    I've been recently informed there's a pretty high chance that my subject isn't continuing next year, as I'm the only one in the class and it might be too costworthy for my school to provide the services. Are there any ways that I could continue my subject, because I really don't want to just have an AS Level in it, and if I knew it wasn't continuing next year, then I would not have even taken it in the first place.

    You could ask them if you could teach it to yourself/private tuition and they just provide the exam so you can carry on with it. Really you need to tell them that it is extremely unfair that they have let you learn it for a year when you could have been doing another subject. They should have known that they couldn't afford to have a class of one pupil before they let you spend a year on it.

    They should've know beforehand whether it was cost-effective and manageable at the start of the year, once they saw the demand for the subject. I know a guy who was the only one doing Art AS, but they managed to put him with some of the A2 classes - for languages at A-Level, a minimum of 10 is needed for it to go through.

    Fact of the matter is that they made a huge mistake not foreseeing this possible problem, and plead with them to at least let you to still sit the exam. It also depends on the subject if you would actually be able to self-tech yourself/ get private tutor classes.
