Dropping an A Level subject watch

    • Thread Starter

    Hi, I have just started my second year of college doing 2 A2 level subjects and an AS.

    I studied 2 A Levels last year instead of 3 (as I already have a full A2 under my belt). But I had to pick an extra AS subject as students need to take 3 subjects into the second year (for the college's funding).

    I want to drop the AS subject, as the only reason I picked it was to gain entry into the second year. But due to the incompetence of my college, none of the staff are able to tell me how I can go about dropping the subject.

    I haven't actually attended any of the AS subject's lessons yet due to complications with my timetable (which are now resolved).

    Should I attend the lessons and explain the situation to the teacher? Which potentially means having to go to the class until I can officially drop it.

    Or should I just not show up to the class at all? Is it possible that they may just kick me off the course for not showing up? Although I'm not sure if this will get me into trouble with the college.
