    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.
    Did physics, wish I had done engineering...

    I wish I had never taken French. Should have put Politics or Lit in its place

    I chose mostly science subjects at A level that I don't really enjoy, especially Physics. I wish I had taken Politics, and maybe Economics. It's not the end of the world though, I think I can still get good grades and do History at uni which is my true passion.

    History. I gave it up after year 9 and am clueless about all but the most major events e.g. World war 2

    Hindsight is a wonderful thing, wish I'd done English Literature instead of Business, I was advised by the head of English to take Lit and Lang but Lit clashed with IT. Also wish I'd taken something other than IT, hated it for the last year of Sixth Form. Ended up on the right course now though

    I took geography, English lit, history and psychology. I wish I'd taken politics and sociology instead of English lit and geography possibly. I feel like a complete moron. Hindsight is a beautiful thing.

    I am happy with my chosen degree to start in September Msci physics, I have fallen in love with it for such a long time now. However I regret not having interest in other science subjects Biology and chemistry to be precise wish I took them, something tells me a solid understanding of them may come handy at some point, oh well I will just read about it. I regret not taking A level English lit too but not that much.

    I am starting to regret choosing physics at AS level. Talk about hasty decisions. I only chose it on the count of getting a B at GCSE

    Wish I took further maths instead of biology. Biology is such a bore, maths is actually really interesting.

    Wish I'd taken maths instead of Business studies. I basically took the wrong A level's, Got the wrong grades, went to the wrong university and would give my left testicle to go back in time and do everything the right way!

    I wish I'd taken chemistry instead of geography,
    I chose geography despite hating it at gcse (don't ask why 'cause I don't know either) , it started pretty good as I like physical geography a lot but now we're doing human which is pretty easy, but It makes me want to die inside a little bit
    and i'm considering doing a biology degree so I assumed chem would have helped, plus i'm more of a sciencey person anyways ^.^

    Medicine / Maths / Biology / Marine Biology.... The list goes on. It wasn't until I firmed my offer that I started to wonder if I made the right choice... But I think I'll enjoy my course all the same.
