    I switched from maths to geography last week, and i'm really regretting my choice of geog. My teacher is so boring, as is what we're studying (coast). I just can't see myself doing well in the exam on this topic.

    I love my 3 other subjects, which is why I'm thinking it would be a good idea to drop geog and use the extra time studying for them and working towards really good grades. I can already see myself getting a poor grade in Geog.

    Would having only 3 AS put me at a disadvantage?

    You could do it, but it would just mean that you would have less UCAS points to put on your form and if at the end of the year, you didn't like another one of your subjects, you couldn't give one up.

    nah, not if you do good in all three, most uni's only ask for three, unless you're like the rest of tsr who think its the end of the world if they dont get into cambridge.

    Lol I remember that AS module; rivers and coasts. I got 97% but it was ******* dire.

    Can't you swap Geog for something that you'd find easy?

    Dont take a subject if you see yourself failing especially when you just started, seriously think about your future. 3 AS levels are fine btw
