    So I’ll give you some back ground information to understand my dilemma.

    GCSE’s
    6B’s in: English Lang, Maths, R.E, Biology, Chemistry and Physics

    3C’s in: English Lit, Business studies and History

    What I'm currently studying in year 12: History, Economics and Psychology.

    So basically I've moved house and need to finish my A Levels, but there’s one issue. The exam boards don’t match. So it’s pretty much certain I’ll have to re-start year 12, but I was thinking, if I'm going to start again why don’t I start new subjects ? I was thinking about Biology,maths, geography and sociology or something along those lines.

    So my question is, would it be wise to start new core subjects I haven’t done for a whole year? Should I just stick with the current subjects?Or should I mix my subjects? For example history, psychology and biology. What should I do?

    All opinions and suggestions needed.

    How far away is your new house from your current/ old college/ school?

    I guess it kind of depends. See what your AS grades are like. If there was subjects you really enjoyed and do well in then keep it. But you can swap some if you want to.

    Honestly wait until you've done your AS and got the results, but if you don't like the subjects at all just resist the year (Bio is awesome by the way!!)

    Do the subjects you enjoy and will get the best grades in.

    Take the advice of your old teachers and new ones. the fact you are considering new subjects gives me the impression you euther dont like or arent bothered about your previous ones.
