    unless you were taking it as a 4th i think it's too late to switch it out for something else because other subjects will have gone far into the syllabus by now

    Don't give up. Why did you choose it to begin with?

    If you’re taking 4 then it’s fine, if you’re only taking 3 then it’s probably too late

    We are well into the Autumn term, it's quite late to drop/change subjects.

    Speak to your tutor/Director of Sixth Form for advice - like others have said, you ideally want three A-Levels.

    Don't be discouraged, you still have several months to improve!
    Are your other subjects doing okay? If you are better at your other subjects, that may leave with more time to revise chemistry - whenever you have free time, try reading textbooks, practice questions!
    I was finding one of my A levels hard after the first year, but I spent my summer (2 months) just doing lots of practice questions from textbooks and watching youtube revision videos, and when I started my second year, I saw a lot of improvement.
    One thing you could start with is evaluating your weaknesses - are you finding certain topics difficult, or everything in general? Then you can target what you're finding hard, and see if you make any improvement after practicing.

    everyone's terrible at a-levels at first. make sure you understand all the chemistry content from your lessons, and then attempt to go through questions (potentially with a teacher). once you've perfected your exam technique, it's not that bad.

    I have the same problem. I cry in toilets before every chemistry lesson. It is not hard, I just hate it with all my heart.
    I wish I could quit sixth form altogether
