Yesterday I got my AS results and well they were horrible;
maths- e (c1&c2-U s1-D the board was edexcel)
biology-e (section 1- u , section 2-d the board was edexcel)
history- b ( unit 1- D unit 2-c) the board was aqa
English literature- b (both sections- high b's) board was OCR
( I will be retaking all the exams I failed in)
I am finding it so hard in deciding whether to drop maths or biology. In AS biology I was capable in memorising all the content but I found the exam technique hard so I did badly in the exams, and in maths I found that if a section clicked in my head I could do all questions for that section but well a lot of the sections did not and that brought my grade down a lot. Now I'm not sure if I should drop maths or biology because I find both hard and but both equally interesting. In terms of it helping me in the future I want to do a English lit. Degree and then a law conversion. Would anyone say that maths is easier than biology in a2 or not?

Looking at that it looks like science and maths isn't your thing because you did a lot better in History and English. Therefore my advice is drop both and pick up something else in the humanities because that seems to be your strength.

Jesus, drop both and study another humanity as they seem to be where your strengths lie. E really is hard to improve on and you shouldn't do anything you're going to struggle with in the long term.

Maths never gets easier. I would drop both and go for another humanities subject
