    English Language. The teacher put up posters for us to analyse every lesson and never marked them, we watched the Reggae Reggae Sauce Dragon's Den clip as it was a 'linguistic masterpiece' and analysing texts whilst naming about 50 different types of verb and their effect on an audience was my definition of Hell. Needless to say I dropped it before the first half-term.

    I don't regret taking maths, but I'm not enjoying it and don't think I can drag myself through another year of it for the full A-level. I debated keeping it to get four full A-levels but I think I'd rather devote the time spent in maths to the three sciences next year instead.
    drop maths! not many unis even look at a fourth a level (if they want ABB and you get BBBB some still might not accept you) and unless you have a natural talent A2 maths takes a lot of extra time! you need to learn 20+ trigonometric identities just for C3 by heart so I'd say just leave it

    The only reason I really debated keeping maths on is 'cause I've considered engineering as a career. But yeah, you're right, I'd rather put the maths effort into getting three really good grades. Plus apparently we do mechanics next year and I struggled enough through that in physics [having to resit it ], so off it goes. I thank you

    yeah mechanics is just as physics but harder so it does get quite difficult
    good luck in with whatever you choose

    English Lit. I love English but the marking frankly is a shambles.

    History. There's a ridiculous amount of work required and it takes up so much of my time, especially now at A2.

    I guess I regret taking Biology.

    All that interesting stuff I memorized and for some reason I can't remember any of it, it seems like a waste.
    In contrast, I can remember most of the stuff from the English and Humanities subjects I took.

    I wish I had taken History instead!

    For me it was AS-level Maths, I just about managed to scrape an A (80.3% recurring, woo!) after SO much work (doing the Statistics module felt like it was two subjects rolled into one). The workload was intensified even further through having a not-so-brilliant teacher in comparison to another class who had the teacher who's credited with being the best teacher in the school (the majority were hitting above 90%), who I would've had if I had of opted for the Mechanics module. Had to drop it or I would've driven myself to an early grave. Raging! I've began recently wishing that I had of chosen Spanish instead so I could have carried on with 4 A-levels too. I like to complain...

    Drama
    Loved it in GCSE but at A level we got a new teacher, didn't like the people in my class and they plays we did were extremely dull
    Dropped it but was too late to pick up another subject :/
