I'm in a sort of complicated situation. The results I got at AS were:
A - Photography / B - English Lit / B - Geography / D - Biology
In my college, art subjects finish around March time. I didn't want to continue photography to A2 as I didn't think it was academic enough to apply to a degree course of English Literature - I still don't. I was also finding the workload too much in combination with all the study I was putting in for Biology. Those who wanted to continue to A2 started preparing work for A2 while I had more free periods to concentrate on my other three subjects. While I regret finishing Photography, I also don't want to continue it.
Despite this, I only managed a D in biology and I now really don't think the subject is for me. During lessons I was getting As, Bs and Cs. In the first half of the year, my teacher predicted me a B but wanted me to get an A. I then had a new teacher for the second half of the year who I didn't feel was capable and essentially self taught the latter few topics. Even then I was still getting B grades.
I realised when looking at exam papers that we had been given to practise were from the old specification - I found the new specification questions much harder, and the exam was no different. The universities I want to go to range from AAA-BBB but even if I double my efforts, I don't feel like an A, B or even C is possible in biology. I feel that I put everything into biology and clearly that wasn't enough.
My college requires a minimum of a D in each subject to continue to second year: I have achieved this, but don't want to continue biology or photography. What are my options now? Take an A Level in one year? Stay an extra year for my third A Level? Something else?
(AS) ABBD - exploring options?
