    Chose French AS for year 10 and 11 because I thought it would be easy after the GCSE and most of the class was doing it... turns out the majority got Es and Us and it was awful


    Also I chose triple science for GCSE options, even though science was my weakest subject, because one of my friends was doing it and we had the exact same options (dumb reason really). Turns out science wasn't my weak spot and I fell in love with the subject, thanks to the teachers, and I'm now doing 3 sciences at A Level. Silly choices can have a big impact

    Catering GCSE because I like eating food. I thought you could just make food, eat it, write about it and get an easy grade A*.

    I chose History and Geography cause I thought we would get to go to field trips (like they say in story books) or another country for free. Ugh the absolute stress of both subjects combined is horrid.

    I chose English Literature AS Level simply because I got an A* at GCSE even though I didn't like the subject that much. I now can't stand English and wish I had chosen Spanish instead

    Chose Art because it was fun in S2, and it was either that or music (can't play an instrument).
    Chose Chemistry because I was told we got to do loads of cool experiments.... haven't done an experiment since November...

    I chose RE because I had nothing else to choose, there was literally the options of BTECs or ICT/PE/catering.

    Kinda wish I chose ICT now as everyone who didn't choose RE are also doing full course anyway, so I wasted an option lol
