    Is it too late to swap from English to biology? I'm finding English particularly hard, I put a lot of effort into the subject and get nothing back, my teacher is horrible, she tends to bully her students. Because I'm new to my school and she's been here roughly 20 years I doubt if I was to complain it would be taken seriously. I got an A in gcse biology, but it was so close to the A* and a B in maths. What are my chances of being allowed to swap?

    slim. especially at this point in the year. A Level bio(and sciences in general) is hard even for those who got straight A*'s. But still it might be worth asking- and have a few other subject options to swap into if you really want to drop english.
