Just enrolled in sixth form and I was originally going to take maths, further maths and economics.
But I decided to do physics as well as I did so well in it. And now I am majorly regretting it because I forgot how boring I found physics.

Will I be able to drop it before school starts?

of course it isn't too late- you haven't even started the course. just contact your sixth form to change it.

Obviously yes, they can't force you to go to the classes. Email them now and say you don't want to take it.

Do you know if you can drop it a week before the exam?

Highly unlikely as the school has entered you for the exams which involves a fee!

Just to let anyone know, my head of sixth form said that I could drop, even with the physics AS exam a week away, and was willing to withdraw me from the entry, only asking that I talk to my teachers first. I didn't drop and came out with an A anyway.
