just want to see some views, i heard that people are saying students are opting for easy A-levels like sociology, psychology instead of hard ones like maths and physics. WOULD YOU CALL PSYCHOLOGY A_LEVEL EASY???

No, I wouldn't. No A-levels are easy because it's done at advanced level. It just depends which subject you're good at.

I don't think anyone and everyone can pass it so I guess it isn't really that easy. But unlike Mathematics you don't need to have much pre-knowledge of the subject so it attracts more people. And to be honest I'm not sure why people say it's so easy because if it is I'd hate to imagine what A-Level Physics was like.

But some (Media, Film etc) are not respected at all.

psychology, media studies, business studies, sociology are the easy a-levels. maths, physics, chem, bio, english, economics, computing, politics, history....are the REAL, PROPER A-LEVELS. the statistic about people opting for easy a-levels is strange, because to get into top uni's like oxford, cambridge, imperial and york....you need good grades in proper a-levels i.e.) ones which the university respect and award offers for etc.

And McDonald's, seemingly, they employ a lot of graduates in such disciplines.

Iwould argue about where you have placed psychology and politics, but on the whole I agree.

i have said the complete truth there. good universitys want good grades in good subjects. they call these easy subjects "mickey mouse" subjects. and rightly so. maths, physics, english etc are REAL, WORTHY, IMPORTANT, RESPECTED AND APPRECIATED A-LEVELS.

* i hate people, who dont get good grades at gcse, then they do mickey mouse a-levels, then complain how they are not easy and comparable to proper a-levels. it really annoys me, i am sorry, i gotta say it. but obviously, when they wanna apply to oxford, its a "lol.......wow, bet you must be a genius to get a b grade in textiles and a b grade in psychology lol". *

True, how many Oxbidge and the like's students have an A-level in Media Studies? Very, very few, and probably none had media as a main A-level, just an extra one.

of course mate, but even if you LIED (hint, hint, at how people have lied to try and show that their extra A-level in psychology is just as worthy as their real ones), it wouldnt matter. i think we all know which A-Levels oxbridge, york, imperial are bothered about or respect the most.

Hey, don't knock textiles But seriously would an Art College prefer A-Level grades in Maths, Chem, Physics and Art or Art, Textiles and graphics... the latter I believe. To be honest I really think it depends on what the individual wants to do. Film Studies A-Level may be more useful to someone who wants to do a degree in Film Studies at there local college were grade requirements are low and that A-Level may have really helped their understanding rather than doing say, English.

Just because the majority of people on here do want to go to 'respected' universities here and for some people Chemistry may be to hard to do and if they did decide to study it they may get a grade 'E' over a grade 'C' at Film Studies which is obviously a bigger credit to them.

If I had my way there wouldn't be a degree in Film Studies.
