At the moment my subjects as of September will be English literature and language, Psychology, Economics and Drama. After receiving my GCSE results yesterday, I was pleasantly surprised by an A in history after getting told I was C/B grade the entire year - and because of this I am considering switching Drama for History (I also got an A in Drama). I really need advice!!
Pros of swapping ; History is more 'academic'.
I know if I do take Drama, it will be the subject I drop after a year whereas History I could potentially continue.
Cons of swapping ; Drama is taught by a teacher I love and I have fun in the lessons.
I already have an essay subject so don't necessarily need another.
I hate revising for history.
Any advice is helpful, thank you!!
A level subject advice!! Please help Watch

I would go for the subject you enjoy more. I think revising for history will be very difficult if you hate revising for the subject. But it is honestly up to you. I chose my subjects based on how well I did and what subject I enjoyed the most. You got an A in drama and you seem to really enjoy it

You say History is more academic but that isn't necessarily a good thing. Taking a more "artsy" subject like Drama shows a more rounded person. On the whole your other subjects are academic enough that having something a little different will benefit you.
If neither makes any real difference to your goals after college then take the one you prefer. Doing well at something doesn't mean you have to carry on with it. If you enjoy Drama more and feel like it'll be a better investment of your time then go for it
