With results of A levels increasing every year what is the secret. Some have said they are two grades easier than 20 years ago, others say we don’t remember how hard they are and many people argue it is down to the courses people take. With the introduction of newer subjects like media studies alongside more traditional choices such as Maths can they both be considered of equal value ? Surely the value is in the eye of the beholder. All courses are designed to be of the same standard but that doesn’t mean they are equally difficult to study for. A levels are taken in areas people are gifted in unlike GCSE which requires a broad selection.
