    Back in the end of year 7 we were forced to pick options.I picked Geography because i walked inside the classroom and on the board there was a topic about "china's one child policy".I thought Geo would be easy based on that little encounter (i was little back then.Stupid school made us choose so early on).Anyways,what were the reason why you did(or didn't) pick a subject for

    I picked drama because I enjoyed it in year nine. I ended up liking the written cw more than the practical.

    My reasoning for choosing A Level German: 'cause why the hell not. :rofl:*

    *for serious though I do actually enjoy the subject, but I literally have 0 reason as to why I specifically wanted to do that language at A Level.

    History's well respected though.I'm gonna do it at A level most likely,despite the fact i didn't do history at gcse

    That reminds me.I'm really good at English.History,in hindsight(now) i realise it was tailored for me.I would've been top of the class. Unfortunatly,we had to pick our options in the end of year 7 and my history teacher kept us behind every time afterschool and break.As a kid you valued these times.Now i don't really care,i actually work during break,lunch etc.Thats why i never chose history.Because of a mean teacher

    Picked Philosophy because I liked to argue about useless things a lot. Looking back, I should have definitely done Politics.

    My R.S teacher said to me " You're taking R.S as one of your options, right"? As I got a good test score in year 8- I lied to her and said yes because I felt bad, but changed it from drama in the end so she wouldn't catch me... I'm glad I don't take drama though- R.S is easier

    Aw that sucks It's alright though, unis tend to pay a lot more attention to your A-Levels than GCSEs anyway I didn't do History at A-Level but I think it's a lot more interesting than at GCSE
