Don't bother. Drop it and enjoy the free time I say.
Even if you bunked off all year and just took the exam, even that would be a waste of time. To most universities any GS qualifications are completely negligable. Focus on your actual subjects.

I think you should drop General Studies and carry on 4 other A2s unless you actually genuinely enjoy GS - especially if you want to apply to top universities. I'm carrying on 4 AS's to A2 and don't envisage finding it too excessive, but I wouldn't want to take 5 even if one was a subject I could afford to skive the lessons for (bear in mind this could bring down your attendance & apparently if universities know you have low attendance they often attribute it to lack of committment). I just don't see the point in continuing a subject if all of the following apply: you don't like it, aren't 100% sure you can get an A/high grade in it, and it isn't held as a respected - or in some cases even accepted - subject by the universities you may apply to. Also in your case it might prevent you from taking a diff 4th subject which could benefit your application and which you would be more likely to enjoy
just my 2 cents
