    Haha exactly the same reason... then I realized I hated Art A-Level and was struggling with the workload simply though lack of motivation and I actually looked into some Architecture courses... what the students were saying about all nighters... no social life... crits etc just put me off completely... then the job prospects afterwards are just plain depressing to say the least.

    Looking back I don't even know why I wanted to be an Architect... I guess the pressure of having no idea what I wanted to do got to me and I picked somthing I thought I'd enjoy and be good at :/

    So yeah... scratch 7 years of hell to be unemployed with a tone of debt... I'ma do Languages... much easier, and I get to travel :cool:
    .....exactly the same reason :|-------------^

    I FEEL YOUR PAIN. I'm doing maths, further maths, physics, and art and design(Fine Art to)

    Art takes up 90% of my time. Spend more time on it than on Further Maths and it leaves me with no time at all to do Physics. ....but that's also because I have terrible time management skills..:|
    ahhh i did exactly the same as you for AS, plus business &economics!
    i started failing art because of the pressure fmaths was putting on me!

    PLUS im going to art college so i defo didn't need maths AT ALL let alone further!

    Geography. Out of all the different uni courses I'm interested in, none require geography what so ever (but only found out after I narrowed down my career options). Also it is immensely boring, mostly because we do about population :yawn: rivers :yawn: and glaciers :yawn: if we had done volcanoes, earthquakes and the weather however, I think I would be taking far more of an interest and effort.

    I would of replaced geography with maths, but it's not my best subject so it would still be dropped at AS like I'm doing so with geography

    English Literature to some extent, wish I picked Further Maths instead as its more suited to my career path. It's so ironic anyway how I hate essays and yet I picked it. Dammit

    I dropped Maths within the first week of AS (I figured that copying the answers from the back of the textbook wouldn't help me pass :P) and switched it for Psychology - best decision ever.
    I wish I'd chosen something other than Chemistry too, a whole year of not understanding anything just to be rewarded with a U ¬¬
    That was the best choice ever, i'm trapped in maths now! I'm doing A2 and finding it boring and hard I wish i stopped last year but everyone kept saying you might as welll continue with it and I did :mad:

    hahaha i didn't take offence

    well i took offence when my school offered me the position instead of art prefect...
    but i guess it made art colleges notice me
    they all read my personal statement and went so... maths prefect... we've never had one of those before!
