    I sometimes think to myself how much I would love to be studying physics at university. I just find it so interesting and I'm jealous of some of my friends who study science subjects. I blame my old school, in a way. I only achieved a B at GCSE physics, and I got the impression from my teachers that only the very best students would cope with it at A-level, so I was discouraged from taking it. Now I realise that that was a load of ****, as people develop intellectually at different speeds. Ah well.
    You're missing out tbf. Physics is excellent at uni

    I wish I'd taken further maths properly at A level rather than as an afterthought and only as an additional AS in my second year.

    I don't regret doing physics at university at all, but if I wasn't doing physics I'd probably be doing maths, geology or physical geography.

    Tbh I'm one of those people that would be happy doing a lot of subjects, so I guess I miss doing a lot. I don't really have a clear future plan ATM which is annoying
    I miss doing Biology, Physics , Spanish and also wish I'd done Economics.

    I seriously love my subject, no regrets. The only thing I would like would be the opportunity to take an elective course in history of medicine or some sort of history/politics/psychology/social science.

    Plant sciences, doing my third year project on paper science has shown just how interesting plants are and their many uses.

    Wish I'd done physics or history instead of chemistry at A-level, and also further maths.

    I like my subject but a part of me wishes I'd down a more technical, scientific subject because they are more employable generally.

    I really wish I could go back, I'd honestly change all of my A-level choices and my university degree.

    I graduated from a humanities course, but decided to study A-level Biology part time while working and I absolutely loved it. I really wish I did it in sixth form. I feel quite sad that I've just got a taste for it, but couldn't feasibly go on to study it at uni. It would certainly have been my degree of choice had I studied it when I was in school. Sigh

    So yeah if I could go back I'd do that plus Chemistry and Home Economics.

    I wish that I had studied French or Philosophy; I feel that Philosophy in particular would have really complimented my other subjects (English Lit, Psychology, Sociology and Geography) - and I would love to have done French to further enrich my language skills - I loved it at GCSE!

    I wish I'd taken Spanish GCSE. But because of some bizarre rule, I would have had to have taken French too and wouldn't have been able to have done ICT.

    I studied genetics at undergrad and I'm doing my PhD in genetics but I've always wished I could have studied earth science or geology.

    I studied media for undergrad but I've always regretted not doing the degree I was supposed to do which was classics. Now hoping to rectify that by studying medieval studies.

    I'm happy that I study mathematics, and I wouldn't change anything. I do wish I could carry on studying it after PhD (I am doing that at the moment actually).
