    I'm doing Biology, Chemistry, Physics and Philosophy&Ethics (R.S) at AS level but I DESPISE R.S. I'm having panic attacks due to it because I don't know how to revise it, I don't understand any of the content and I'm just genuinely terrified of it now lol

    It's so different from my other subjects in terms of how to study it, the content and just layout. Science is a clear answer subject, as in you're either right or wrong. R.S is completely the opposite! I'm just struggling with it so much and I don't know what to do.

    I know every school is different but idk I thought I'd just ask, in case anyone has dropped a subject mid year. Also I was going to continue with bio, chem and physics at A-Level and so I would've dropped R.S anyway. I'm planning to do Biomedicine at uni which also doesn't require R.S.

    Thanks!

    My friend dropped one around this time and it was no problem. Definitely just speak to someone and explain your reasoning. I can't see why they wouldn't let you. I dropped the EPQ like a week before it had to be handed in

    Haha that's a little reassuring. Thank you! I'll probably ask them about it when we go back to school next week.

    Yes but double check with your college, if they have already paid your entry free to the exam then they might attempt to compensate that from you.

    I don't think it's a good decision considering we're one month before the exam, but it's entirely your choice.

    You might be able to, depending on your school. However it is really close to the exams so what you could do is do the RS exam and then leave it and after half term in May, continue with your other subjects. But talk to the school because you might be able to leave it within a week. But usually schools pay exam fees two months prior and create timetables so it could be possible that they may charge you, highly unlikely though.

    Yeah I know it's one month before the exam, but I'd rather have only three AS's but with relatively good grades rather than 4 AS's with lower grades and R.S probably being a U or an E.

    And yeah, we've already got the timetables so I'm unsure as to what would happen there but I'll probably just ask.

    I understand why you want to, it's entirely your decision
