      For O levels, I took the core subjects, which I’m pretty sure were compulsory (Double science, which included Biology, Chemistry and Physics, Maths, English Literature and English Language) and then took French, Graphic design, Drama, PE and Geography.

      For A levels, I took Biology, Maths and Chemistry. I also did a subject called General Studies but this didn’t really count apparently towards University.

      GCSEs: Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Maths, English Language, English Literature, French, German, Food Technology and one more – I think Geography but I couldn’t be sure now it was so long ago! Also did Computer Literacy and Information Technology but that didn’t count as a GSCE
      A-Levels: Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Maths with Mechanics. I did an Art course outside of school but not for a qualification.

      My GCSEs were Art, Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Maths, English Literature, English Language, French, History and Product Design.
      And for A level I did Art, Biology, Chemistry and Maths.
      (My chemistry teacher told me to drop Art at A2 because it was ‘silly’ which only made me want to do it more).

      My GCSEs were Maths, Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Religion, English Language, English Literature, History, Geography, French. I also did IT but that wasn’t a proper GCSE.

      I took Biology, Chemistry and Archaeology at A-level. Like Kaitlin I also had to do General Studies, which was bit pointless as it didn’t count! I also did psychology up until AS level, but then dropped it because I didn’t like it.

      Archaeology was the subject I took for pure enjoyment – it was great!
