    im currently studying A levels in Biology , Chemistry and Psychology and the Welsh Baccalaureate.
    I have had an offer from Cardiff uni to do biomedical science by achieving either an A in Biology and chemistry and a B in psychology OR an A in biology and chemistry and a pass in the Welsh baccalaureate
    In the January exams I got A in biology and chemistry but a C in psychology so I'm ment to be resiting in the summer , I am also on the way to pass the Welsh Baccalaureate.
    Is it worth my continuing with psychology, I detest it and can't see my self putting in enough effort to get a decent grade.
    Should I drop psychology now as I will get accepted if I do well in biology and chemistry regardless of psychology?

    You should ring Cardiff before dropping psychology. They gave you the offer on the basis of your UCAS application. So, if you drop psychology, they could withdraw or change your offer.

    If you drop psychology and don't tell the university, there will be issues with matching your exam records with your application on results day.
