    I'd have done chemistry, as i'm now in the first year of a physics degree and have no hope of a career in medicine (as a graduate) as my A-Levels are Maths Fmaths physics and philosophy.

    I took Maths, Chemistry, Biology and German and am taking History in one year.

    Instead I would have taken History (in 2 years!), English Lit, German (or maybe French), English Lit and perhaps a fifth subject (such as French) and I would have started vocab and grammar learning for the languages as soon as year 12 started, and not once year 13 starts!

    I do maths, physics, English language, and critical thinking (and I started French in year 11, finished the A2 at the end of yesr 12).


    I wouldn't have done French early; I would have waited to start it in year 12 like normal people. That would mean I would have had a proper teacher who actually knew what they were doing. I would have also not chosen critical thinking. I dunno what I would put in its place though.

    This. I would have looked at different sixth forms and tried to go to one where I could take Classical Civilisations as a fifth subject, but it would have been difficult.

    I would love to have the chance again. However I'm glad with what I studied at university, and I've been fortunate enough to get onto a very good Graduate Scheme. However, it has always kinda riled me, and I think always will, that I never studied Geography past GCSE's, I was always very interested in it and don't really know why I never took it futher. Had i taken it to a level I may well have gone onto uni to study it, not the way things worked out though... and lifes worked out ok, so its a tough one really
