    I really want to do Drama but my sixth form is not doing it. I thought they would run it because at least 4 people want to do it. I didn't want to apply anywhere else because of the reason above and that i feel comfortable in my current school. They proposed I do an EPQ (extended project qualification) but literally all drama teachers are leaving. I have no idea what to do and i can't just do two A-levels. Someone help? I know I should have applied somewhere else and I regret it :~(

    Hmmm...are there any other subjects you might want to do instead? Having 3 A levels is very important, I presume you school would make you choose another...
    Alternatively you could ring up some other local schools on results day asking if they have places - many y11s and offer holders may not decide to go there!

    I'd like to work with the environment hence the reason for picking Geography and Biology, but if that doesn't work or I change my mind (like the countless times i already have) drama would be my plan B.

    To go on and do Environmental science or geography at uni, i really only need bio and geog, so I want the other a-level to be something I have a passion for which is drama (kind of like a "just in case" plan)
