I regret not having done more GCSES- I only did 4 because I wanted to do other things informally without the stress of exams. But I particularly regret not having taken Spanish GCSE because then I could have done it at A Level and got much better at it. I also regret not taking History because then I would have realised how much I hated doing it! If i could do it over again I would probably choose all the ones I did, plus Spanish, History, Latin, Psychology, Classics, and English Lit I think

Urgh Preach, but for me, I'm trying to catch up on coursework and have been coming home afterschool doing nothing but painting, and eating. Why didn't I drop it when I had the chance

Art. It was an extra so had to work on it in my own time. :rofl: didn't have any of my own time
Too many other commitments

In the GCSEs I chose, I ended up getting A*AB in Computer Science, French and Drama. I don't really regret taking any of those, but I wish I could have maybe taken DT as well? I feel like my school didn't have many options, and only 3 of them just doesn't feel like enough.
I'm glad my school didn't make us take a humanity, though :lol:

Economics and German (ended up being both my lowest for obvious reasons) I had to do a humanity and a language and they were both not my thing (I'm more of a technological creative person)

I regret history, should've pick geography, I feel like writing based subjects rely on teachers alot for you to improve and since neither of my teachers did i'm currently struggling and everytme i ask a question i'm answered with sarcasm or mad to feel stupid, so factually based subjects are they way to go, that way you're not kissing anyones backside to get the grades you deserve

and health and social because it's not an actual gcse and it justs seems like a piss easy waste of time

Computer Science. I got a B in it, but only because I had to teach myself almost the entire course and because of my ability in Maths. If not, I would have definitely failed.

History - should've done Geography. Not a very essay-inclined person and looking back, I preferred the sound of the content of Geography over History (but mainly due to the awful teaching in year 10 that ruined History for me)

I finished my GCSEs a year ago, but Business and Communication Systems was absolutely dreadful. I thought it would teach me how to run a business, when really it was just IT + common sense.

Personally, i did history and geography and i found history way easier, in geography there was so much to remember and the teacher didnt teach well and couldnt control the class, but i got a* for both history and geography though
