    Hello everyone!

    So, I'm currently in grade 10 and am going to sit my IGCSE CIE exams this upcoming may and June of 2016.
    I'm a rather good student, and last year I had all A* in my final exams, so the future didn't really seem to bother me that much. Until now.

    This year I dropped ICT (it wasn't an IGCSE course, just a subject to fill in the schedule) and decided to do Additional Mathematics. I'm good at maths but it still requires a lot of work.

    My problem is history. I never enjoyed the subject, I always found it boring and studied it only to get good grades. This year I got a new teacher who is terrible and I really detest this class now. I'm not motivated to study for it whatsoever, and I feel like my performance in the exam is going to be rather poor. I already take one humanity (geography), so I'll still have one after I drop history. The question is, can I do it and then take triple science? I'm taking double science now but find it quite easy and I would enjoy triple science more.

    TL;DL - Can I drop history IGCSE and do triple science instead (I'm doing double science now)?

    Help would be appreaciated!
