    I've just started year 12, and am doing triple science and maths. Im going to drop one at the end of this year, but I don't know which one yet - I'm planning on waiting and seeing how I do in each subject.

    I'm aiming to go to a Russell Group uni. I currently have no idea what course I want to do, but I'm going to lots of open days/taster lectures/etc. soon.

    I got 2 A*s at GCSE in physics and art, 6 A's, and B's in english language, and religious studies.

    I currently don't do any extracurricular activities, but I'm planning on joining the debate committee, becoming a prefect when possible, and maybe (?) starting an LGBT+ club at school (I know some people who might be interested in doing it with me).

    I'd also really like a hobby outside of school, preferably not sports-related.

    Will I be able to get into a good russell group university with these GCSE's?

    How can I find out more about subjects/courses?

    What extracurricular activities/hobbies can I do to put on my uni application?

    Advice for A-level studying and choosing which subject to drop?

    Sorry you've not had any responses about this. Are you sure you've posted in the right place? Here's a link to our subject forum which should help get you more responses if you post there.
