    Hiya!
    So I'm currently taking Maths, Physics, Biology and Design Technology. Main aim is to get into the University of Kent and study Actuarial Science, meaning I kinda need AAA at A2. Now, the problem is, I'M FAILING BIOLOGY.

    Reason being, I'm more of a problem solving kinda person, In my mocks I got BBDU (B in maths, B in design tech, D in Physics and U in biology). If I had no done biology revision my physics would most likely have been a B or C.

    I don't really need biology at all, hence I'll be dropping it next year... But... Is it okay to just, fail it at AS? Like, say I got something like AABE/AAAU, would that be acceptable? To write uni applications stating I completely screwed my biology?

    Need some advice as I need to be planning my revision a lot better

    Thank you!!!

    Why must you be concerned over this, when Britannia will soon be conquered by me, it's only a matter of time...

    But on a serious matter, in my opinion and experience I find having notes in extravagant colours really helps as it just engraves into my brain
    also keep doing past papers AS MANY AS YOU CAN, until you get to the stage of "Oh another A? Easy "

    But with all the syllabuses changing and everything it's hard to do past papers, but I just simply cant get a good grade without sacrificing many from my other subjects just trust me, so what's the best thing I prioritize?
