    sociology. although one of the easiest a levels you can take - it's just common sense and memorising names, but i do it on the wjec exam board, with a crap teacher and no revision tools online. depressed D:

    Wish I hadn't taken History. I loved GCSE and I enjoyed most of the AS topics but it was a massive jump from GCSE to AS and revised for it so much more than any of my other subjects. Dropped it after AS I wish I'd taken Economics instead, or Double Maths.

    I also did the AQA Baccalaureate during Year 12 as I was going to do Extended Project in Year 13, so had to do Critical Thinking AS as a 5th subject. Ended up doing AS Further Maths instead so that was a waste of time!

    I don't regret any of my A level choices but if I could go back to GCSE it would be Latin+RS over History+Geography....I seriously regret choosing those two cos they were so revision heavy.

    General Studies - was compulsory at my college, but none of the uni's I applied to actually accepted it as an entrance grade, same with the majority of my friends as well.

    Photography - did it because I wanted to be a live performance photographer & my careers advisor told me getting the qualifications was the only was of achieving it properly. We didn't even pick up a camera until 6 months into the course, the tutor was appallingly bad and all we did for the first few months was talk about why we wanted to do the course. Dropped it after AS year. Complete waste of time.

    I regret all the A-levels I took. With hindsight I should have followed my gut and took English instead of French and not listened to that twit of a teacher who advised me not to. Still, I managed to get my 2:1 in my chosen subject in the end and have finished an MA with a decent grade. So he can shove it.

    Chemistry!! Worst mistake of my life. Thankfully I dropped it after getting a C in AS. Now I'm in A2 and biology is going appallingly, after doing well last year I just don't know what's gone wrong

    Maths and Biology. I did really well at GCSE but did really badly at A-level.

    If I had my time again I would have chosen Law, Psychology, Sociology and Geography.

    What subject did you find rigorously difficult.
    Might it be anything from Chemistry, Physics or even Maths!
    I regret taking Psychology. I'm not very good at maths and science so even when I put in 100% effort, I saw very little improvement. I could follow things in class and do all the class work but I couldn't do the exams :/ I went to every revision class, had extra tuition from the teacher and extra homeworks etc but was just had no natural talent for it at all

    It's kind of helped with my degree (Eng Lit) because I already know different psychological theories but I do wish I could have done English Language instead. I wanted to do it at the time but the school scheduled Media, English Literature and English Language classes in the same time slot so I had to pick :O

    lol why are so many people getting killed by maths?

    If you study maths just a few days before exam then yeah you fail. It's practice practice practice more than any other subject.
