    So, right now I'm in my second year of college- doing Maths, Bio and German. I chose to drop Chem because I just found it so hard (I got an E for AS)
    My dad is telling me to enrol for Chem again or to just drop out of college. He believes that I won't go far without Chem
    Despite the fact that I have researched some courses which require 2 sciences @ A level.
    Is there any other way of possibly carrying on with A2 Chem at another college (so after I've finished A2)?
    Or should I carry on with my current 3 A2 courses?
    I NEED HELP :'(

    I'm only doing bio (+geog+German) and I've been told I'm ay okay with going to uni to study genetics without chemistry. I'm picking up chem AS and aiming for a D but hey ho. If you've got maths AND bio then thats 2 sciences and you're more than fine????

    No point torturing yourself for another year with Chemistry if you don't need it, I think you only need it for medicine and such. What are you planning on studying?
