    I wanted to drop Physics earlier on in the year, it doesn't interest me and I'm not that good at it. I'm likely to get ABC(D/E) if i continue with Physics. If I drop it I'm likely to get AA(C/B) instead at AS level which I'd much prefer. If I'm allowed to drop it will there be any real consequences next year? For example when applying to uni. In the case I'm not allowed is just not turning up to the exams an option? If it helps I'm planning on doing Economics at uni so I can't see the relevance of Physics.

    Depends on how competitive a course / uni you want to apply to. I know that lse and ucl (for law) require a 4th a level, and I assume quite a few good universities will use this rule.

    Google the uni's you are applying to and check their policy
