    RE is gone from my life for good. No more bible quotes with references that are ridiculously hard to learn. No more class discussions that devolve into an argument between the teacher and that one kid (you know the type). No more narcissistic hipster teachers that believe they know the meaning of life.

    Thank God for that.

    French and English language because the games hang-man and who am I have now been overplayed. Almost as boring as the lessons themselves. Good luck to the younger generations who have to withstand that compulsory blabber.

    (But thanks sir for pretending not to realise my French pen pal wrote my coursework)

    Definitely Spanish.
    No me gusta para nada (I needed help from Google Translate just to finish that sentence. I learnt basically nothing in 2 years!)

    Music was very difficult from start to finish. I thought I would be learning about music theory, scales, arpeggios and about instruments, but no. We learnt about different types of music from different country's and we really only spent about 2 lessons on classical music. You didn't even have to be able to play a musical instrument to take the course, which was frustrating, being as I spend a lot of time learning to play my instruments. I think the course focuses on the wrong aspects of music.

    DT was hours of painful boredom and so was both English and History. History could have been a decent subject if I had someone other than our useless teacher. Not that I'm bitter or anything.

    ICT
    I have hated this subject since the dawn of time. It's not the theory part of the subject that's the problem. It's always been the practical. Bloody ridiculous tbh.
    Doing the ICT IGCSE will probably be the last of ICT in my life.

    Computing - I used to have such a passion for programming, but this GCSE knocked it right out of me. I think my school simply hadn't put enough preparation into the subject before trialling it on my year, and it's going to be evident in our results - my teacher often discussed how she had just learnt the subject content the night or even period before teaching it to us! Such a shame that school has the power to make or break a subject.
