    Doing: English Literature, Psychology, Economics. I dropped Maths.

    Would have rather done: Stuck with the first two plus either Classics or Philosophy instead of Econs, and Biology instead of Maths (actually I never know about this one... all I am certain about is that I should definitely have worked harder in Maths)

    Edit: WHY all the hate for psych?

    Yeah, I was hoping it included more discussion and debates but it's learning about pressure groups and ideologies and stuff, it doesn't sound that boring but it seriously is unfortunately :/
    I quite enjoyed Gov/Pol. But I did have awesome teachers all the way through.

    Are you doing the Crucible + Othello?

    Oops, you've done AS already, NVM LOL.
    Be thankful you aren't doing Death Of A Salesman and King Lear. -_-

    I loved psychology from that board! I got an A in it last year, but it is very difficult to remember all of the information.
    How did you manage that!? Well done! To be honest, I did enjoy it, I just didn't get the grade I was aiming for... my targets are As and I ended up getting a C! I still don't even know where I went wrong lol. I blame the teacher :P ...as no-one got higher than a C!!

    I finished my A levels over 3 years ago now, but I did French, German and history and probably would have swapped French for physics or something, I wish I'd done a science! I wanted to do R.E too but my school didn't offer it. Loved A level German and history though! :cool:

    for AS, I did French History English Lit and Maths...kind of wish I'd done Physics too, and then kept on 4 for A2, maybe even done AS Further Maths. As stupid as it sounds, I think I should have pushed myself a bit harder. Currently doing 3 A2s, and have no Jan exams, so I really don't feel like I've got THAT much work.
    although I suppose that will all change when the coursework and exams start flooding in...

    my plan would have kind of required moving schools, though, as at my current school:
    a) 5 AS levels = no frees, ever,
    b) the physics department = awful

    and that wouldn't have happened. so yeah.

    I'd have done AS Maths; I could do with it at uni. It really isn't my subject though so I wouldn't change my A2's.

    I'd have swapped economics for psychology, photography for media. Hate both bloody subjects.

    I don't think I would change anything, because I love the subjects, it's more the classes that I don't like.
