    English Language. Beside like, General Studies, it's the most tedious, uninspiring and - in my school at least - poorly taught subject I have ever come across.
    I can't wait to drop it next year.

    Gen. studies is like that in my school. Even most of the teachers who teach it don't take it seriously, with the exception of the deputy head of 6th form. Then she wonders why we don't revise for it.

    THIS. AS English Language grrr. I dropped it going into A2. In August on results day last year I found that I was 1 UMS off an A. Not best pleased after I'd spent so long revising the rubbish it's spec requires. Because I'm a perfectionist I have submitted my coursework though to bump it up :rolleyes:

    At AS I took Chemistry, Biology and Psychology. I put no effort in and failed Chemistry and Biology and found them to be tediously boring, decided to resit the year and replaced Chemistry for Geography and for some reason redid Biology

    ...Turns out Geography is the most boring subject ever and is ruining my chances of getting into a good university. It also turns out I love Biology and got a comfortable A in the last exam.

    It would have really helped me get into a good Biology course with Chemistry on my side. A C in Chemistry would be miles better than a C in Geography
    ...Can't help thinking what would have happened if I'd retaken Chemistry...
    probably hating it and kicking myself I didn't take Geography... typical me

    negs? but, but why? :cry:

    Law...Its not the subject itself. Its just the fact that there is so much to remember, maybe if unit 1 was shorter, and a little bit easier. (OCR)

    Politics...Not enough interest in politics, only picked it because one of my lessons was clashing with law and the other group was full. I had no choice but to drop law or the other subject (media). Not looking forward to the exam.

    Physics. The course is so boring, and challenging (for me, even though I got an A at GCSE level and loved physics)!

    Further maths. I'm good at maths, but not a genius by any stretch, and I should've been more open minded to the other sciences, espeically biology. I don't even want to do maths later on, I want to do history :| Completely irrelevant to me!

    Geography, I think it's possibly the most boring subject every. There really is no skills involved, just how many facts & figures you can remember and if the case studies you know come up on the day.

    I got A* for my French at GCSE, came out with an A at AS-Level, working reasonably hard to maintain it, but christ almighty I loathe it so much now. Counting down the days until my exam and freedom. I only took it because I'm good at it and Languages look good on an application.

    Maths is cool, I'm on a C for that at the moment, targetted a B, got A* at GCSE too, it's a simple subject in my eyes, you just need to learn how to do a question and the same ones come up \:

    Psychology, applied to do it at University, I find it reasonably interesting at school but of course would prefer to specialise. First year is probably going to be dire as most of it is recap since you can go study Psychology without an A-Level in it ._.

    General Studies AS was a total joke, but then when Southampton said they would accept it at a B, it's srs business.

    I dropped Geography after AS, I regret ever taking it, Biology would have been much more appropriate to go with Psychology. Only really took Geography to go on the field trip.

    In general, it's annoying that I have to actually try at A-Level. Oh the joys of GCSE coasting and the unpleasant smack of reality of ALevs.

    English Literature.

    Despite it being my highest grade, I hated lessons - they were soooo boring. Admittedly I skived about 50% or the lessons and slept in the other 50%. I wish I'd taken Classics instead.

    Also, Latin. The school persuaded me that an individual IB Standard was the equivalent to an A-Level. Far from the truth, once I realised the futility of it, I just stopped trying.

    What subject did you find rigorously difficult.
    Might it be anything from Chemistry, Physics or even Maths!
    Maths A2. I don't have enough time to dedicate to it so I'm struggling and I know I will do come my exam in June. I wish I'd listened to people's advice that I didn't need to take 4 A-levels.
