Can I just do English and maths and not a course watch

    • Thread Starter

    I have been studying for a course that I do not enjoy. It is apparently too late to just change course. Can I just drop the course I am doing and focus on my maths and English gcse resit since I failed last year and really want to focus on passing this year. Any information on this would be appreciated.

    It depends on where you are studying. If you are school, they probably wont let you drop a class, but you can revise less for it. At college, you can drop out any time, but you may not get your money back, you would have to look at their reimbursement rules.

    Personally I would keep going in all of them, just make the English and Maths your priority to study and tick over with the one you don't like. The first term is always the hardest because you are getting used to teachers and content. Keep at it, because all qualifications are better then none.
