    I'm doing maths,fm,bio and chem. I want to do economics a level aswell because i want to do it at uni but my college hasnt got any spaces left in Eco and wont let me drop Biology as I have to do 4 AS levels.I'm planning on still doing economics A level by myself. Does it matter what grade i get in biology as level? Will unis care? Will 5 AS levels be manageable? Im gonna drop bio at the end of year 12

    There's nothing too difficult about 5 As levels. I'm doing 5 A2's and am not worried in the slightest.

    Just get your parents involved. You have good reasons. One they are forcing you to do 4 when you don't need it and then won't even let you pick up Economics. This is just setting you up to fail. Talk about how you want to study but your not happy and how its effecting you badly. If you kick up a fuss I am sure it can be solved

    I don't knw your situation but it depends if you want to stay on good terms with teachers and stuff. I would personally talk to a teacher I like and trust and ask them to help me. If not I would work hard in my other 3 subjects and do nothing in bio and sometimes even not attend. It depends how badly you want something though and what your willing to lose. This could also cause damage and give you bad reputation. You could just go into Bio and you enjoy it. You may be able to do 5 but we do not know your life situation so it is hard to advice.
