    Since we've started a year where we only have to study the three/four subjects that we like the most, are you guys enjoying this year more? Are you enjoying all your subjects?

    Personally, I'm not really enjoying studying this year- the workload is really high and I'm not doing as well as I used to last year when doing my GCSEs.

    Yeah, that's true. I have seven maths/further maths exams this year and mock exams for my other subjects. But are you enjoying it more now than in GCSE years that you only need to study subjects you enjoy?

    What do you wish you choose? And, also, start revising now!! Is it a lack of motivation/lack of interest that is stopping you from revising or are you just procrastinating too much?

    ok. Is it just one subject that you don't like or is it all of them? Becuase you can usually drop a subject next year.

    I don't like either biology or chemistry, RS is interesting so I'm fine with that but I was told I wont be able to change any of them next year as I'm only doing 3 A levels and would need to carry on with all 3. Don't know if its true tho

    I'm in my last year of A-levels and at the start of the academic year wanted to drop out. I couldn't stand my subject choices and honestly I still can't. I dread having to go into sixth form everyday and despite the school day finishing at 3pm, I always stay till 5pm to do a bit more work and to try and help myself out a bit. Despite being in the sixth form for so long each day I can tell you I despise it! but hey, only 1-2 months left until exams and then I'm off to Germany with my girlfriend for a week and a half so I can't complain!
