    Consider dropping or simply entirely ignoring one subject, while concentrating on the other three. Also consider alternative methods of rendering the experience survivable. If you decide you cant do it, dont beat yourself up about it. You can always return to A level education, and once more theres no reason you cant enjoy your life without A levels. Keep in mind that many successful people lack them.

    Dont listen to the sheltered, naive members of this community who assume that education = success.

    Well I can relate to this as after 4 months of year 12 I dropped out yesterday, it was the hardest decision of my life so far but my head of year was really supportive, I took performing arts & classical civilization (which i enjoyed) and sociology and photography (which I really didn't enjoy) I also failed my english language last yeah so i was retaking it this year. My sixth form have let me drop out but they are still letting me carry on with my english gcse. I'm just saying that dropping out is not the end of the wold and there are options like the armed forces, college, getting a job, or there are jobs that train so you don't need qualifications, so honestly, leaving isn't the end of the world
