If You Were To Turn Back The Clock, Which A-Levels Would You Choose? Watch
Is it worth switching with philosophy? I do maths politics philosophy and economics, I didn't pick it because I didn't choose it at GCSE and chose geography instead (never doing geography for a level such a tedious subject) and i wasn't even sure they would let me do the course.
I started out doing Geography in year 12 as well, but I ended up dropping it after three or four weeks because I just started a part time job in my first week of sixth form and the workload from my AS was so huge something had to give. Was debating between Art and Geoggers but decided to drop Geography because my teacher would give me five case studies to do for the next day and if I was at work that evening there was no way I could finish it without going to bed stupidly late. Also, my Art teacher had a fit when I told her I wanted to drop Art. :P
Really, I wish I'd just not bothered getting a job so early in the year, or quit it to find one where I could only work at weekends and not flexi-hours.
But then again, if I'm honest, I was ready to drop all my subjects about two months into sixth form.
I really wish I'd taken Science subjects. The only reason I didn't was because I'm a bit squeamish around blood and surgery . Unfortunately I was also put off by my mum, who really struggled through her Chemistry A Level. Now I'm stuck doing English Literature as a degree, with 9 contact hours a week and absolutely no direction in life. I love how with STEM subjects you can really aspire to one career… and I have no idea what I'm doing… I just feel like I'm wasting my time…
I thought long and hard about what I would enjoy doing at A level, instead of what my parents wanted me to do. I would have failed horribly if I had listened to my mum, but seeing as I chose subjects I love, I'm doing well and enjoying it at the same time, so I can't complain!
I would've chosen Latin instead of French. Otherwise, I'd keep my other A Levels
Your struggling for A level and Ucas points and when you get to uni you're still sitting next to people who didn't sit a single exam. Damn all that stress.
AS/A2 Communication and Culture (1 year course)
I would have stuck to BTEC Hairdressing if I had known how much stress A Levels were, I heard people talk about how stressful they were but I honestly thought they were exaggerating lol. Plus French is officially the worst A Level ever!
If I could pick again I would NOT have taken French It is definitely the hardest AS out of the four of them. I think if I had taken something like history, english literature or psychology (if my school offered that) I probably would have done much better in my exams.
Guys I did A Level Latin (doing it at uni with French) and the jump to AS is HUGE. It is literally so hard compared to GCSE and the jump feels bigger than that in subjects like maths.
I wish I swapped chemistry and geography for physics and politics
if I could choose again I'd choose English history maths and psychology
