    Physics D: And I suppose Chemistry as well.

    Why oh why did I think I could be a vet and not look at other possibilities? I just wish I had found BioMed before year 12 and fell in love with the course before I chose my options

    I did Bio, Chem, Phys and Japanese for AS. Then dropped Japanese. Wish I had taken P.E or Psychology instead now

    Nothing I'd drop tbh, I WOULD say philosophy&ethics and then take psychology but if I did that then I'd probably have to revise more than two weeks before the exam.

    And let's face it. That ain't happening.

    English Language, not because of difficulty though, because I didn't enjoy it, it bored me after a while, and I just couldn't be bothered with it by the end.

    English Lit.. I only did it because I wanted 5 AS levels for an ego trip. What a waste - still, decent b with very little exam preparation, and I've simply rehashed an essay from earlier on for coursework. So not too bad, although still I should've done 4 subjects.

    I wish I hadn't dropped economic after AS. I used to suck at it in the beginning, but did pretty well in my exams

    Physics , cos i hate the practicals always get crappy grades in them, I love the theory though and do well in it.
    Exactly the same...at AS I got two full mark written papers but it ended up being my lowest A because of the practical...I ended up messing up the electric station up so much it took my teachers 10 minutes to put it back the way it was supposed to be before the next person could use it .... repeating the practical this year..not that it will help much
