    I was unsure of what subjects to choose going into sixth form. I wanted English, Art and Further Maths, or Bio Chem and Further Maths. I decided on Biology, Chemistry, Art, Maths and Further Maths. About 2 months in I dropped art because I hated the teacher and it was far too much work doing 5 subjects. Worst decision I've ever made! I wish I'd chosen the more artsy subjects, and the only reason I didn't choose them is because I was worried about not getting a job in the future. Don't get me wrong I do enjoy science like, but I know I should have done art and English with mathematics. I'm really not looking forward to next year but I know my school will let me swap around subjects and maybe even do AS and A2 art in a year. I am a capable student so they are okay with it, but I wish I'd chosen eng/art from the start. Is there anything else I could do other than repeat lower sixth???thanks

    Yeah it deffo would have been too much work, but wish I'd dropped chemistry or something awk well at least you were able to, there's people in my school that wanted to drop a subject and the teachers wouldn't let them no matter how many times they requested it:/ but aye that'll be a bit less pressure on you I guess

    well in the xmas holidays i only revised for maths because i was so determined to do well but it didnt work out and now i have to revise everything from scratch for my other subjects,
    it does make me frustrated that i wasted so much time with maths
    but then i think no knowledge is a waste so what if im not going to be tested for it, its good to know stuff
