    I don't know about your school, but in mine most AS students got bad grades in the first term - it's just the jump from GCSEs. A grade students were getting Ds, etc. I would say carry on, and if it's still really bad after next term, then maybe consider dropping it then. Generally however, there doesn't seem to have been problems at my school with students having 3ASs - they just got more frees

    Stick with it if YOU are going to work at it. You need to judge whether it is worth it or not. I know it's a massive jump but at the end of the day it's your future and the teacher may be right or wrong. You gotta know how determined you are to fix up your grade for Chemistry.
