    I am currently in year 12 and am considering what to drop at the end of the year as we have to decide quite soon. At the moment I do:
    - Biology
    - Geography
    - Philosophy and Ethics (RS)
    - Textiles

    I'm thinking of either doing Philosophy or Human Geography at uni so I'm going to continue Geography and RS next year meaning I'll either drop Biology or textiles.

    I know I can be guaranteed at least an A in textiles at the end of the two years (to meet grade requirements) but in biology, of course its difficult to know what you'll get. However I feel like I'm learning more in biology and think universities will respect it more, could anyone give me advice?

    Btw I know it's quite early, I'm just interested in getting opinions

    Despite my love of anything artistic, I think the biology would fit better

    Just remember you will NOT get an AS Textiles grade at all if you drop it as you now have to do the full 2 year course to get a grade.
