So I'm interested in doing American Studies at uni, with a view to possibly being a journalist.
I'm doing 4 subjects (Government & Politics, English, Sociology and Media) so I can afford to drop one next year, although I'd prefer not too.
Politics I love and am doing quite well in it so I'm not dropping that.
English is sort of a must for me so I can't drop that.
However, I'm not enjoying my Sociology or Media lessons, both due to the teachers I have. I don't feel like they actually teach. My Sociology 'teacher' just reads from the board (on the spot may I add, clearly having done no preparation beforehand). My Media teacher is just appalling in everyway.
Assuming both teachers are doing A2 next year, which should I drop?
Thanks for the help

Have a look at some Uni entry requirements. Most degrees won't have any compulsory subjects, but they may list subjects they'd like you to have. Check if anywhere you'd like to apply to doesn't accept any particular subject - is media the same as media studies? Some places aren't big fans of it, but combined with "traditional" subjects it's fine. General studies is the biggest offender here.
If your potential universities don't have any preference between your choices then just pick whichever you prefer/think you can do better in.
