I'm in year 11, taking:
IGCSE Further Pure Maths
And that's about it. I'm confident I can get at least an A grade in all but the IGCSE further.
I don't like history. I like reading history books and whatnot but not the actual subject. Should I drop it? I'm taking enough GCSE's that it won't affect me that much, but it will take away my chances at the EBACC.
Should I just keep on focusing on STEM, since I wanna be an engineer, or balance it out just for the EBACC?I really don't like history, am unmotivated in lessons and never make any effort to do extra, unlike all my other taken subjects.
What do you all think I should do?
And I know this might not be the most appropriate section to post this on but I cant find anything better, sorry in advance.
Should I drop history/EBACC? Watch

Im in the same position as you I absolutely hate history with a passion because I just don't take any interest in the subject and the teachers don't help the situation. But since youve come this far in the subject you might as well keep it since youre doing the ebacc but it will be over in a few months! I know how you feel though that youre not even motivated in the subject but just put your head done for a few months and it will be over in a few months. Good luck X

But is the EBACC really even that important? I mean, all the sixth forms I have applied to don't ask anything about if you do or do not plan on having EBACC, and unis only look at how much work you can handle and how good you are at the field you choose.
A uni won't deny me a course for Computer Science if I don't have history, that's ridiculous.
And my school will sooner or later make me do compulsory classes in the mornings or afterschool, and maybe even Saturday when we get near to the end of the year. I'd rather avoid all that extra work.
