    Exactly the same feeling as me after my triple biology afternoon. I always knew it would be hard though so I'm just going to stay with it, keep up to date with homework and try really really hard. If you do that I'm sure you'll do great.

    The step up can be pretty daunting at first and most people struggle a bit. At my school you can drop subjects for up to a month, so if possible keep going for a few weeks and then make a decision.

    does anyone know any useful books to get for AS level biology (perferably ones approved by AQA, seen as my year is doing a new specification it has been hard to find)

    My college is not letting me drop biology - QE. Is that normal. Even though I see no way I'm going to be able to pass it. How would I be able to convince them, that doing this was a bad decision?
