Highly contraversial comment I'm sure... but most subjects in terms of their content are pretty boring. What makes them interesting is a good class with nice people, with a good teacher.

I didn't think any of my subjects were boring. Well, there were some bits I didn't like, but I enjoyed most.

That's the good thing about A-levels though, you get to choose what subjects you do. All the subjects I chose were enjoyable because they're things I've always been interested in. I'd rather choose something that I like rather than something that 'might' be good in the long run.

Yeah, same with me. If you choose subjects you don't really enjoy, then you'll get bored quickly and won't be motivated to work in them, I guess.

I didn't know that about the income thing, but that'll make the next year of ALevel maths more bearable, as I don't really like it, but had to do it to be able to do economics at uni.

Maths is just a useful subject and qualification to have...so worth sticking out with me thinks (not that I'm not planning to drop it for college :P)

Mechanics 2 frequently reduced me to tears however I found A-level maths really satisfying because although it was hard I could do it in the end. Its boring to just do an easy subject and succeed. U need a challenge every so often.

Maths Alevel is definantly challenge, but you're right it is doable, and the challenge makes you feel well satisfied when you do well in it.

I have always asked this question and have never received a proper answer for it. Where exactly do you need all of the trig stuff and algebraic fractions unless you want to become a teacher?

Engineering for trig stuff I reckon..

Chemists probably use a lot of algebraic fractions with all their mols and particle thingys

I think it's just to show that you've got a mathematically zound mind, as if u can understand that stuff, you can understand most maths.
