    Basically, I need some more opinions in this matter. The current four subjects I take are:
    - Media Studies
    - Film Studies
    - English Language
    - Modern World History
    (all currently AS level)

    The first courses, I absolutely love. The work is enjoyable, as are the lessons, and I don't mind sitting down to write essay's or an analysis at all. The work for MW History however, is entirely different. The work around Civil Rights is ok at best, but the work for Women's Suffrage is just painful.

    Whenever I go to write an essay for history I get a sudden feeling to go jump off a bridge, because I just hate it that much. All past knowledge from previous lessons also disappears and hides in my mind, so it takes me around 5 hours to complete 1 single essay.

    I've been debating whether or not to drop History, and keep just my three other subjects, and take all of them into A Level with me next year, but I don't want to act to fast. Which leads to why I signed up here. Can any of you offer advice? Would my remaining three subjects still get me good, respected qualifications at the end? Any help is appreciated here.
