    History - Because I have always love History, was good at it at GCSE.
    Law - Wanted to see if I actually liked Law, plus thought it'd be easy. Teacher is great, but the content is torture (well, the AS syllabus was)
    Business Studies - Because I was good at it at GCSE, was a doss subjects... I hate it so much.

    Wish I'd taken four A-Levels, and totally different ones too (apart from History) because that combination of A-Levels isn't very good and I don't enjoy 2 of them much.
    Doesn't matter much now any way, can't change it... hasn't really hindered me from doing what I want to do at University.

    Physics Chemistry Biology and Economics - Took the 3 sciences because I found them interesting took economics because it keeps things different, I find it more of a chilled out class where I have the chance to throw in my opinion unlike science where it is right or wrong.
    Dropping physics next year because I'm loosing interest and it is becoming really hard.

    Economics - I just thought it would be interesting which infact was. Maths was at the very minimum in the course though Really taught me how to write a really long essay. Completed it last year fortunately

    Law - Friends inflenced me to pick it up & i ended up doing it & I've been gettin really good grades in it. AS was interesting & decent but A2 is really time consuming and the amount of cases that has to be memorised is unbelivable. Expecting an A overall in August (hopefully)

    Govt & Politics - Just to get more UCAS points lol. I had no interest in the course at first but im really enjoying it now.

    Sociology - Same reason as picking up Politics

    Financial Studies - No reason to be honest. Easiest subject out of all.

    Was so confused about what career path to go into when picking these subjects. I would suggest that you maths if you looking to go into any maths related degree/s in University. I made a mistake of not picking up maths at earlier stage & I regretted it for a little while as I was recently rejected by 3 Unis for not having done maths to study Economics in Uni. However, I was delighted when my 2nd choice Uni offered me a place

    English - Because, I like the fact you can discuss so many things about books and stuff, it's very interactive, well the lessons anyway.
    Media - I took that as a fourth option, but I'm glad i did, it's now part of my career aspirations
    Graphics - Because I liked it at GCSE, and i'm sort of a creative person. And at the time it was what I wanted to go into. S

    All my A-Level's were mostly based on creativity, at the time I wanted to go into graphics, it was soon after a university event that made me realise, I like this as a hobby, not a career. So I decided to go into Communications and Media.

    English Lit- sort of liked it at GCSE.

    French- wanted to learn a language.

    Economics- interested in it and like it.

    Maths AS- only one left in that option block that was reasonable and thought I would do it so I had more degree opportunities, but instead it was just boring.

    - Didn't want to do a science or language so the above is what was left. Prefer essay subjects as well I suppose, but it wasn't particularly because I was interested.

    I also took Drama and Maths but dropped them both for different reasons.

    Maths - Dad sorta forced me to, but I was happy to take it
    Economics - Planning on doing it at University
    Geography - Love it very much!
    Biology - Either Biology or sociology, so thought Biology would be a better a-level to do, and less essays.

    Pretty happy with my choice

    I've chosen to take next year:
    English - because it is seriously amazing and I :love: it. The reading looks really cool, awesome teacher, it's what I'm best at etc
    History - because it's really interesting, essays are my strong point, I've been getting straight 100 UMSs at gcse
    Philosophy and Ethics- because it's interesting, I love the debates, I love reading about philosophy etc, I can't wait to move on to Plato and things instead of the "some xns think...others think" form
    Biology - because I really want to take a science (I love science, I can't believe I'm dropping the other two :eek:) and I find Biology the most interesting/easiest. And Chem/Physics teachers are so bad in my school we haven't even covered 3/4 of the syllabus, when we only have 4 lessons left.
    EPQ - because a long essay sounds very fun :yes: - I like the fact you can go in depth. I think I will do it on something English related

    Aye, you should be ashamed. ASHAMED.

    English Lit - it's lovely.
    Chemistry - it's also lovely. Especially Organic Chemistry .
    Biology - :heart: molecular biology. And anatomy.
    Physics - love it. And it has maths in it. You have to love maths.
    Maths - see above
    Fine Art - it's just an awful lot of painting. Excellent.
    French - lovely language. Though in May, come my oral exam, I feel I'll regret this...

    @Shanti: I'll forgive you for your omission of Physics/Chem/Maths; you made up for it with the Eng Lit and History
