    Today's been really disappointing for me . I got a C in computing, E in Physics and U in Maths. I feel like starting AS again and drop either Maths or Physics and replace it with a much easier subject. Any advice guys?

    In all honesty I suggest that you do start your As's again to give you the best possible chance! However did you feel you had done that badly, did you know you found it difficult or just not put the work in?

    I agree with the other poster. You should just start again, and if you feel like those subjects are slightly harder then choose others, but also think about what you want to do in the future and what subjects you'll need for your university course (if you choose to go)

    Start again. Those three subjects represent a big step up from GCSE and you obviously took it 'too easy'.

    When you restart you'll have more motivation as you can aim for the goods unis (top 20) rather than saddling yourself for CCC. If you flunk them again, maybe it's the end of the road in terms of academia.

    Easier subjects would be Arts and Humanities but it entirely depends on what you want to do. If you want to be a scientist or a Mathematician, you really need your sciences in there.

    Best of luck and don't be too down. It can be hard for those haven't done so well when others are jumping up and down.

    Thanks for the advice, i found maths to be easier than physics and achieved a C for both subjects in my mock exam in January. I honestly do not know what happened.
