    After struggling to compete the maths homework since the start, I figured if I spent more time I would fall behind in my Computer Science.

    Considering it's just a few months till the exam, and I'm stuggling now. I figured dropping would be a good choice.

    I'm now doing Biology A Level, Computer Science, Business B-TEC.

    Sorry if I come across as annoying. But anything would be appricated.

    Why would that be annoying?

    I think that dropping maths whilst continuing computer science is not the best choice. After all, computing is just applied mathematics, and they do rather go together like fish and chips. I would have tried to get extra help with the maths rather than drop it, but only you know just how difficult you were finding it.

    Mathematics does go well with Computer Science. If you prefer Biology over Maths, then that's ok. There's no point of doing something that you don't like.

    I spent hours in my breaks doing my maths, and my computing homework was of a poor standard.

    I could've done it probably, but my computing grade would be the price. As it's only going to get harder.

    I like maths, but because was so far behind the lessons were not enjoyable.

    If it's because it's too hard for you to do well and you're not enjoying the subject anymore, by all means drop it. If you still like it but you're far behind and don't like the lessons themselves, then teach yourself.

    Now that I think about it, I was never enjoying the lessons because I couldn't cope with the workload.

    I feel like I made the right decision now, thank you, and thanks to everyone else!
