    I'm in yr 11, so i haven't taken my exams yet, but I would hands down drop history in a heartbeat if i could. THE WORKLOAD/HOMEWORK/REVISION IS TOO TIME CONSUMING and the question style in very particular, very much like english. Plus, i have a crappy teacher who is 23 and has no experience.

    I wish I had taken History at A-level instead of English Literature or Sociology.

    I wish I'd taken History at GCSE instead of Music. Singing was more of a hobby than an academic venture for me and I love History now on my Access course and the research skills developed from it. I also would've chosen Product Design over Food Technology looking back, mostly because my food teacher was useless and PD was more "artsy" than anything.
    I also wish I hadn't taken A-levels straight after school and gone into work or an apprenticeship somewhere instead, as I wouldn't have wasted a year of my life taking my AS levels and not turning up.

    wish i'd not done media studies and art at GCSE ...instead taken physics and ICT which would better suit the career path i intend to go down, that being engineering. There is also an engineering GCSE which i knew nothing about at the time...not sure if it's a new thing...wish i could have done that also!

    I wish I'd taken art or drama and not German, especially not German since that was the one I spent the most time on and still got a poor grade. [s[sigh[/s]
    Should've gone to the college I'm currently at instead of doing a year of AS and then moving, but you know...

    I’m actually very happy with my subject choices for GCSE and A-Level. I may have done Economics but there was a timetable clash unfortunately.

    Wish I'd done a history GCSE instead of attempting an engineering course and having to engineer myself off the course altogether.

    I would have liked to have continued art at GCSE, but I wouldn't have changed any of my other subjects to compensate for it (I chose French over art and am doing languages at uni).

    At A-Level, I'd probably not do Environmental Studies and have chosen either Sociology or History instead. However it was good that I didn't do history because everyone failed it so...

    But both are waaaay behind me now.
