    So you may of noticed ive mad about 2 a level related threads in the past 2 weeks proving to be so stressful!

    I handed in my application to my schools sixth form the other day putting my options as Maths, English Lit, Economics and French... only thing is i'm not sure I made the right decision LOL.

    Im happy with all of them execpt French as im doing it for GCSE and just find it quite boring and dont like the thought of writing WHOLE ESSAYS in french for A-Level, and I feel so bummed i didnt choose a science!

    I feel like changing to do Chemistry or Biology. I prefer Chemistry and am doing better at it but TSR has made it out to seem like such a hard subject and I don't wanna end up getting bad grades. Biology I like but i just can't really get my head aroung the LONG answer questions.

    Also doing Chemistry or Biology keeps my options open for a science related degree.

    So basically, would I be right to want to change my mind?
    Which science Chemistry or Biology!?

    Help please!

    You know what's even harder than Chemistry? A subject you aren't at all interested in studying.

    If you think you'd enjoy it more, drop French and do Chemistry instead.

    Why don't you wait a bit? You can change your subjects easily until you actually start Lower 6th and even then you can change fairly easily to the october half term. Chill and see how you enjoy the rest of GCSEs and your results in those subjects.
