I'm just starting my A2s and I'm at the stage where I have to decide which subjects to carry on with. At the moment, I'm doing Politics, Economics, History and Spanish but I'm a bit worried the workload may be too much, and I've heard lots of advice telling me to focus on three. But the thing is which ones do I do? Ideally I'd like to do 4, but if the workload is too much I'd rather drop one. I'm definitely doing Politics and Economics but the other two I'm unsure about. History is my favourite subject and we're learning about Germany 1900-45 which is really fascinating but because it's a hard subject I may not get an A (what I'm aiming for). However I have a good chance of getting an A-A* in Spanish but I don't really enjoy the subject.
Firstly, I thought you HAD to drop a subject at A2 anyway? Where I go, it's 4 AS levels, then you drop one for the 2nd year. I'm not sure if that's compulsory but maybe you could check it out.
However, I'd say it depends on the entry requirements for whatever you hope to do at uni (if you're going). E.G, if you were to do a degree in Law, most if not all universities don't require specific subjects, only specific grades; with the exception of General Studies, most don't accept that. So if the entry requirements for what you want to do, are AAA, if I were you I'd pick something I was confident I could get an A in. But if you think you can get an A in History by working your backside off, then go for it! Also, I always find it easier to do well in subjects that I enjoy, it means I don't have to constantly find some inspiration or motivation, because it's already there for me
