    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 English Literature meaning I would have to take the AS exam this year. I love English and I'm really good at it but I feel as though the work is just too much. For uni, I wanna go into Computer Science and Designing so English 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 English 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
