    Should have never taken ICT. It was so badly taught and the syllabus was incredibly tedious.

    Instead, should have taken a Biology/Chemistry or a English. I did get A's for them at GCSEs but I never did like or enjoy them so...meh.

    Maths was a massive mistake, no idea what I was thinking.
    Wish I hadn't taken PE either, I should have done something like Law or Politics instead.
    Happy with English Lit and History though.
    What was PE like? I'm considering it ...

    Biggest regret for AS - Maths. I could have easily got an A and carried it on to A-level. But I messed around and got a C 'cause I'm a ****.
    Biggest regret at A-level - German.

    ofolion are you crazy ??? i do i.c.t and chemistry lol and chemistry is deadly!!
    My ICT course is the biggest waste of time ever. A whole year using microsoft office does not constitute as a qualification. The mark boundaries are also insane; last year it was 92% for an A, and its not a respected subject.

    Chemistry is more respected and would be useful plus i did well at in GCSE, i have no idea why i didn't take it this year.

    My friends that take it have said it is a lot of work and has more essays and such than they expected. None of them regret taking it though so if you are interested in that sort of thing, go for it. About 50% of the 30 taking it at A Level at my college are doing something related at university, such as Sports Science.

    The biggest mistake of my LIFE was choosing Economics. And continuing it onto A2.

    The worst subject ever.

    I wish I had kept French on for A-level instead of dropping it after AS...would have done it instead of chemistry, but then again without chemistry it would have been harder to apply for the courses I want

    + Continuing all 4 this year
    + Taking subjects with coursework heavy bearings
    + Not taking a 'traditional' subject ie maths

    On a plus, it was hard work but worth it, as it meant less exams and I knew what i needed to get in the exam to get my grades

    All of my 3 original ones. Business, Psychology and English Language. Didn't get me anywhere. I ended up having to do Chemistry independently this year just to get into a decent course.

    I've taken:

    English Lit
    French
    German
    Maths
    Further Maths
    (and General Studies :p:)

    And regret not taking History and Physics. But my school wouldn't let me. I suppose I regret not self-teaching a couple in order to fit them al in.
