    Okay so I asked this question a couple of days ago but I don't think enough people understood the context.
    A levels are now linear - meaning only maths, politics and DT do an exam as an AS this year - every other subject the exams are at the end of year 13. Many schools only offer students 3 a level choices now, many offer 4 but will change to three soon. My school next year only allows 3 a levels.

    Okay, so currently I'm doing maths, biology, history and religious studies with the intent to study law or philosophy at Cambridge; for context sake, mainly law.
    I just don't have any sort of love for maths to carry it on and try to do well.

    Just drop it then

    Check the Cambridge grade requirements. You might not need maths.

    Drop maths. The chances of you needing it for law are quite slim, check specific colleges at Cambridge though just incase. Some can be picky.
