    OCR Sport, incredibly mind-numbing and it isn't even an A level, something that I was unaware of last year. I have dropped it now and I feel free.

    I can't say that it was difficult and I only finished it at AS this year.

    But IT has got to be the most mind numbingly boring A - Level ever created by human kind - although I expect this may have been beaten by anything with 'English' in the title had I taken one of those.

    i took an iMedia diploma in lieu of doing Further Maths or Chemistry (cause at the time I wasnt interested in Chemistry and my sixth form didn't advertise Further Maths so by the time I knew it existed it was well into the first term) cause I thought it would be "fun". Wasn't difficult, just a complete waste of time. In retrospect I had so little foresight, really should have actually properly researched it and did Further Maths, would have been so much better for my uni prospects (although I still got a place to study Physics, the subject that I love, so it all worked out in the end!)

    Thinking about it I could have done History or Music which are two things I enjoy much more than idling about making crappy computer games and graphics (which is what said media course entailed), but yeah. Oh well.

    I regretted taking maths. I was good at it at gcse, and was encouraged to take it at a-level. But i failed it miserably.

    Chemistry, did anyone take this subject ignoring the good career prospects?
    I would have taken it even if I never wanted to do medicine. Mainly because after you revise and think you know everything you feel like a Boss. Until you get your results.

    Physics on the other hand...

    I enjoyed the subject, but out of all of my subjects, AS English Literature definitely was the worst. Perhaps it's due to the teacher I had. It's a shame because as I've said it was enjoyable! I'm going to drop the subject for A2.

    Maths. It was so easy at GCSE that I thought I was good at it, but its just that GCSE maths is a joke.

    I Just couldnt get it, I found myself confused all the time and although I still (for some reason) enjoyed it i never did well, ended up with an E at AS but i knew i was dropping it from around November, thats how bad i was at it!

    Maths. Only did it because my school wouldn't let anyone do Physics without the Maths to back it up. Ironically, the Physics helped my Maths if anything.

    I love English Lit, but my AS course was horrific. Wish I'd checked the content properly!
