    Hi all, just for some brief background:
    I've just finished my first year of sixth form, obtaining 3As and a B at AS. I hope to do straight english lit at Exeter Uni, which traditionally offers A*AA at A2.
    My B was in drama, the subject I enjoy the most and feel passionate about. My final exam mark for this was a lot lower than expected, so it is planned to be remarked.

    My question is, should I drop drama or not? Dropping any of my other subjects is a no-go, so I wondered if it would be better to dedicate some time to a subject I love, or drop it and focus more heavily on my more academic subjects.

    Sorry for the length, thanks in advance for any advice

    I am in the same sort of position, my lowest grade was the one I enjoy the most however it doesn't have anything to do with my uni plans.
    I was advised to drop it over the other subjects but I have decided to continue with all 4, at least for the time being. This way I can see how I cope with the work load and can drop it if it gets too much.

    If you can see that taking all 4 subjects is harming your other grades you can always focus on the 3 more useful ones over the other one.

    If you like it so much, I'd say just keep on keeping on. Just because you got a B doesn't mean you should drop the subject!

    Keep it if you enjoy it the most. I think people do better at A2.
