    To be honest, as much as I hated Sciences throughout, by the end I learnt to love them, and I'm actually really sad to not continue studying Biology and Chemistry.

    I even started liking English Lang while cramming the whole course in the last three days before the exam, but I can't say I'm sad about that one...

    But overall I did like all the subjects I studied and I think it's a shame having to narrow down to 5 now
    I've just finished year 12, and I do biology and chemistry. Chemistry is really really good imo if you understand the topics well. Biology was interesting in a way, but the amount you had to learn woow. But really it all comes down to what you enjoy(<so important!) and what you want to do at uni.

    Definitely German- 5 years wasted on that **** and I can't even speak it decently well (it's a wonder I got an A* in one of my speakings!)

    Also Physics- it was just too confusing and chronically boring yet fortunately I didn't do the entire course as I only did OCR Additional (radioactivity was still fun though).

    ICT- we were forced to take it but I enjoyed Activity 3; it became really fun towards the end when the teacher finally realised we were a completely different bunch of students to the ones she had in her previous school.

    I gave up most of the lessons I despised in Year 9 so I had a relatively enjoyable GCSE experience. My biggest mistake was definitely Art, but I still enjoyed it: the teacher was lovely and it was a great atmosphere. It was just a bit annoying when the two other people on my table were getting A*'s with flying colours and I was stuck on a C.

    Maths and Spanish..I'm absolutely sick of them both! As long as I can get a B grade or above in them, then move on, I'll be unbelievably happy.

    Maybe the best thing about finishing your GCSEs is that, from now on, you get to study whatever you want.

    No longer will you have to sit through lessons of subjects you hate, or revise folders full of stuff you can't stand.

    But which is the GCSE you're most thrilled to never think of again?

    Quite a few actually.
    Starting from History down to English Literature and Arabic.
    OMG Arabic was down right the worst subject ever.

    I've already ditched most of the subjects I hated(DT, Music, Latin, RS, History, Geography). It'll be hard for me to choose A-Levels(If all goes well with my GCSE's) xD
