I am a second year student resitting my AS year. Last year I got a C in Ancient History, E in Economics and Physics, and U in Maths (Decision).
This year, everything has got off to a better start. I'm doing much better in all my subjects. I am now taking Economics (Again), Maths (Again), Geography and Early Modern History. However, Early Modern History is beginning to bring my depression back. Just thinking of walking into that classroom makes me feel heavy and sad, and the lesson is as boring as possible. The material is boring, no-one says anything in the class so its really awkward when the teacher asks questions, and after doing history for 3 years at GCSE, and the whole of last year, I am simply done with it.
If I explained my situation to someone, could I drop the History AS? I'm taking the other 3 into A-Level, and I already have pass-grade AS Levels from last year, so I wouldn't have any less than any other student.
It really is bringing me down so any advice would be appreciated. Thanks.

If you aren't enjoying it, and you don't think you'll do well/take it to A2 I see no reason why you can't drop it, so long as your school don't have any issue of you only taking 3 AS subjects.
Also, if you know what you want to do after A Levels, just check any courses you might apply to don't require 4 AS grades (most don't). If not, make your decision, and good luck!

Some schools allow students to take three AS subject but they have to carry all of these three subject to A2.
in your case, your school might allow to do so since you have:
1- good start in maths
2- good start in economics
3- C grade in ancient history
However, you might face three options from you school; the first one is you may drop modern history and carry in studying two AS subject, your second option that they might ask you to take another AS subject instead of modern history, or the third option is that you might be forced to take an AS subject during your A2 year.
