Can you drop a GCSE in the middle of Year 10?Watch
Its the middle of May and I'm doing my GCSEs.
The problem is I REALLY want to change one of my options. I want to change from Fashion to preferably Catering or Photography.(Or anything else) To be honest, I really have no idea why I chose Fashion. I wanted to pick a 'fun' subject, but i really hate it and I suck at it. In year 9, I picked Sociology, History, Fashion and Geography. I picked most Humanities because I am considering to study Law in Uni. (But thats not really the case). I am reeally hating fashion and its getting on my nerves. We only have about 5 girls in my class and they don't take it seriously. We have a new teacher and she doesnt seem to be a great teacher. The problem is I asked my tutor if it possible to change but she said there is no chance. I want to talk to my headteacher but I dont think ill be able to. Im reallly stressing. Pleasee help? Advice? thankss (p.s, im new hehehe)
But hey, don't stress...work hard. get the grades you need.
Just stick with it, your grade in it won't matter once you get to A Level and it's a contrast to your other subjects
I always thought that Fashion would be a soft option but apparently it's really highly regarded. Or so I'm told anyway.
But really I'm sure it won't harm you dropping it.
I was able to drop music in the april of year 10 (teacher was just awful, which is annoying because I love music) and was able to pick up geography. So it is possible.
It just depends whether you would be willing to put a lot of work in, and whether the school would allow it.
You should ask if you want to seriously consider changing. The worst they can say is no.
Don't change fashion it is considered a "hard" subject along with science and maths and most universities love it on a GCSE result!! If possible, keep it at A level, creates a strong profile for jobs in law, dentistry, engineering, medicine etc.
You can easy drop it. But why bother? Suck it up, move on, get the work done, get the grade. Laugh at the lazy ******* who will spend their lives sponging off their parents or on drugs.
They might let you drop it, I've heard of people dropping a subject at GCSE when it's not for them. Though, I've only heard of people actually switching subjects in the first term of Year 10 at the latest. Starting Photography or Catering GCSE now would mean you probably only have a year to complete, which they may or may not let you do. The only way you can truly find out is by speaking to your tutor or head of year. Good luck whatever happens
