    For my AS levels I got BBCD in film studies, physics, computer science and maths respectively

    I'll be applying to mostly AAB-ABB unis and for a marketing or management course

    I'm thinking the best option is to drop maths since that would hold back my predictions and I'd have to retake 2 modules

    Would it matter to unis that my subjects aren't really relevant to the course? Or are the grades what's more important?

    Also my predicted grades will most likely be one up so AABC

    Yeah definitely drop maths, you'll also get a lot more time to study for your other subjects because maths is especially time consuming

    Id drop maths.
    Like you say, its your weakest subject and the one you have got the worst grade in. And keeping it would mean doing retakes.
    If you are worried about your subjects not really being relevant for the course you are applying for- look on different unis websites to see what they say to put your mind at ease.

    I've looked at the sites of a few unis and they mostly seem to say they have no preference, I'm just wondering is it the same in reality?
