Hi guys I'm currently doing 4 A-levels and I'm under so much stress my exams start in May and I skipped school today because I'm under so much stress I do ICT, Economics, biology and health science. My head of year made me pick health science incase I failed biology since it's one of the hardest A-levels but I'm struggling so much as health science is broken up into chemistry, biology and physics I'm stressing so much and I feel like dropping health science therefore I can focus on my other subjects instead of doing 4 and focusing less I need help what should I do?
Ps my mom said just do all 4 since it's four months but I don't want to jeopardise my grades just because it's four A-levels

If you’re stressing a lot, dropping one seems like the obvious option.

If you’re a Year 12, are you taking the AS exams in all 4? You might want to persist for the next few months and drop one then.

Ultimately, 3 A-Level grades of a better quality are more useful in terms of university than 4 lower ones.

Also think of why you’re stressed. A lot of the time stress can come from a lack of doing work, and you get stressed because it builds up. If you can tackle an hour or two a day, whilst maintaining attendance, things may begin to seem much more sustainable. 😊

I'm currently in A-levels and I'm gonna drop one as I do go to school I'm actually feeling weak and stressed I get hours of homework everyday and doing 4 is too much stress to focus and study for 4 A-levels I feel if I do 3 I can focus more be able to study, I don't get time to study because I'm doing homework everyday my attendance is at a solid 98% than you so much for your help I rather have 3 good grades and this midterm break I just couldn't anything due to 5 months of just work I did nothing but tomorrow I'm dropping one A-level and I'm gonna have time to study 😀😀😀

I never let my work build up because I know it will just pile up and cause way more stress but doing 2-3 hours of homework everyday is a lot I don't get time to study on weekends even so when I drop health sciences I can hopefully get more time to study and I'm actually scared because I should have dropped this earlier in the year giving more time to focus on my main 3 A-levels but hopefully when I drop this one I will have better time managent and my attendance won't go lower than 98% as well as getting more study time

I think that’s a wise choice! It’ll decrease stress, give you more time to study your A-Levels you’ve chosen.

I have a friend who was taking 4 and achieved BCCD at AS, she then achieved A*A*A at A-Level after dropping one! It makes sense. Best of luck!
