Could I pick up another A-Level in my last year and drop my other one? watch

    • Thread Starter

    I got AAC at AS (English, History, Biology) and I'm sure I could get two A*'s in English/History but I can't see myself getting above a C in A-Level Biology. I hate the subject, studying for it is boring and I find that when I do I can't learn anything, I have no passion for the subject whatsoever.

    I was wondering if it is possible for me now to pick-up another A-Level in my last year and drop Biology, for example Politics or Economics (or even film studies at this point.) I honestly think learning the AS content again for either of those three subjects would be so much easier than doing A-Level & AS Biology. Not sure if this is possible however or if schools allow it. I understand there would be a problem with predicted grades but I'm planning on taking a gap year anyway, so I'd be applying with my actual results.

    Any advice would be appreciated.

    P.S I'm planning on studying Politics & IR so Biology is not relevant to my course at all.
