Hi! So I got my AS results somewhat recently. Here's what I got.

Bio - A
Chem - A
Math - A
Physics - C (unit 1 D, unit 2 B, unit 3 A)

I'm definitely retaking physics unit 1. But I was wondering if I should drop A2 physics cause I didn't do physics at GCSE and A2 any subject is pretty difficult.

The course I'm looking at for uni is medical genetics at Sheffield. The typical offer is AAA but I don't have any extra curriculars or stuff like that and I don't want to lose out since they get 7 applicants per place.

Will having an extra A level help? Or is just an AS level good enough to give me an edge?

bro dont drop physics just because u didnt do it in gcses, the only thing i remember from gcse physics is moments and efficiency, if you want to drop physics make sure u have a good enough reason, or keep it

I'd drop physics, purely on the grounds that you're clearly not as good at it as you are at the others.

Well, I got a C at it and all subjects become more difficult at A2. I just don't know if those are 'good enough' reasons to drop it
