    In addition to my school's compulsory GCSE subjects (Maths, English Lang, English Lit, RE, Biology, Chemistry and Physics), I took Geography, ICT and German as my 3 options. I picked geography because it was my favourite subject, and German because we were encouraged to take a language, and I didn't really enjoy French (the other language option). I also took ICT because I didn't like the look of any of the other subject options

    At A Level I took Geography (because I'd enjoyed it at GCSE), Geology (because I thought the course looked really interesting), Environmental Science (because it tied in with the other subjects), and ICT (because I'd found it easy at GCSE and didn't like any of the other subjects on offer). Geology ended up being my favourite subject, and now I am doing it as a degree

    French but then I was forced to drop it
    and erm...<cough> CiDA <cough>

    I chose seperate science cause I find science interesting and intrested in pursuing a career in it, Art I originally thought was gonna be fun but now I'm considering pouring bleach on my sketchbook as my coursework is non-existent, RE my school is forcing me to do, CiDA I was also forced into doing when I originally picked Computer Scoence, as for French everyone had to drop one subject and because I was like on Ds in French I chose to drop it.

    AS Level:
    Coming soon..
