    Hi there,

    I've been at my new school for just under 4 weeks now and have just started my AS levels.
    I'm taking:
    English Lit
    Maths
    Biology
    History
    I enjoy them all and have been recieving relatively good grades, until this week I had two maths tests, one I got an A in, the other I got a C/D in...I don't know if this is just subconsciously but my maths since taking the test had been very poor and I understand this is just the easy stuff, so I'm quite worried at how I'm doing poorly now.

    I've been thinking (even before the start of term) of changing maths to chemistry. I relatively enjoyed gcse. And recieved a much better mark than expected (better than maths even). My mums adiment though that if I drop maths I become a quitter.

    Help?

    Lol. When I started Maths I was getting a U in all the tests we did. I considered dropping it but decided not to, and ended up getting a B at AS. Maths really depends on how much work you dedicate to it. Practice makes perfect. So if you like Maths and want to do it, then don't be put off your C/D and just work harder. Chemistry is much more interesting though.
    Edit: Just remember -most peoples work ethic matures throughout the year, you'll find yourself getting better at Maths throughout the year.
