    For my AS results yesterday I got an A in maths and business studies, and a C in german and textiles.

    My textiles result surprised me the most because I thought based on my full marks coursework and an easy exam, that my most likely grade was an A. Turns out I failed the exam (which was a shock to both me and my teacher - we thought it was a great paper).

    I'm now a bit stuck as to what to drop. I want to do maths with finance at Uni, and my original plan was to drop german and take on a further maths AS in y13. This was not recommended by my head of year. I just don't think that textiles really fits with my other subjects, but I enjoy it so much and would be sad to not continue it next year.

    Any advice?

    Im in a similar postion i got aacd in classics, history, biology and chemistry. But i wanted to do biological science or zoology at uni and need 2 sciences but all my teachers recommend taking history.

    catwat99Textiles does seem like the odd one out so in my opinion that would be the logical one to drop if you plan on going into maths with finance. You also don't need to do a further maths subject as a normal maths subject is probably sufficient. Have you thought of not dropping any? If you enjoy textiles and think you can handle the coursework alongside your other subjects then go for it. It may be a nice stress relief from the others.I finished with 4 A levels with Art being my stress relief and a bit of fun along side 2 sciences and maths.
    If you want to do a biological science or zoology (both great degrees), I'd think classics and history are relatively close sop there isn't an odd one. It's up to you in which one you may like to drop but aim to get your sciences at B's to improve your university selection
