    okay so i've sriously been considering dropping english lit as of very very recently but at my school, everyone was entered into the 2 year course unless they said they'd like to take the AS exam. We now have our exam timetables and i think its too late now to say that i'd like to be entered for my AS exam not to mention its half term week starting now and i've basically ruined everything for myself. Does anyone have any advice?? If i was to drop it at AS (while on the 2 year course) would uni even consider the mock exam grade that id get from doing a mock english exam this year? HELP

    No - you'd need an officially certificated grade in order for it to bear any significance.

    The entry deadline is the 22nd of February, so you do still have time...

    Hi, thanks for the reply, its just, its half term and also im wondering about the fact that if you do your mock type exams this year, would some type of grade be eligible to be sent off just as proof that you did it because at my school, the teachers have decided to do that for English but for other subjects, im not sure they are bothering to do mock type exams

    You should speak to your English teachers and see what they think. There's no harm in asking after all… just send them an email?

    The thing is, mocks will rarely show anything because, especially with English, teachers sometimes don't mark to the required standard. You would probably need a certificate from an exam board because otherwise there is no legitimate comparison between you and others who have sat an approved qualification.
