    Hello, I just started A-levels two weeks ago and I was thinking of dropping out of biology and choosing graphics instead. I enjoyed biology at GCSE, however I am not loving it at a-levels and I feel like the work load is way too much!
    My other subjects are Maths, Further Maths and Physics and even though they are all heavily maths based subject I am a quite creative person.
    I honestly have no idea if I should chance or not. Can anyone give me any advice?
    I was thinking of studying engineering or physics at university or perhaps architecture if those two don't go well. Help?

    You already take tough subjects so I would encourage you to drop Biology if you don't enjoy it. The work load really piles up for it if you don't stay on top of everything. Most unis would accept maths, physics and further maths for the courses you are interested in. Good luck.
