    Chemistry. I was rubbish at it. Meant now I'm not doing medicine cos I sucked at it.

    If I were to choose my A levels again, I would still do Music Biology & Maths.. and my last one I would have a hard time choosing. Geography or History or Economics or Politics.

    Ahhhh!!!

    German. I was good at it but it was so mind-numbingly boring that I couldn't focus and therefore didn't do that well. The combination of constant textbook exercises (match number 1-10 with letter a-j, etcetc :yawn: ) along with constant listening tapes and not a lot of actual spoken German lead me to drop it
    And I despise it even more because it forced me to continue with biology. God damn plants.

    I seriously regret taking Geography. It was nothing like it was at GCSE, in my opinion so much less enjoyable and interesting (mostly the Human side of it). I ended up dropping it after AS.
    I just wish I had have taken something like Chemistry instead.

    not because it was extremely difficult but regretted taking psychology... JUST LONG! Too much to learn and kinda takes all the interesting stuff out of it when you just have to memorise things and not actually have to understand it. Should have done music instead

    Latin. Why oh why did I take it? I don't even like it that much. Sure the literature is interesting, but the language lessons bore me to death as its just tedious note-taking. I guess I picked it because I got an A at GCSE. And I now have little motivation, so whereas I'm on track for As in Maths, Physics and Chemistry, I'll be lucky to get a C in Latin. I'll count down the days until I can drop it...

    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 ¬¬

    erm... most of them? haha.
    Started out in Year 12 doing AS Biologu, Chemistry, Maths, Music and General Studies.
    Took until the day after the deadline for dropping subjects for me to decide I really needed to drop Chemistry so had to keep at it and ended up failing both exams cos i hated it so much xD
    At A2 I hated maths, ended up scraping a pass and getting an E overall.
    If I'd have known about the college I'm at now and their FE courses I never would have done a levels but gone straight there to do National Diploma in Music and Music A level instead :/

    German, but I dropped that anyway.

    A couple of months ago I would have said sociology and theatre studies, but I've been able to use sociology in my literary and cultural theory essay (yay, marxism) and next year I'm taking a module called 'Writing for Performance'-which incorporates a bit of the knowledge I gained from theatre studies.

    German. My teacher was good and I came out with a high B, but it really wasn't my type of subject and I hated it all year. I wish I'd taken maths instead.

    I am the queen of regretting a-level choices!
    In year 12 I took biology, chemistry, maths, fm, and Latin, with the intention of studying medicine at uni. Fastforward a year and I realised quite how crap I am at science and dropped maths and chemistry. It took a mixture of hard work and begging my school to let me do it, but I ended up intensively studying English lit. and History, subjects which I find much easier, and MUCH more enjoyable. My only regret now is not dropping Biology at the same time as the others. A-level biology was dire...
