    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!!!

    Maybe talk to your school and see whether it would be possible not to take your biology so that you can focus more on the other subjects. Then prove that you're able to get AAA if you drop Biology? Your teachers will probably be able to give you better advice, particularly your Biology one as they won't want a bad result to reflect badly on their department..
