well it really depends what you want to do in the future, none are particularly 'better'. Though some are better 'respected', and can perhaps give you a greater range of options. It is far more important to do what you enjoy rather than what you think is 'better'. As there is a great chance that if you were to choose subjects due to their perceived worth, you may not enjoy them and sacrifice possible better grades by not doing other subjects.

if you're planning to study anything like medicine/physio/pharmacy/biomed/biochem etc at uni you will DEFINATELY need chemistry and bio at a-level. Without these, it will be impossible (med) or will severely limit your choices of unis and courses.

I took chemistry simply because I had to to go to medical school. I hated it up until a-level, but really enjoying it at a-level. I was by no means 'a natural chemist', but hard work got me the A I needed. I found biology much easier than chem. Also took geography. These were all the old a-level system though.

A-Level chem is a well respected a-level, whatever you plan to do in the future,

physics, chemistry and biology always go down a well with the uni's!!!

Also maths is good and economics and buisness studies. if you do stuff like english and media, film and **** like that they are viewed as easy subjects,......but depends on what u wanna do it life...

If you are thinking about doing a degree in something sciency, then bio, chem & history would be a good combo. Or if you are heading for a degree in arts subjects then classical civ, history plus one of the sciences would be good too

You know what else goes down well with Universities? Knowing how to use the apostrophe correctly.

Tek .. ur an idiot! What do you know you havnt even done your AS-Levels yet
So, everyone who has 'yet to do their AS Levels' is an 'idiot', are they? How exactly can one quantify this on the basis of taking - note the word taking, not doing well in - exams? Richard Branson never took any exams, but his business sense has proved that he is exceptionally astute. Furthermore, not only do I believe that my correct use of the apostrophe is an indication of the fact that I am not actually 'an idiot', but I also believe that my GCSE results reflect the fact that I am somewhat intelligent. Moreover, I am perfectly entitled to correct your abysmal grammar; you have ignored the fact that I am right on this issue. Why should I not be entitled to argue and correct people who have done their AS Levels, just because I haven't?

It's also interesting how you say I know little *because* I haven't done my AS Levels yet. You seem to neglect the fact that knowledge is not necessarily acquired through the traditional education establishments, but then, you've probably never bothered to read a book in your life (if you had, you might be able to use an apostrophe correctly, or even articulate coherent sentences).

So, I have once again proved you wrong. In fact, I have managed to prove you an idiot. Although, I didn't really need to prove it; it's a truism. So go and play with your bric - a - brac until you grow a brain.

It wasn't even my grammar you were correcting lol - egg on YOUR face tonight! LOL

I was saying 'what do you know' in that you were saying how little value an A-Level in Media Studies was ... when in fact you don't have the right to say things like that ... ok?

If you had a brain cell, you might have written:

"Tek: you are an idiot! What do you know when you haven't even done your AS Levels yet?"

But you are an idiot. So you didn't write that. Instead you wrote some incoherent junk of which any 5 year old would have been ashamed.

And I'm entitled to my opinion too:
  • Film Studies - not Media Studies - is a waste of time and a fundamentally useless A Level (mainly because no half decent University will accept it for entry)
  • *dave* is an idiot

One - Do Not Use the Lord's Name in Vain. Oh, and how does one 'type perfectly with every word'? Do you mean 'perfectly type every word'?
Two - An "A" Grade in Film Studies is worth nothing.
Three - You provoked this discussion, so do not warn me to back off.
