What A-levels are you doing and are you planning on going to university?

I loved studying the subjects i did at A-level even though they were very challenging at times (Biology, Chemistry and Spanish). Now i'm studying zoology at uni and im enjoying it so much. Ive found that i actually want to go to lectures in the morning instead of dreading them which is so different because i used to dread going to school.

You just need to find what you love learning about!

I didn't enjoy a-levels for MH reasons and the art teacher basically bullied me but I wouldn't have changed the subjects I did. I'm happy with what I chose and what I achieved.
My degree is ok but I don't love it or anything. I chose it as it's more of a generic design degree that could get me into more careers rather than a more narrow but interesting thing like illustration. I hope to do a master's in illustration though after I've got my bachelor's.

I am studying maths, chem and physics. I love maths and as for the other two, I don't enjoy them but I don't hate them either but I used to hate them with a passion, especially chem. I suck at all of them and I only chose them because I want to be an engineer and my motivation to study is my fear of failure, humiliation + disappointing my parents ;-;

I think it's a really common feeling tbh. At least almost everyone Ik hates A levels. All of their subjects.

Did you enjoy the a levels you did/are doing?
I did Biology, Chemistry, Psychology, EPQ, and an AS level in Religious Studies.

Looking back them now that I've finished I absolutely loved the content we learned in all of them because I just love learning new things tbh. However while doing them I hated Chemistry and EPQ. Chemistry was so difficult for me to wrap my head around and took a lot of effort to get the grade I got, during the year getting these constant failing grades was just soul crushing because I was trying so hard and actually found the course interesting. It was just the pressure of exams and my own standards that got to me. For EPQ it was purely and simply the fact that I hated my teacher and he was also one of the reasons I hated Biology. He was a mean, heartless bully that had no concept that we were stressed, under a lot of pressure, and that some of us were struggling with mental health issues on the side.

If you are at university are you enjoying the degree you are doing or did?
I love my degree! (for the most part)
I've chosen a very specialised biology based degree so this means in first year I have to do more generalised biology, most of which I don't find interesting. However the modules I did this year that are about my degree were so good and I can't wait to begin specialising next year!

Personally I'm finding university easier than the devil called A levels - made me stressed for no reason
I did psycholy, economics and politics (dropped stupid history in year 12).
I found the topics fairly OK but boring and basic content especially in psychology and politics. If I could go back I wouldn't change my a levels because I suck at maths and sciences and social sciences are my strongest.

2. Currently at uni I'm studying Bsc Business Management and marketing where we cover accounting, international business and computer science, which means that after graduating I can enter several sectors just with 1 degree. I love my degree since it legit allows you to go into anything... Oh and not to forget the amazing internships abroad that are offered by the careers deprtament.. This year I'm going China!!!! Yay.

Biology,chemistry and maths.I applied for a biology degree.I absolutely hate the mechanics and statistics modules.As for Chemistry I have never gotten anything above a C mostly U's and D's.Chemistry is absolutely soul crashing and has no redeeming qualities in my opinion there is nothing I personally find interesting.
