So for my AS grades I got AAAD. A's in Politics, Religious Studies and English Literature. I got the D in History.
The thing is, the plan and ambition was to study History at University combined with Politics. All year pretty much I was progressing in History and towards the end of the year starting hitting A grades consistently. It really was starting to 'click'.
In contrast, I pretty much gave up with English Literature before my exam and accepted that I'll be dropping it at AS. I didn't read the whole of Jane Eyre, I knew about 4/15 poems we were required to study and compare with each other and I know I made errors in the exam; getting two characters in Jane Eyre mixed up and mixing two poems up. How I got an A is absolutely beyond belief. I was honestly expecting a D at best.
The why I felt like I did with English Lit is because I don't find much motivation or eagerness to study this. This presents me with a problem in what subject to drop... It sounds ludicrous to drop English for History when I got a D in the latter?
Also, lets say I study Politics alone at University, how much will that D in History affect by application? I guess it somewhat helps that I got an A in RS and English, both essay subjects as well.
TL'DR - I've got a passion for History. Was getting high grades. Wanted to study at Uni. I got a D at AS. - Was set on dropping English, gave up on it, I don't have much of a passion for it, I got an A at AS along with RS and Politics - Which subject do I drop?

If I was you I'd drop English. It's a lot more work at A2 and very time consuming. Also it may seem ludicrous to drop it as you got an A, however at the end of the day it's a higher amount of UCAS points for your application. I had the same problem when I did Religious Studies. In class and mocks I was getting As yet overall I got a C and considering I wanted to do it at uni, I was very disappointed. I just re-sat my module that let me down this year in June and overall I got an A and I am now off to uni. Honestly, go with what you have passion for and what you think is right and not what others think as ludicrous because you can turn it around aha.
