    I wish I did AS and A2 Law in one year rather than EPQ. 5000 words to conclude basically a yes or no answer, urgh.

    Well, I took Chemistry last year and, in hindsight, I would have much rather taken R.E A level - looked quite interesting to me! Chemistry isn't however. Not one bit.

    History - I can't seem to write the correct way to get anything higher than C however I do enjoy the subject itself so I can't really complain that much.

    Chemistry - I can't get my head around the calculations involved at all revised so hard and still got a U in the second exam. I might as well have have just written my name on the paper and sat there for the whole exam time doing nothing. :mad:

    I did philosophy, politics, English language and re. I did RE over year 11 and year 12, half an hour a week, got a C. Not too shabby.
    I slaved over philosophy because I loved it. Got a C. I actually manahed to get one of every single grade on it:
    an A and a D at AS,
    so I resat the D and got a U,
    so resat again and got an E.
    Got a B and a C on the A2 papers.

    If I had my time again I'd do Philosophy, Politics, RE, 16th Century History and Sociology. Never ever do English! Horrific!

    Geography! Dropped it at the end of AS - found it so dull! I actually still enjoy discussing the topics in it though (like global warming, overpopulation, etc.) but I hated writing set essays about it where you just needed memorised points..

    Wow...which exam board was this?
    We're doing it with AQA and I love it. I find all the topics fascinating and I never just memorised points at AS...I just learned some case studies, statistics and definitions and then planned and wrote my answers as I went along. Got an A.
    I also have a brilliant teacher though so that helps too

    English Language by far!

    Most uninteresting subject in the world combined with ridiculous coursework. The stuff you learn at AS is a joke.

    Biology and Physics AS - Oy Vey...At GCSE I was decent at the sciences, but the A Level syllabi *****-slapped me.
    In hindsight I should have taken Economics instead. Oh well :/

    Economics -.-

    Told my College that i would fail the subject if they didn't let me drop it - they said it was 'too late' to drop it even though this just wasn't the case. Come summer, guess what - a nice big U greeted me and I strolled past the college head with a somewhat displeased, yet smug look on my face.
