    French - got an E. I never learnt French in school and in years 10 and 11 our French teacher was off sick for 95% of the lessons. Instead we had supply teachers cover our lessons and everyone was messing around like kids in the playground. I really wanted to learn French

    You did extremely well to get a D in a third of the exam.

    I got a C in RE. At the time I just didn't see it as important. Actually, I still don't...

    Geography.Got a B on the coursework portion. A overall.

    I also feel like venting my frustration here about Biology. It was my strongest subject and the one I liked the most but only ended up with an 'A' overall. You may think I'm overestimating myself but you have to understand that I was only one UMS off an A* and what's more, I got 100% on both exam papers!

    It was the coursework that let me down-I got a B. The thing is, it was practically the same type of CW as the other sciences where I got 100% and 99% on Phy and Chem. I felt the quality of my Biology coursework was very similar to the others and when my teacher checked it, she told me it was A*. So, I felt there was no need for improving and went on my leisurely way, only to find out I got a low B when the moderator marked it(another bio teacher). I was like: :eek:

    TEXTILES . . . . DAMN YOUUUU!!!!!

    Thinking I was going into a subject where I could 'express my creative side' and develop gentile skills such as needlework and constructing dresses, instead it metaphorically flung me into a pit of depression and the complete inability to motivate myself to do anything. It nearly sabotaged my future.

    Failing ICT :P.. because having multiplayer game sessions in our IT class secretly were more important than learning "How to type in word" or "How to add two numbers together in excel and get an answer"

    Some people handed in pages and pages of work, while I handed in 3 half written sheets for the coursework.

    if you mean worst as in grade wise... it would have been english with a C, my main issue with it is that i have a tendancy to write long essays in exams and theres just not enough time for that... if i dont cover specific things then i wont get any higher than a c.... but at the time i thought this hindered my chance to get into uni (was not sure if it) so i redid it during a levels ... i had a high c for coursework which i was not allowed to redo unless i redid the actual subject (use it as one of my options), screw that.. i just did the exam... after i did the exam, my old (english) tutor told me i got an A overall... i suppose that means i must have absolutely smashed the exams :cool:

    since english became an A, my next lowest is art with a b. similar to english, i needed more time (for my portfolio, not the exam), i was working on a masterpiece, it was a pencil drawing of the westminster cathedral on an A2/3 sheet. i would have got an A or A* had i finished it

    i would have liked to keep the picture of the cathedral i drew, finish it and hang it up somewhere, but i cant find it in my portfolio, im sure my art teacher took it, with another student thinking the same... cheeky ***** >:|

    French. Got a B, but even that was due to profuse cheating in the reading and writing exams, and flopped the other two!
    Haha how were you able to cheat in the exam?
