    It could be anything. From the subjects you chose to a silly prank you pulled (or failed to go through with) to an opportunity you feel you missed. Post your regrets below, I wanna hear them all.

    I wish I'd done subjects I enjoyed rather than forcing myself to do something I thought was more employable (or rather would lead to more employable degree areas). I would have had better grades if I'd picked with things I liked and was naturally good at.

    I regret deciding to stay at my school sixth form - worst school ever!
    I chose philosophy because my friend was doing it and I didn't know what else to choose.

    I wish I'd done subjects I enjoyed because then I would have done well in them, I wouldn't have restarted the year and I would be going to University this September instead of next September. I just can't force myself to work hard at something I don't enjoy.

    I actually had an awesome year in Year 12, because, for the first time, I let my hair down at bit, trusted myself more after getting good GCSEs, let myself spend more time tending to my friendships and falling in love and prioritised the subjects/work I knew I need to focus on and believed in myself enough to not work myself to the bone.

    Those of you who drove yourself crazy over GCSEs - if you get the grades you wanted (whatever those may be) don't be afraid to trust yourself! I overworked myself massively in Year 11 and could therefore relax a bit in Year 12!

    The previous years, I regret limiting myself with regard to having a social life and my hobbies in order to work. I did as well in Year 12 as Year 11 with less work - I worked hard but I worked smart.

      I wish I had done 3 ASs rather than 4 because I hated the 4th one from the start and it impacted my history grade due to the exams being on the same day and time, and I want to study history at university. I also wish I didn't waste my frees on eating and talking whilst I could have been catching up on homework.

      I hated that my sixth form was catholic. It really did take the absolute piss considering I'm an atheist.

      I should have chosen maths like I was going to, then bizarrely changed my mind when finalising the choices.
