    Welsh. I wasn't overly bothered about learning the language, I just know that it puts you leaps ahead if you're applying for jobs in Wales as it's so often down in the 'desirable' section on the person spec, normally boiling down to a Welsh Assembly obligation for something to be in Welsh!

    That aside, Maths, as it was most relevant to what I wanted to do - computer science

    Probably either History for the International Relations paper (Too many dates and treaties for my brain :P ) or maybe Physics because we had a terrible teacher so we kinda had to teach ourselves. I probably revised least for English Language because...well there's not much to revise :P

    I did the most revision for history purely because of the content, and came out with an A*. I also put a lot of effort into my Spanish revision because we did a 'beginner to GCSE in one year' course, and came out with an A

    I did the least for English Lang/Lit and came out with A*/A.

    Most: Latin, purely because of the bloody literature.
    Least: Maths.
    Do you do OCR latin? The pliny and virgil is taking quite some time to learn.

    History.
    I didn't particularly enjoy the subject so I just had to sit there and get it to stick in my short-term memory. And just by learning all of the facts/dates I managed to get full UMS in both papers that I sat. So it works! I wouldn't be able to tell you anything now that I'd somehow learnt, though.

    Yep. For me, Virgil and Apuleius are hell.

    I think I did the most revision for English Language (going back a few years) for my third time taking the exam.

    First 2 times I got a C, then realised I needed to pull my finger out. Revised for all Anthology poems except for one, which luckily didn't turn up in the exam. Got a B, which was necessary for getting on several of my AS courses. Which I did crap in and dropped out of college...

    But now I don't have to do English or Maths as part of my Access to HE course I don't think people realise that if you do bad in English and Maths at school, as long as you're in further education, you won't see the end of it.

    Most - History (by far)
    I personally found that with humanities at GCSE, you either had the subject where you simply regurgitated facts onto a page or you had to analyse, but oh no, history required you to do BOTH. Memorising what happened, to whom and in what order over the space of 40 years across 3 separate continents was interesting, but not fun to revise for.

    Least - English
    There's only so much you can do really, like going over certain techniques for certain forms of writing, however I'm a firm believer that you can't "learn" creativity. I usually just walk in and pray haha :P
