    So, I felt i worked very hard for my AS-levels. However, obviously it wasn't enough. I sort of thought i would get AABB minimum. Unfortunately , ABCC (Only one mark off A in chemistry, raging!). I originally had plans for medicine and it's what i've been focused on. However, i've accepted that AAA won't be possible even with repeats. My A and B were in Chemistry and Biology which i am keeping. However, i got a High C in maths and a middle C in physics. Shocker with physics! it's my best subject and i was getting nearly all A's in my tests with it. I don't know whether to drop maths or physics. I loved physics i think partly because i have a really good teacher and in general i was just bad at maths from January, i wasn't good at C2 or M1 (I know M1 overlaps with physics) and i disliked my teacher. I think i will repeat my AS1 physics module and my AS2 chemistry module. In your oppinion, would you keep physics or maths? I'm strongly considering a degree in optometry. Thank you.

    It sounds like you'd rather keep physics, so I'd keep that tbh if you don't like maths. Just be aware that there will be a bit more Maths in A2 Physics.
