    They can't force you to change unless you say so yourself. If you work hard, you can prove them wrong. You were only a mark away from half, I'm sure you can go higher. If you want to do biology, then do it. lol, I don't think this was good advice. :/

    No one can force you to change if you don't want to! You just need to put a lot more work in and I'm sure you'll be able to get a better mark. At the end of the day it's your A Level

    The step from GCSE to A-level is massive, as everyone has told me and since starting now I understand.
    I would discuss this with the head of your sixth form/ college, just to make sure there isn't a mistake.
    If not and they try to make you change, argue about the fact you are just getting used to A-level questions and you will make sure you try your hardest to improve.

    Good luck.

    Given the OP is a year old, I imagine that they're not still experiencing this problem! They do still occasionally come online though, so I'll leave this open in case they want to come and update now it's been bumped.
