Warning: this is a very long post lol

I'm really stressed and it's only 6 weeks into the academic year. I'm currently studying Mathematics, French, Religious Studies and English Literature. At AS I got:
B in Literature (Edexcel - LT1 = A, LT2 = D)
B in French (WJEC - FN1 = B, FN2 = B)
C in Maths (Edexcel - C1 = B, C2 = D, S1 = B)
D in Religious Studies (Edexcel - Foundations = B, Investigations = U)

Here is my timetable:
Monday- English, French, Free, Maths, Philosophy, French
Tuesday- French, French, English, Free, English, Maths
Wednesday- Philosophy, Free, Free, Maths, Philosophy, Philosophy
Thursday- Maths, English, French, Free, French, English
Friday, Maths, French, French, Maths, Philosophy, Free

As you can see my timetable is really packed, mainly because of the extra tuition I have to do in french.

The problem is, the philosophy lessons i have (i say philosophy when I mean religious studies) are only 1 on 1 because they are actually timetabled in the same block as maths so the rest of the class have separate lessons.

I really need to drop something. I was planning on dropping maths or philosophy in order to resolve the timetable issue but I really enjoy both lessons.
Although I feel like I am really lagging behind everyone else during my maths lessons.

But I also hate french. I don't think I am going to be able to coope with the speaking this year because it is an external examiner.

I want to study philosophy at uni but I have no idea which subject would be best to keep and which subject I can drop.

I'm so confused about what to do.

Hmmm... It's a difficult one!

I think if you want to continue to study Philosophy, I'd stick with it. It'll be better for you at uni if you've already got a good understanding at A-Level.

An extra language always looks good on CVs, so I'd potentially keep that too. Although having said that, it's better to stick with the subjects you think you'll get the higher grades in.
