    Okay so due to mental health reasons I am considering dropping a subject at A Level meaning that I will only be doing 2 instead of 3. I don't plan on going to university because of my mental health issues and I know I would not be able to cope there. I hope to get an apprenticeship or something after sixth form. I just want to know if dropping this subject will be the right choice for me and my future. I don't know whether I should struggle through the 2 years and try to get 3 or drop it and make my life easier but only get 2. Will my job prospects be limited if I only get 2 A Levels?!?

    Realistically, only having 2 A levels is going to severely limit your choices. You could argue that 2 good A levels are better than 3 bad ones, but it's going to be a struggle to find a university that would accept you with only 2 A levels, which is usually the reason you study them in the first place. If you're thinking of an apprenticeship instead, it could be less of a problem - check out the entry requirements of some apprenticeships to see!
