    English Lit - The one subject I actually enjoy doing at GCSE

    Maths (Stats) - I feel like I need a break from all my other essay subjects, and think Maths would be a good option for that

    Philosophy - Really like the sound of this course, and it looks really interesting

    Classical Civilisation - Didn't want to do this originally, but my sixth form put it down as one of my options 'cause it compliments the others. After looking at the content I think this will be one of my favourite subjects next year, before even doing it!

    As long as I never have to do Science again, I'm happy with my choices

    Maths
    Further Maths
    Physics
    Chemistry
    Biology

    It wasn't difficult to choose, I really like these subjects. I was a bit unsure about whether to take Biology or not because everyone says doing five is difficult and I'm not as good at Biology anyway, but I chose it because if I change my mind, the school says they will let me drop it immediately, whereas picking it up having not picked it would be more difficult.
    Exactly what I am doing.... ..but I totally regret it
    ..
    How can you cope up with biology when your doing maths and further...for me its impossible...Bio is such a freaking damned subject...5 times as fat as physics but 30 times less.likely for a topic to pop up in the exam. Its like for physics I learn 25 concepts and sure that 15+ will be tested on at the exam...but for Bio I learn 250+ random facts. And only 30+ would be tested.

    I wish that I had taking additional maths rather than bio because I waste too much time on bio revision...

    :/ Well, I might have to drop it, hopefully not.

    Maths - decent at it and its a good A-level to have.
    English Language - a good A-level to have
    Media Studies - looks fun and I'm interested in how the media works.
    History - I love history and its a respected A-level to have.

    Absolutely no clue. I've got about 8 months to make my mind up - I've started drawing up lists of potential combinations but I'm no closer to where I was when I started!!!!

    I'm in my last year of A-Levels andcurrently studying Accounting, Computing and Economics. I basically choose mine as I was planning on doing Forensic Accounting at uni. However I've now come to realise that I could have picked absolutely anything to get into this course!!
    So frustrating!!!!

    Firstly look at what you want to do after A-Levels and see if you need any particular A-Levels to do it and then secondly look at what you enjoy.

    Art

    Not sure whether I want to definitely do Art but my dad has this big dream of me getting a career in it so it's either do it and think of it as a hobby or not do it and just become another "Oh you could of been doing this if you carried on with art" stories that he tells about my older sister .-.

    I'm still deliberating, but right now I'm leaning towards:
    English Literature
    History
    Religious Studies
    And possibly English Language, although the school I go to doesn't offer that at A-Level, so I may have to go somewhere else to study that.

    Maths, F.Maths

    Indefinite choices:
    Physics, Philosophy, Biology or Geography.

    Apparently I have to take on an EPQ at my school's sixth form which I'm not too happy about, I'm also considering moving school for sixth form and I might take advantage of some other courses offered at different schools.

    I find History the most difficult, others might disagree! I'm on OCR, and there is a a lot of content - current exam I'm studying for German nationalism, 1789-1919, and you've got to be synoptic of the entire era for good marks. AS year was a manageable amount of content, the only real difficulty with that was learning exam skills and essay styles. A2 is a nightmare sent from hell and I can't wait for it to be over.
    I'm doing this too! I don't even know where/how to start revising. I know a couple dates but in terms of answering the questions.....

    Same here! Me and my friend have both reached the stage where we know most of the content, but we've spent so long revising that that we've no idea how to answer the essay questions it's such a boring, dry, difficult unit! OCR is such a nightmare!

    Not too sure about the Chinese, this will be taken outside of school but it sounds like it's really hard and a lot of work :P

    Still waiting to decide between Physics and Further Maths. Not sure which one to pick!
    Planning to do Law, hope it's a good enough combination but I still have quite a number of months yet until I need to choose:')

    Maths - Has always been my best subject, apart from a few months in year 10 where I totally lost my confidence. I have since regained it and in the Spring Maths test I got 95/100, as well as a solid 94 on the Maths Challenge. Ready to bring on A-level Maths.
    Chemistry - LOVE Chemistry. I know the whole periodic table and its history, and I can sing the elements song.
    Biology - Another subject I love, and also the science I get the best grades in. GENETICS <3
    Physics - Probably my least favourite of the three, but I'm quite good at Physics due to my maths ability.

    It was a long decision coming up with these A-levels and I was changing my mind every day.

    Really interesting subjects once you get into them. Perfect if you don't like writing long essays (Except for Physics coursework )
