Hey, I started Year 12 this year.
My original options were:
Religious Studies (Philosophy)
I changed Economics to Sociology because I was struggling to follow the lessons and it wasn't interesting enough to try and follow. I know Sociology is regarded as a 'soft' subject, but I genuinely find it interesting so I don't care. Besides, I'm doing also English, Maths and Philosophy, which are all well-regarded subjects.
My problem is that I'm finding my maths lessons very boring and I don't foresee myself achieving an A by the end of Year 13. Would I still stand an actual chance at going to top universities if:
--I got AAA in my subjects, but continued Sociology and dropped Maths.
--I got AAB in my subjects, the B being in Maths.
I'm aiming for the top, top universities, so that includes Oxbridge and UCL etc.

You preferably want to have two facilitating subjects - so I'd recommend keeping maths, especially if you're going for a top university. However, that being said, getting high results is the most important thing. If you genuinely feel you won't achieve well in maths, then drop it. Hope this helps X
