    Music :/
    It's rediculously hard, sure I'm a grade 6 musician, but the theory is disgustingly complex, up there with Fmaths and chemistry. Decided to take it as a 2 year AS so I could get A/B in it. DON'T EVER TAKE IT IF YOU'RE READING KIDS.
    Unless you've been playing a classical instrument for 3+ years.

    Philosophy of Religion and Ethics - although not necessarily because i hated hte course. Sadly, it got filled with people ethinking it was a doss, which it really wasnt, which made the lessons drag rediculously. Bored out of my brain surrounded by chavs and stoners. Fun.

    Haha - I was going to take Maths and the assistant head of 6th form told me something to the affect of "you're going to want to blow your brains out". Hahaha I saved myself from taking Biology as well after having a word with my Biology teacher.

    At first I regretted English, but it's grown on me. if I had to choose, it would be Sociology because IT...IS...SO...BORING.

    Maths... I hate it. I only did it because my sixth form leader said I needed to balance out my subjects as the other ones are all literature based. I got an A at GCSE but find it soooo hard and boring! I go from discussing the meaning of life to quadratic equations :/

    Film Studies: took it because it was my dream to become a screenwriter. The only time screenwriter was mentioned was when the teacher praised Shane Meadows's This Is England script. Completely misunderstood the subject, even when the college open day teacher said that all aspects of film making would be covered- yeah ****ing right. Completed the first year, dropped it afterwards- big disappointment.
    Ahhh, if only A2 and AS coursework was swapped around, I'm just finishing writing a screenplay for coursework :rolleyes:

    AS sociology - got talked into it when I had my induction at college as it was apparently 'linked' to geography. Spent a year copying word for word notes from a textbook on really boring topics when I could have done a more challenging and interesting a level.

    I *was* going to say Biology, but in all honesty- if I had, I wouldn't have the memories fro the lesson that I now have! I just wish I'd taken A Level English Lit at that point instead of doing two years of a Science degree, and THEN deciding I wanted to do A Level English haha...!

    Turns out I wasn't very good at it.
    Managed to just about pass the AS-Level, dropped swiftly after second year, and English Literature took its place :P
