    I done chemistry,biology,maths,physics and german at AS was thinking of carrying on with all 5 to A2 but then ended up with 4As and 1B in Physics so this made me drop Physics. The biggest mistake I have ever done!! Physics is so easy, you don't even need to revise for it, you just have to get used to the concept and that's it, whereas biology you have to revise or more likely cram 1x10^10000 facts for the exams.

    I hated chemistry at AS! I found it hard to grasp any of it 9didn't help that I was surrounded by people that would talk about the answers loudly when they knew I was a lot slower than them) I had to teach myself a good half of the course because the way one of my teacher's taught it just didn't seem to work with me. I had to revise so hard just to get a C and then I failed to put enough revision into my maths and so that grade slipped from a possible B to a D =[ Dropped it now.

    Sports Studies. Fun, and I got a good grade, but ridiculously easy.

    History or Economics would've been a better idea.

    What subject did you find rigorously difficult.
    Might it be anything from Chemistry, Physics or even Maths!
    I regretted taking History, Biology and Home Economics.

    Did not regret Psychology

    I can't say I found any of them that hard though...
    I regret taking home ec because it meant I pretty much had to drop it in order to keep more academic subjects when I really wanted to drop History because I hated it and it was more work than the rest of my subjects put together. I also decided quite early on that I was a 'science girl' and couldn't be bothered with History. Also if it wasn't for History coursework, I would have got my first choice uni. Biology wasn't hard if you actually put the effort in to just learn and understand the stuff.
    Most people I know found Physics and Chemistry AS level really hard and most dropped Physics but a lot of them needed to carry on with Chemistry for their uni course. I don't think anyone found Maths hard but Further Maths certainly.

    That's weird- what exam board is that? I don't remember any 'case studies'.
    I liked psychology so much I applied for a degree in it but I was kind of already going to do that anyway.

    OCR, we have to memorise 15 psychological studies... as well as psychological investigations (which is basically knowing how to conduct an experiment)
    ahh, well that's obviously going to be loooads more interesting than what i'm doing :rolleyes: good luck with it
