    So, i really want to drop Geography because its taking up much of my time and my grades don't reflect my hard work put into it. But, should I drop it now? or should i wait for offers of universities then decide whether or not i should drop it? or should i just stick with it since most universities give out offers based on the grades of three subjects so i can just focus my time on the three subjects and kinda ignore geography? i mean i will revise geography but not as hard as i did now.

    You need to ask your UNis whether they permit you to drop it, as now your form has gone in, you need Uni approval to change anything

    I'd say keep it and walk into Geography blind if you need to, better than dropping it and having to explain that when they probably wouldn't care if you got say AAAD
