    Music. It clashed with my other subjects (Biology, Psychology, English Lit, General Studies) it was boring and tedious, and I unexpectedly found it much harder than GCSE music, which tbh was a bit of a doss. Plus it was completely useless :/

    Really, I did it, thought it was ok, looked easier than some of the other exam boards...
    Not for me - MEI Advanced Maths? It's called advanced for a reason hahaha, it's the most difficult. It's the only A-Level I genuinely have to work super hard to get an A in.....that could be because I don't pay attention in lessons. Got an A last year, but need one this year too for uni.

    Film studies...a lot harder than I thought it would be and yet not respected at all so a waste of a year, very stupidly dropped out of A2 because of it as I only did 3 subjects for AS

    How many banks did you have to rob to pay for your gap year?!

    ... Advice plz?
    None. I've been asked this SO many times and I even had it on my sig but I'll forgive you.

    I had a job for 3 months 29 hours a week which paid for round the world, and then I worked at Debenhams 30ish hours a week at £6 October-January and got way over £1,000 which paid towards France, Vienna, Estonia and Interrailing and I also got money for my birthday and christmas from relatives and my parents gave me some money to my french course when I was 18 (19 and 3 months now) which I'd been keeping safe for over a year

    I was also very meticulous and careful with my money and tried to choose off-peak dates to go everywhere... Estonia flights were only £10 return!

    I still have a bit of money left but once I book a holiday to greece and pay for living costs in Vienna I'll be skint again!

    Maths was a pain in the arse, but my school required me to do it in order to take physics. So I don't regret it.

    Also to all those moaning about English Lit: I know your pain. It's an exercise in hoop-jumping, damn AOs.

    Biology and Chemistry (at AS). I thought I wanted to do medicine but it just isn't me and I now want to do maths. I enjoy neither of these subjects nor will I need them for any offers.

    I really wanna do 4 A2s though so I'm wondering whether I should do a different AS+A2 next year. If so I wouldn't know what to pick!

    Maths -.-

    I actually loved GCSE Maths, so I was like, hey, I want to do Medicine, let's take maths! Bad Idea. I was not going to get above a C in it, so I dropped it in March, going to take AS Sociology/RS next year with my A-levels in bio, chem and psych

    Business studies. Was horrible. They told me there was 'not much' math involved. (I am terrible at all math). Turns out there were quite a few formulas you had to know. Needless to say I failed miserably and ended up doing a foundation in my undergrad subject. That has turned out well. But, if I could do it again I would not take business studies!
