    If forced to choose would you take a subject that you were very good at, or one that you enjoy but aren't so good at?

    Generally, if I'm good at a subject I enjoy it. There probably are subjects which I enjoy but aren't very good at though...

    Subject you enjoy but aren't so good at because if you enjoy a subject, you'll be willing to put the work in so revision won't be as much of a chore and you'll improve. As mentioned above though, generally people tend to enjoy the subjects they're good at.

    Definately what you enjoy.
    The first term will be hard work, and you wont do very well, but if you enjoy it you will put lots of work into it and you will get better at the subject, and evenually reep the rewards.

    I gave up two subjects I got A*s in favour of one I got an A in (my friend did too). In all fairness there was extenuating circumstances and I did much better in history AS than I would've done in Bio or German but hey.

    Do what you enjoy. If you don't like it, what on earth is the point is studying it?

    It's got to be what you enjoy. If you don't enjoy a subject, you'll have trouble motivating yourself to work for it.

    And while this doesn't matter in the short run if you have the aptitude, it can affect your choice of education in the future, when aptitude isn't enough, and it could create bad work pattens.

    IMO I think that if you enjoy a subject you motivate yourself to be better at it, I HATED physics with a passion and it showed I couldnt be bothered with it, i really couldnt stand it I done NO revision and done my gcse coursework for it in about 30minutes then left 90% of the paper blank, but then the subjects I enjoyed eg. Biology I revised for days and days and spent hours on my coursework and made sure I answered every question the best I could.
