    I'm in year 12 and to be honest I think I'm going to struggle with 4 a levels. I was doing Maths, Chemistry, Computing and Physics, but I'm finding physics hard and I don't think I've got much chance of getting a good grade in it.
    I'd like to put more focus into getting three decent a levels, as appose to four "meh" ones. I also don't enjoy physics right now, and I find it hard to work for things that I don't enjoy doing.

    If I dropped physics, could I still get into a good university? I'm not sure what I want to do at uni yet, maybe computer science, if that helps at all.

    If you only take 3 as levels then you might not have enough ucas points to get into a good uni. Is it not too late to change physics to an easier as? Even if you can't then i think it would probably be better to do physics unless you think you're actually gonna get a U in it, cos you might need the ucas points. You can drop it after as if you're still finding it hard.
