    I've been going to college for just under 2 weeks & I'm really enjoying my subjects apart from Media Studies. I'm not 100% on what career path I'd like to go down but I'm mainly thinking of being either an English teacher or a journalist. I've taken English Lit & Lang (my college didnt offer them separate), sociology, religious studies and media studies. Media studies isn't what I expected it to be like and Im not really enjoying it so I know thats the one I'll be dropping. However, do you think it would be best for me to drop it now and just do 3 AS Levels, carry on with it or change it to another subject? If I did so, Im not sure on what Id change it to - any recommendations? I want to go to a good uni and I know you only need 3 A Levels so would it be okay for me to just do 3 AS levels?? Thanks!

    Universities only want three really good grades. Drop it instantly so you can focus on your other subjects fully

    My friend did 3 AS/A2 and got into a top 10 RG uni for his course, so it's perfectly fine
Do you agree with the PM's proposal to cut tuition fees for some courses?
