    Before GCSE:
    Drama- I love to act, but we didn't act. We just played games for three years.
    DT- I always used to cut my finger in woodwork, and I hated my textiles teacher with a passion.
    PE- everyone else had to do it through their GCSE years, but I got signed off at the beginning of Year 9 because of medical reasons. I hated PE anyway. I spent my PE lessons bored out of my skull for three months, then spent two years doing chemistry.

    After GCSE:
    ICT- so painfully boring, plus the teacher was absolutely dreadful!

    I hated art. It was one of those lessons that you have to be good at, or else it's utter torture. I just couldn't make anything look good, none of the techniques used by the class looked anything like what they should once I got my hands on them. So I was glad to give that up. My brother got an A* at GCSE and I've always been jealous of the fact that he's so good at it! I'd love to be creative in that respect.

    I couldn't wait to drop the Sciences. I was flagging on my last legs with all the technical mumbo jumbo you learned in them by the time the last exams came around. Managed to scrape straight B's in the Sciences but god I was glad when I could focus on English

    English literature
    Biology
    RE
    Welsh
    Art
    Business Studies

    Of all the lessons I do now in terms of.content all I like is maths;physics and chemistry... :lol: and geography and french... Which funnier enough are all my a level options!

    I dropped art as I couldn't do it when I wasn't in the mood so it became impossible to continue it. And didnt really need it as it would have been my 14th GCSE.
    HOWEVER, one subject I was glad never to do EVER again after GSCEs was Physics. I'm good in Maths but I absolutely DETESTED the Physics -_-

    ICT, hands down ICT. Waste of my time, waste of my life.
    I learnt nothing and it just stressed me out with the stupid amounts of coursework.

    Design and Technology, I'm useless when it comes to it. On another note I really regret not studying Drama at GCSE, it was damn fun!

    Spanish because I absolutely hated the way that it was taught and the teacher, even though I actually really like languages.
    I did Spanish for GCSE because at first I was really interested in learning the language, but then we got a teacher who didn't know anything about Spanish so she hardly ever taught us, all she did was tell us to draw posters/design menus with Spanish words on them. So I gave up because when I went to an AS Spanish taster session before I started college, everyone in the class was so good at it and I kept getting all the questions wrong. I'm amazed I even managed to pass that subject.

    Economics - Hell. Why did I pick it? Because I'm a blithering idiot
    Art - Stress. Some much work.
    P.E - Didn't even do it as a GCSE We were forced to do and we always did football. There are other sports, you know.
    ICT - Waste of my time. Was forced to do it. They told us we wouldn't be able to get into college or university without it...Lies

    What is it you dislike about French? I love that subject
    I was lucky though with Welsh, we didn't have to take it, just had to do a two week course or something at the end of Year 11 to say we could speak "basic" Welsh.
