    Easy as pants compared to the Romance family. Very very little inflection, no pesky genders, very little use of complicated pronouns, no pluralisation, beautiful scripts and beautiful phonologies. I loves 'em
    Haha! No cases? What about verb conjugations? :puppyeyes: I remember when I started Chinese in year nine and there were no verb endings I was like :wtf: Japanese and Korean culture is so interesting too

    They do conjugate, but only for the tense, not for the person. Makes things SO much easier, trust me. Only one form to learn instead of at least six per verb. <3

    ICT. Teacher sucked. Work sucked. I sucked. A disaster waiting to happen. Glad I dropped it after AS. Phew!

    Haven't even started my a levels yet but I can already tell I will regret taking photography but there's no other decent choices in that block. -_-
    That's what I did; dropped it after about a week. Seemed like a lot of pointless work for something you can learn about as a hobby.

    French. So much harder than GCSE, and so different. The way A-level French was taught to me kinda destroyed my love of the language.
    Wish I'd carried on with history instead.

    I regret taking philosophy, I spend every lesson drifting in and out of sleep. Why did I think I needed a less-math-y subject why!? D:

    Not exactly the same, but after filling out a questionnaire at highschool and showing an interest in computing I was heavily pressured by the school into doing a new GNVQ in computing instead of 4 other GCSEs (the first time the school was teaching it).

    It was completely useless and left me totally limited in terms of A level choices. We had a 60 year old geography teacher teaching us, when everyone in the class knew more about computing than her - I only just managed to get a pass, and none of the other 30 students even managed that, they really should be held accountable for that bull**** and misleading so much. Left me with a pass in a worthless subject instead of 4 more GCSEs despite taking up sooooo much time, great.

    Totally agree I dropped it after my first lesson it just seemed like too much work for something that not many people would even take seriously!

    General Studies - took it because I couldn't think of anything else, and we were all told that lots of unis were liking it b/c it shows that the student is a 'well-rounded' individual. Then BAM along comes the higher fees and shiz, now suddenly it's worthless, no unis accept it. It was piss easy though.

    History - AS was great, if a little boring, then A2 we were told that the topics were 'The Irish Question' and 'The USSR 1941-1991'. Needless to say I dropped about 2 wks in and took Sociology AS and A2 in the same year to get my 3 full A-Levels.

    Everyone seems to dislike psychology here, and it was exactly the same at my school. It has such a bad rep that they changed teachers, but still most people drop out after AS.

    Oh, and we got the old psychology teacher for sociology, which she has no training in. Fun times.

    Actually upon further thought, I regret taking Mathematics and would have much rather taken Pure Mathematics. I got As and Bs in core maths modules but only Cs and Ds in the applied so I think I'd have gotten an A if I'd done Pure Mathematics.

    Chemitry. Although in all fairness, it's only the least favourite from the ones I've taken...looking back, I chose quite well
