    Hi, i'm currently in first year at a sixth form college studying: Maths, Physics, Chemistry and Computer Science.

    I think I want to drop one of these subjects in 2nd year and take the AS at the end of this year. It's between Chemistry and Computer Science for me.

    I'm thinking I should drop computer science as chemistry is more of a 'core' subject with more options, am i right in thinking that? I don't even think you need computer science at A-level to study it at uni. Don't ask which I enjoy more because it honestly depends on each lesson.


    Reasoning for dropping a subject:
    Free up my timetable to allow me to get a part-time job in 2nd year to help me financially. As well as this it will allow me to focus more on the three subjects i'm taking into A2, seems the smart choice to me.

    I think you should drop Chemistry. You already have Maths and Physics which give you many options for university courses though I guess it depends on what you're applying for. I
    But you should drop the subject you're enjoying the least.
