    Yeah, Maths and Further Maths, if you're good. Critical Thinking, General Studies, English Language? Maybe some of the less-respected ones like Law or Communication Studies?

    Nasher needs to tell Basher that it'll be very hard but doable of course with hard work. Quite a lot of people do maths in a year.

    Sorry but how is law a less respected subject?! It's seen at A level in a similar way to History and English; it requires strong analytical skills as well as essay writing, learning facts etc etc. General Studies is abit different as most unis won't accept it as an Alevel, they'll happily take law though! Godd, some people!

    Hey - I did Law at AS, so I know a fair bit about it, and it really wasn't on par with History or English Lit (which I also did). I found it very much focused on the rote learning - both the cases that had to be learnt, and the essays themselves, which we were basically taught for by being given exemplar essays to memorise. There really weren't many ways of phrasing a question on, say, the legal profession, unlike in English Lit where they can ask about any aspect of Hamlet in any way they want, which makes learning answers much harder.

    It's pretty undeniable that it is less respected, at least by unis - LSE specifically blacklist it, and a lot of people who want to do Law at uni are warned off the A-level because universities don't like it.
