    I'm in Year 13, I currently do Chemistry, Biology and Psychology. Chemistry is to demotivating as I did horribly in AS and there's so much maths questions and I feel when it comes to the real exam no matter how much effort I put in and revise I won't get higher than a C. In mocks I have been consistently getting U's too due to lack of revision and motivation to carry on with the subject. This is not what I want, as I want to have at least ABB.

    I'm thinking of starting a softer subject that would require just as much energy as Chemistry but at least allow me to come out with a decent grade (at least a B) like Government and Politics or Sociology.

    I'm at a standstill and real exams are closing in. I'd really appreciate advice.

    Also I forgot to mention I'm doing a gap year instead of going Uni next year, so I would not really mind if I only did say AS Government and Politics this year and passed that and continued on with the A2 next year. Or alternatively did AS Sociology this year and the whole course next year?

    What do you think?
