    Currently most courses are Linear, I would have to take the full two year course of A-Level. Currently, I'm a Year 12 student and am planning to drop History meaning I would have to take the AS exam this year. I love History and I'm really good at it but I feel as though the work is just too much. For uni, I wanna go into engineering so history isn't really a big focus compared to my other subjects.

    But I don't know, maybe it could be important? Should I take the AS exam? Would my AS grade count? Please advise, thank you! x

    If you think you can do better in your other subjects by dropping a subject it might be best to do that
    unis would rather you get AAA than ABBB
    More courses are becoming linear so the universities would take that into account
“Yanny” or “Laurel”
