    I agree, but Further Maths is that extra mile challenging though because it's not just Maths, as you get to work with imaginary numbers and its all really weird
    At least from all the posts and what i've heard

    Chemistry & Biology.

    Was planning to do Medicine originally, but then swapped over to wanting to do History instead, of course this was at the end of the AS year when I had changed my mind, and so there were few options other than to carry them on... -_-

    Biology I'm interested in but do poorly in exams...

    Chemistry I find tedious but do relatively well in exams...

    So it's kinda bad for both lol...

    Computing. It turns out that despite being good at maths and being previously able to program, I am terrible at computing.

    Ive just completed the AS, I will continue to A2 as My college don't offer that many great A Levels so i'll just stick what I have. I regret taking it because I didn't know how much extra time I had to put it out of class because I struggled a bit

    It is interesting though!

    If you got a C at GCSE, I really don't recommend doing Maths AS.
    I got a B at GCSE then started A Level, and I found it almost impossible to keep up. That was even with having done some 'bridging the gap' studying over the holidays. Ended up getting a D. Everyone's different, though.

    What subject did you find rigorously difficult.
    Might it be anything from Chemistry, Physics or even Maths!
    Out of that list, I did Chemistry and Maths, none of which were rigorously difficult. There were certain topics that were tricky but none of the subjects has a whole were horrible. I most regret choosing BTEC Level National Award Health and Social Care. Some of the units were awful and so time consuming. Not all Universities accept BTEC's as genuine A Levels, luckily, my Uni does, but yeah, if I could do 6th form all over again (which I wouldn't!!!), I wouldn't have done Health and Social Care.
