    Um *****y English literature and language. Like that can piss right off, literally no one cares about them. Honestly they should die in a hole.

    HISTORY CAN GO TO ****ING HELL. The most pointless and useless ******** lessons. Literally all of it is just idiotic.

    French and spanish. Throughout the two year course I achieved NOTHING. WE WENT SO SLOWLY, like at a snail's pace it was AGONIZING. Plus the useless homework which I always did the breaktime before.

    I am actually so happy to be doing STEM and music next year

    Don't get me wrong, I just detest the fact that good books are spoilt by over analyzing, and what's the use in analyzing articles and such? It is literally POINTLESS.

    History may be due to the fact that my teacher didn't teach us anything and then just randomly ****ed off like halfway throught year 11 so we're forced to basically learn everything ourselves from scratch.

    Also communism is portrayed in a bad light which I think is unfair

    Languages, it was more a fact that I was bored and the teachers made me sit next to people I didn't like.

    Literally my A-Level choices are Maths, Chem, Physics and Bio. With something called an "enrichment course". (It was either that or critical thinking) and I chose music because well, obviously, I'm pretty good at music now.

    What did you choose for next year :holmes:

    i agree! no ones going to sit through a newspaper and analyse what the author meant by red lipstick ffs.
    aww i went through a similar situation with history but it was because my teacher was ill for half a year so we had 3 different teachers :s but other than that everything is amazing about history...apart from this girl who keeps getting political and stuff, supporting UKIP and then there's me, a minority, sitting quietly whilst everyone else joins in with politics when we're suppose to be doing history

    did you still get good grades for your coursework in languages?
    that's 5 ALEVELs omg, 6 if you include the extra subject. i cant imagine how you'll be able to come on tsr next year :/
    (btw what instrument do you play)

    i'll be choosing history, geography and gov+politics and perhaps french at AS, it depends on what i got for this summer

    UMM BOTH ENGLISHES because they are just annoying and I hate how everyone cares about them that much when I find it pretty easy.. like I like doing it, ie writing in the exam but all those lessons were so POINTLESS

    also geography ( I find it hard to remember case studies and just in general revising for it is pretty tedious)

    im so envious that you play the piano! i wished i played an instrument but they only offered us guitars but my fingers gave up.

    Music Technology- Got really, really bored after a while.

    Sociology- Got really, really bored after a while.

    English Literature- Got really, really bored after a while.

    Geography- I don't know, it just feels too repetitive and the mark schemes are weird.

    Maths- I'm going to miss Maths, but I'm still going to keep it up, just without a qualification in it. Whether I'm happy to never do it again...I'm just not willing to put myself through this potential A grade again instead of an A* in such a simple exam.

    Physics- God knows why I considered taking it for A Level.

    Biology- Got really, really bored after a while.

    Chemistry- Nope.

    History- Didn't do it for GCSE, which was quite frankly the best choice I have ever made.


    For the record, I'm taking English Language, French, Drama and Theatre Studies, and Classics for A Level.
