    Im currently in yr 12 taking biology, RS and IT but im doing really bad in biology (i got a U in my exam in january) and i just cant be bother with my next exam in may since ive already missed my practical (due to salmonella.) and my teachers have said they dont think biology is for me.
    so i was wondering if i drop this course, when i go onto yr 13 to do my A2 courses for IT and RS would i be able to pick another subject to do as i was wanting to take history. but that would mean i would be in yr 13 on my A2 course but taking a AS??? would this work as I need to take three lessons to fill up my education hours but i cant cope with biology??

    Is an extra AS hard to balance with three A2s?

    No.

    Many people do 4/5+ full A levels, you can make the comparison.
