I wish I'd taken Physics instead of Japanese. And then maybe Maths or Politics, but I don't know what I'd swap it for.
You took Japanese? Do you have a Japanese background or did your school offer it?

There's so much that I would change...maybe Further Maths or History instead of English or Drama/Politics instead of Economics. I also wouldn't have changed school as many times as I did- I think that's affected how hard I find my subjects now.

I'd like to say I'd change nothing. I originally wanted to do Economics but my school didn't offer it, so I took Business as the next best thing, and now I want to do a Business Management degree.

I do question why I took Drama but I am predicted an A for A2 in it, and that is quite hard at A-level. In a way, I wish I was intelligent enough to do Maths. I got an A in it at GCSE but I had no natural ability, I forced the grade on myself by 2 hours of maths revision every day for 6 weeks. I was in the bottom sets

Took History, Physics, Maths and Japanese. I suck way too hard at Maths and will probably fail this AS, but Phyiscs means nothing without Maths, so I would've taken History, Art and Japanese, and screw doing a 4th - A levels are too hard.

Would still take all my four subjects: maths, further maths, physics and chemistry.
But I would take French instead of EPQ.

I would definately have done Physics. Don't regret not picking it, but it would've saved me a year.

I do chemistry, psychology, maths and biology atm. If I could change them, I'd still keep the first 3, but instead of biology I would have chosen english literature/economics/philosophy&ethics/government&politics (I really wish I switched to something else -_-)

Are you applying for PPE?
I'm not sure at the moment, either that or a economics degree

Took Physics, Maths, Chemistry, Biology

With hindsight, would have chosen Further Maths instead of Biology. Would have also dropped Chemistry at AS instead of sticking with all four for two years.

Studying physics at uni, final year. Somewhat regret not choosing computer science, but on the other hand I am really happy with my choice as it has offered me a great set of skills that computer science would never have given me, and these skills will let me achieve my dreams.

UEA is better than Essex, they're both good but I wish I had got the grades to go somewhere better

I took Maths, Classical Civ, and Graphic Design, and for the most part hated my choices.

If I could choose again I would probably take Geography, Classical Civ, and a foreign language. Maybe History.

I'm sitting the A-level Japanese exams this summer as a private candidate. It took me until well after I left college to discover, but I really enjoy learning languages.

Hey! No need to feel bummed about the uea. I'm from Norfolk and I adore the uea, so much so that I wish I lived elsewhere so I could go to the uea and things would be new.

Do economics if you can't get into Oxford is my recommendation as PPE from anywhere else isn't as good as economics at another top uni. What are your other grades like?
