I spoke with my Head of Sixth Form yesterday, about my low grades also if to drop Chemistry. I have a chance next Thursday to redo my three subjects which I got less than 35%. And I have to form to enable me to drop the subject, I just need to get my Form tutor & head of year to sing the form. I already have got my Chemistry teachers to sign.
Just need to find my form tutor, now he is in a lesson.


Am I making a mistake....? I hope not. My opinion is I will retake AS-Chemistry next year when in Year 13, aswell as 2/3 A2 Subjects.

I'd say it was a mistake taking it next year with 3 A2 subjects, but I suppose people (somehow) manage to do four full A2's... The option you're deciding on would be easier than that.
I might also add that in most cases, the extra AS (alongside three A2's) doesn't matter that much.
Whatever you decide, I wish you the best of luck.

4a2 subjects is a piece of cake, three 3a2s and the as is not that hard, it's really easy to adjust to the workload. though AS levels aren't that well regarded Chemistry, as thev hardest subject, is always recognised. it's definately worth doing. only wusses drop economics.

They may drop the subject if they find it boring.
