Dropping a level history? watch

    • Thread Starter

    Hi guys,

    i am currently studying maths, fmaths, physics and history in my first year of a level. i have just begun to look into uni courses. Based on my a level experience so far i definately want to do something to do with maths, physics, engineering etc. definitely nothing to do with history becuase i am not enjoyning the a level and am finding it harder than my other subjects. i was wondering if u think it is best to drop history and focus on my other subjects, or will this make me a less competitive applicant seeing as i intend to apply to top unis including oxbridge. i have heard that some unis consider maths and fmaths as just one a level.

    sorry its such a long question. id be grateful of any replies

    Drop it definitely. Better getting 3 top grades than 4 average. All unis only recommend 3 subjects, and considering all are facilitating you have a good chance of oxbridge depending on your GCSEs.
