based on how easy others found it.

I think if you already have a strong interest in sciences it would be best to pursue your study further. I was in the same position last year from my experience if you pick subjects you enjoy studying won't be as difficult. Sciences are tough at A-Level and revision will be tough going- it all depends on your learning style and interest.

Subjective but for me I did English lit, Geology, History and Chemistry. I found Chemistry an absolute breeze but English Lit was the bane of my life :lol:

Think there's certain A levels that aren't quite as respected and could be considered "soft"

I’m going to do business in future as my father is a business man. I like sciences but almost all my teachers recommend me quite and move to the business or law side

In which country did you do your a levels?
I did my o levels in Pakistan. Chemistry is one of my favourite subjects but my chemistry teacher recommended me not to take it in A levels. She said that A level chemistry is tough and requires a lot of memorisation
I do mine in the UK. There is an aspect of memorisation but not as many as other like biology, eco and history/stuff like that.
I found that reading notes on the bus maybe once/twice a week(usually less) helped a lot whether it was reading ahead or old notes was enough along with revising a lot before A-Levels/mocks/AS levels. I recommend chemrevise for this.
There is also abit of maths you need to know which will take practice but it should be fine after enough questions.
A-Level chemistry is completely different from GCSE but If you learn the content enough early then it can be really easy

I think you should pursue subjects which are related to law or business, if you wanted you could also take on a science if you had an interest in studying it.

No a level is easier than the other. Sciences and maths involve rigorous study of facts and technical learning. English, History and Psych are concerned with the wider horizon of essays and in-depth knowledge of the world, especially analysis. Plus the other subjects such as Sociology or Geography aren’t easy, considering they also are content heavy

They are not at the same level and picking them on what is easiest, means that your are most likely anidiot and will ruin your life anyway.

Easier A levels are **** like Business, ICT, Psychology, Law, Geography, Env science, Easier is also a matter of perspective these are A levels that admissions tutors consider most of these not facillitating or not as good.(this doesn't mean unis won't accept them)

Well respected A levels:

Maths
English lit and lang
Languages
Physics
Chemistry
Further maths
History
Biology
Economics
Suprisingly Art is actually a lot of work and is hard
Design A levels arent looked upon badly especially for **** like architecture courses.

Maybe a few more but i cant think of any.
I’m not doing A-Levels at the moment, but I know that’s geography isn’t easy - in fact it is a facilitating subject and looked upon well by Universities

Ever heard of it?
No I haven't heard of it but I have no doubt they will let you switch there up until 3-4 weeks, I did 2 different A-Level subjects up until my 4th week then switched them both (History and further maths to EPQ and Chemistry)
