    Chose Sociology Alevel because the teacher was banter but now I cannot stand it and it's essentially one of the worst subjects I've ever done.

    At GCSE picked Music because I thought they'd teach you how to play an instrument

    Oh don't get me wrong, the content is interesting. You learn a lot about real life and it makes you a more well-rounded person in terms of you knowledge of society, but it's one of those subjects that have SO MUCH memorisation which is a given for Alevels but for this it just seems like such a waste. There are around 1000 names of sociologists + dates that their studies were published that you have to learn (no exaggeration). Some of them are ridiculously useless and just state the obvious e.g. Blah blah (1987) says that men and women do not have equal pay, which is something you could write from your own knowledge but you HAVE to include the sociologists name :sigh:
    It's such a badly thought out and structured subject in terms of Alevels.

    I picked Travel & Tourism at school, because I thought I was going to go to all these cool places. Alas, not.

    I chose economics with a dream of wanting to someday start a business when I'm older and seemed to fool myself in to thinking it would help despite also thinking it involved a lot of maths (I didn't like maths)



    Nothing to do with maths at GCSEs and absolutely hated it. Ended up getting a C (no surprise) and found out on results day (last week) that we were doing economics short course meaning I would only get half the number of GCSEs points for it, lucky I did alright in my GCSEs so could still do 4 subjects- phew 😅

    GCSE and AS Geography because I found it interesting... It's by far the most stressful subject ever

    Also, not me specifically, but there are 6 of us taking AS Travel and Tourism, and someone persuaded 2 others to take because it would be fun. That person ended up leaving the school and the other 2 have regretted it throughout the whole year and have been so behind on coursework, don't think they'll be back for A2
