    There's no harm in trying again. Could always persuade them by saying if you don't show improvement by December they can kick you off (although please make sure you work hard until then). Making consider going to a different sixth form?

    I feel sorry for you tbh, because I was in the exact same position. I had to take an A-level course that I really didn't like, because I didn't get the required grades for the subject I did want to take. To be honest, your best bet is speaking to somebody high up in your school, and offering them a little deal. Ask them to move you onto the course until the October Assessments. Make the deal that if you don't achieve at least a C or above in the subject, then they can kick you off the course. Very fair deal.

    Make sure it's the first thing you do on Monday, but still it's not too late yet. I know people that have changed subjects/courses, moved back to my college, moved from my college to another even after a month or more, so don't worry.
