Should I drop an A level? watch

    • Thread Starter

    Currently I do biology, chemistry, maths and Spanish. I have had some serious ongoing extenuating circumstances for the past 3 months or so which has affected my subject grades quite a bit, especially maths. This was unfortunate because my maths teachers weren't great and it was already the subject I found most difficult. I recently changed maths sets and have enjoyed maths a bit better since, but my mock didn't go very well. Im starting to think I would be better off concentrating on the 3 that I'm better at. Would not having maths hold me back when applying for biochemistry/pharmacy/medicine at uni?

    Biology and chemistry is enough for the courses you want to study, you don't need maths. In my opinion, 3 good grades are lot better than 4 average.
