    I'm doing C1,C2, S1 in January for first time. I am confident that C1 and S1, I will get an A, but C2, I'm find few topics hard such as radians...etc.
    I am thinking of dropping further maths as I think I am finding it hard. But I'm doing Economics and ICT. So If I do drop, then I only have 3 alevels rather than 4. Is that big issue for Unis?

    Should I consider dropping maths after the exams in Jan before I go onto C3,C4 and S2?

    If you drop maths after january doesn't that mean you'll only be doing AS maths?

    Most decent unis will want 3 A levels and 1 AS level. If you want to study something Maths related at uni then you should probably continue with further maths. But it depends how hard you find it tbh. Maybe get a tutor?

    Yep.
    See how the exams go, but bare in mind that radians are rather crucial to the rest of maths, and therefore you do really need to get your head round them.
    Personally I think you would be better off keeping it at least until the end of the year, because you will be better off with 4ASs and 3A2s, it does get better, and lots of different topics, you haven't currently done any mechanics which is fun.
