If You Were To Turn Back The Clock, Which A-Levels Would You Choose? Watch
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
But I would take French instead of EPQ.
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.
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.

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?
