    I'm doing AS geography and it's the biggest pile of ****e out there. I mean it might just be because of the syllabus we're doing, but I hate rivers, population etc. I'm going to drop it at the end of the school year, but what's so annoying is that at A2 we're doing the more interesting topics i.e. weather, volcanoes, earthquakes - everything I'm interested in on geography >
    So don't drop it!

    Oh, just Maths. I presume Biology and Chemistry would be slightly difficult(?) Some of my peers complain a lot so yeah.
    I find biology and chemistry loads easier than maths!
    I found maths alright last year, but I find I don't like it this year. I think it's because the school changed our maths teachers and I liked last years teacher, but not this years. ( also it got harder this year by quite a lot so my c3 mark went down)
    I got:

    C1 95
    C2 89
    S1 79

    C3 70 ( a big drop from other core modules)

    The teacher I had for S1 I didn't like as well. I'm not bothering resitting C3 because I only need AAB for uni and I think I'm pretty much nailed on for A's in bio and chem (hopefully )

    How do you find maths?

    Wow, awesome grades there. *sighs* Maths for me is a drag. I'm doing it for AS and before I started, I thought I could handle it. You know, top set student in years 10 and 11, A grade at GCSE, and then I started it and died.
    My January module, C1, I managed to get an A. C2 proves to be easier actually. And so I'm looking at a possible A/B in August. Statistics is awesome. It looks like an A.
    And then I am dropping it after AS because I don't think I'm able to carry it on at A2 level.
    Your C3 was a big drop. But I'm happy you got good grades earlier. I love it when I 'see' people who excel at Math.

    Ah, I think it's awesome. It's one of those things people describe as a "common sense subject".. and then you have the annoying bits. But all in all, depending on the level of your interest, it's quite an interesting thing. That could be essential sometimes.

    Business Studies - the content is so mind numbing and crap.
    It may be a soft subject, but I guarantee it's the most challenging subject not to daydream/fall asleep/get distracted in.

    From what I heard, Classics is the most boring subject in my college. She compared it to "History of Magic" from Harry Potter, whatever that might mean.

    I wish I had dropped maths, but I'd rather carry on with that than PE. I thought I was going to get an A in stats as I was getting good A's in mocks (around 88), but then the exam was harder than all the mocks and only 1 person out of 15-20 in our class got an A.
    The same kind of thing happened in C3, I was getting between 80-85% in mocks and don't know what happened....ah well!!

    BTW stats doesn't get any harder at A2, so if you carry on doing maths you'll probably find it quite easy

    I didn't find any of mine boring but really ended up disliking French because there was just 2 of us in the class with 2 teachers, alternative days of the week, and so it was so intense yet I wasn't doing as well as I could have! Both me and the guy doing it got A* at GCSE but B's at A-level. How does that figure with 1-on-1, supposedly good, tuition?!

    i did maths, further maths physics and geography. I think if i did business i'd have committed suicide. I'm currently looking into random business related jobs and reading bits and pieces on it and it's the dullest thing ever. Solving differential equations is my idea of fun as is physics and nature, so business just doesn't appeal to me

    Good for you though someone's gotta like it else it'd not survive as a subject

    Haha, yeah I know about Statistics being easy with mocks but tough with exams. It's crazy. So I might feel confident about it now but my exams might just shock me. Hopefully not though. Whew.
    Oh, in my school, AS consists of C1, C2 and S1 while A2 consists of C3, C4 and M1 so no Stats for me. I'm struggling at the moment, I would not like to sit through Mechanics. I haven't done my research yet but I presume it would be closely related to Physics? I don't know.

    Lol. It is a bit dull, I admit but eh. I love it still. It's my forte - so might as well do what works to your advantage.
    Oh, I dislike Differentiation and anything Calculus. Ah, Maths is a drag for me.
    But each to their own, I guess

    AS Psychology (As I dropped it after Year 12), seemed like we were just memorising facts instead of actually learning about real Psychology. Was a shame really cause I'm really interested in Sigmund Freud's theories etc

    Lol, that hit me like a punch with full force. But I think it's either your teacher or the other students. I understand that a subject could seem boring because people don't contribute (especially a discussion-essential subject like English Lit).. or the teacher just doesn't do it right.
    Or is it simply boring just because?
    Tbh I contribute less than anyone else in the class, discussions make my heart race (in a bad way!). But I don't think that's the problem as I never have participated in any class ever. The teachers are pretty **** though, and I have no interest in Victorian literature whatsoever. That's what the entire course is focussed on. :/ In my opinion, studying English tends to take all the enjoyment out of literature.
