My sixth form has a policy where if you got a certain Av. GCSE Score then you have to take five AS Levels.
I want to drop Critical Thinking. It's a big waste of my time... I learnt writing to argue in primary school, ffs. I'd rather spend the time gained from dropping it (an amazing two hours) working on my other (more demanding) subjects. I didn't like Crit. from the start but recently a guy who bullied me at high school moved into my class and I just cannot stand to look at his face... sounds childish, but it makes me want to punch things.
Is there any hope of persuading them to just let me drop it and do 4 AS Levels? Or, if it comes to it, what's General Studies* like?
*Assuming it's just as straightforward as Critical Thinking if there really is no way around dropping a subject.

thats stupiddd. at my 6th form, you have to talk them into doing 4. my other friend doing 5 had a right battle on his hands.
tbf, general studies is pretty easy. i did cope level 3 in year 11 in just over 3 weeks because i did nothing for the rest of my lessons. its sooo easy, just a matter of being bothered to do it.

don't turn up to class, or the exam, simple..., uni offers wil be based on three a levels (in most cases, including say oxbridge and medicine) so it doesn't even matter if you dont get the last one AT ALL
