    If I were you I would just resit the maths modules next year, I don't know about your exam board but C1 and C2 would look so easy next year, most lot people get 90%+ when they resit, meaning you can do worse in the harder modules and still scrape an A.
    Also lots of unis aren't looking at AS results, or many just want a B in the subject you dropped so you should be fine to apply this year.

    Feel like maths would be easier with Bio and Chem because for History you'd have to remember 2 years' worth of content along with all of the stuff for your other subjects. Resitting the AS modules shouldn't be too bad because I imagine that you'd probably find them a lot easier after doing C3, C4 etc

    I would suggest maths if you think you might be struggling for another year. Also, you already have done one year of work whereas with history you will have to do it all at once :P
    I wouldn't consider re-sitting it, I would focus more on what's coming next.
