    This time last year (going into second year of sixth form next week, so just finished first year) I was glad to get rid of physics and math!

    Also English Language

    But I ended up being 'forced' into taking it as an AS since I did so well at it during my GCSE years (I actually enjoy it at A-Level though).

    I've finished my GCSEs now and am waiting on results, but the one subject I ABSOLUTELY DESPISED was GEOGRAPHY. I practically hated every lesson since it started, but I stuck with it cause I thought it would get better.

    Turns out it didn't.

    English. I love reading but the way that English is taught and examined in the UK is beyond ridiculous. I couldn't stand it.

    Maybe the best thing about finishing your GCSEs is that, from now on, you get to study whatever you want.

    No longer will you have to sit through lessons of subjects you hate, or revise folders full of stuff you can't stand.

    But which is the GCSE you're most thrilled to never think of again?

    Maths, I hated it so much. Walking into that classroom to my teacher yelling at everyone and watching him draw up numbers and algebra. Pretty sure I haven't got below a C in maths so I never have to do it again

    Just wanted to share with you guys what I did for GCSE and what I ditched for AS >.<

    - English Literature
    - English Language
    - Geography
    - History
    - Maths
    - Additional Maths
    - Short course PE
    - Music
    - Product Design
    - RS
    - French
    - Biology
    - Physics
    - Chemistry

    + AS General Studies

    I couldn't wait to get rid of almost all of them haha - I really did choose the subjects for AS wisely and have had a good year with them - I particularly hated sciences (because I'm more of an arts student) and quickly switched from taking A-level Physics to A-level Economics (best decision of my life)! The reason why I took A-level Physics was because I was influenced from my parents and those around me (apparently I was good at it) but I knew that after my last physics exam I wouldn't be able to last another 2 years at it. So I took these A-level subjects:

    - History
    - Government and Politics
    - Economics
    - Maths
    - Further Maths

    And I don't plan on dropping any of them for A2 Good luck with the new A-level guys! You can do it!

    Mathematics - barely knew what was going on.

    Science - not enough practicals. Too much remembering.

    English Language - Waste of time.

    Religious Studies - Mark's Gospel was a waste of time. The Community Cohesion unit of the Religion and Life component was boring.

    German - never learned the vocab.

    History(ish) - Going to miss everything but that stupid Women's History coursework. An entire term of my life. Double lessons. Never again.
