    I'm in year 12 studying AS french, biology, psychology, and maths and when I chose my A levels I thought I had chosen subjects that I was going to really enjoy but I could never really get into biology and now I've realised that I really don't enjoy it and I'm REALLY regretting not taking a different subject.
    I'd prefer to do further maths instead since I've realised that I really enjoy maths but it's too late in the school year now to switch subjects. At first I thought that if I stuck with biology and really tried hard I might start to enjoy it but that hasn't happened and now I find myself just waiting for the lesson to end.
    I'm really annoyed with myself for not choosing further maths in the first place since I had the right GCSE grade for it, I just didn't believe that I'd be able to do it, and it's really frustrating being stuck with something I really don't want to do, especially when the further maths classes are at the same time as the biology classes.
    I've thought about talking to my school but I feel like they'll probably tell me they can't do anything about it. Also, I think the maths teachers might think I'm being a bit stupid as we've just had mocks and my maths grade wasn't that great.
    Has anyone got any advice or suggestions?

    You could just do biology at AS then take another AS (further maths) in your A2 year?
