    So I only got a B at it in GCSE and honestly I feel like if I didn't revise a few days before and started months ago I would've gotten a A but anyways that's over. I applied to do RS at A level and everyone and I mean.. EVERYONE told me to drop it. Because it's extremely hard. I didn't do good in my GCSEs and I'm scared that I have to resit ANOTHER year. I picked sociology too which I think I'll do okay in and psycology I'm quite scared of too because of the science and maths involved. And I'd rather have BCC then CUE so idk? Shall I not do RS ? Would I be able to get a B? I'm not clever and I don't work well under pressure. Should I just stick to doing a subject that's mostly coursework based like BTEC Health and Social care?

    To study RS I needed a B in a humanity at GCSE, I remember doing so badly in my RS GCSE mock my teacher told me it wouldn't be worth doing it at A lvl, but I moved school, took RS and got a very high score in AS and got predicted an A*, currently waiting for results. Long story short, if you're committed and think you'll enjoy it go for it, it's not particularly hard when you space out your reading. Good luck
