    Does anyone else completely, totally and utterly regret taking Psychology?

    I do. I hate it so much. It's so boring and tedious.

    Which is weird because it's the only A-Level I can remember really wanting to study for years.

    Plus I need at least a B. Which I highly doubt will happen when I hate the subject matter so much.

    A-Level Psychology isn't structured very well. It can become boring, especially if you don't like the subject.

    I'm the opposite to you, I wasn't sure I'd like it when I started studying it, but now I absolutely love it! But all the boards are different, and I'm doing the Welsh one, which I think is well structured.

    Hope you do ok

    I'm in the exact same position as you!!! It has become very boring for A2 and ther'es so much to remember. And i also need a B to get into my firm uni choice grrrr

    A-Level Psychology helps to provide a fundamental understanding of core approaches to theories and research. The subject also extends it's teaching to research methodology and statistics as a way of obtaining such psychological data.

    What subject would you have taken if you had the opportunity to go back and re-apply?

    I hated everything that was set in A Level Psychology, but luckily for me I had the initiative to read around the subject- and it's from my own, extra work that I realised I wanted to study the subject at uni.

    I wish I had applied to Medicine, hence I'm doing grad entry. Failing that I would have done neuroscience.

    Regret? Every single day.

    No going back now though so just got to stick it out and do my best in A2, which btw is 100x harder than AS which back then seemed like a real challenge. Oh how wrong I was.

    Luckily I don't have to do AS THANK FECK.

    I just need 5 A Levels for Uni. If I could go back I'd choose Law.

    Totally regret wasting my time with Media too.

    I want to go to university in Canada and for some reason they ask for 5 as a minimum.

    Business was the biggest waste of my life. I could have included everything that year within a days worth of reading.
