What should I swap As level chemistry with? Watch

    • Thread Starter

    I'm currently doing As level biology, chemistry, law and english language and literature.
    However, it's the third week and I absolutely hate chemistry and don't understand anything (although most people in class are blaming the teacher), all we're doing is moles and maths- I hate maths and after GCSE I never wanted to see it again. I've also been told from here on it'll just get harder. Therefore I feel I should drop the subject, in fact I only chose it because I thought it would leave my options for the future wide as I don't know what I want to do yet, I like the idea of forensic science but I also don't mind being an editor or social worker in the future.
    Long story short any advise, and do you think I should swap chemistry for sociology or psychology? What would be more useful or go better with my current subjects?

    Sorry you've not had any responses about this. Are you sure you've posted in the right place? Here's a link to our subject forum which should help get you more responses if you post there.

    You're teachers are right that it will get very harder, especially if you're finding it difficult keeping on track.
    I think psychology would work well with biology and law (even english when writing essays).
    Try speaking to your teacher first before you make any big decisions, you might be able to get some help with it and find out you like chemistry!
