    Is it too late to change subjects in November of year 12?

    I currently study A-level media, english lit lang, history, and AS german on the side.
    I hate history with a burning passion, i find the workload along with my general understanding and enthusiasm for the subject to just really stress me out, as i dont care and dont have the motivation to do any of the work given to me. The mere thought of all the outstanding work i have makes me want to cry.
    I'm not able to have German as my third subject because my school is viewing it as an optional choice considering it's a voluntary class i go to as a result of them dropping it from the course list. It was what i wanted to do instead of History, but i was forced to take that instead.
    I dont know what i could even switch to at this point in the year without being incredibly behind. I'm so stressed and unsure of what to do, any advice would be welcome.

    I know I couple of people who have changed subjects just this week. They really thought about it for a long time, one of them even dropped two subjects to take one new one just because of how much free time they needed to be able to catch up. I would only suggest changing now if you really despise your subject and have a clear image in your head of how a different one would be better - more enjoyment, so more engagement so better grades etc. Good luck

    I really hate history, I've been thinking of dropping it for about a month and a half now. The only issue is that I'm not sure if there is any other course I would want to take considering how crap the choice is at my school. I was thinking of IT or art, but i took neither of those subjects for GCSE and i dont really have a passion for either, just anything to get me out of history

    Definitely change now if you hate it!! You’ll have like no motivation when it comes to May/June so def change now! And IT is actually really enjoyable so I recommend that as Art has tons and tons of work and would be quite hard to catch up imo
