    Meh I hated History and Busines at the end of year 11, History because the only thing mentioned was russia seriously I didn't give a rats ass about russia, meh didn't study didn't care about the exam so got an F.

    Business (Doing a degree in it) managed to get an E because I hated the teacher she didn't teach me anything and then was put for the higher paper.

    Higher paper was after I decided to do what most people on here wouldn't dare to do move from the top sets in year 8 to bottom sets in year 9 because of how it was taught.

    Je ne regrette rien.

    Honestly, since I'm in Yr 12 now, GCSEs don't even feel like they ever happened.

    I suppose it would have been a little bit better if I took History or Geography for GCSE, since if I apply to a European uni, they'd like to see as much variety as possible and that's the only field I haven't got covered. Then again, I hated them so much that I couldn't have possibly taken them for GCSE, even if right now I got to choose over again. I chose ICT over History and French over Geography. ICT was enjoyable and useful (and at that time I wanted to be a software engineer) and I'm still studying French for A Levels.

    So,

    I don't really have any strong regrets, in the grand scheme of things the particular GCSEs I chose mean nothing. Media Studies was pretty dire, I thought I enjoyed it at the time, but looking back I think I definitely would have preferred drama (our school MADE us choose one 'expressive art' subject).

    I wish I had taken Latin, Chinese or Spanish instead of Classical Civilsation. I got an A for Class Civ but didn't take it on to sixth form, which I would have with Spanish Chinese or Latin, as i hate French but love languages

    Should have done History, would have been much more interesting.

    I hated History at the time, my teacher never gave me higher than a C on any of the mock papers :rolleyes:

    In the actual exam I got an A, don't know how but I was very happy about this!

    Exactly what I was going to say, I ended up dropping it half way through year 11, such a waste of time and energy!

    Thinking about it now, all my GCSEs are pointless, I only really need Maths, English & Science and that's purely to get into teaching lol

    Was pretty much tricked my by school into taking OCR ICT, they told me it was worth at least 2 (and up to 4) GCSE's, and if I didn't take it I'd have to do some sort of ICT lesson at college. Completely untrue.

    I chose to do history but for some reason the school made me do health and social care
    I regret not telling my head of year that they changed my options without telling me.
