    What year do you sit the exam in?
    What year did you begin the course?

    (I don't do GCSE's, I do the scottish equivalent, but I know people who switched courses during it and thus could compare the two and tell you if you could)

    It really depends on which subject ur changing. I'm sure if you speak to a well trusted teacher they may be able to switch you. i know some people who switched half way through year 10 and it worked.

    If it is a 2 year course, and you are sitting it in 2019. Then I know people who switched at the beginning of the second year(i.e. the year they were going to sit it), and they did fine. Ask your school for more details

    I don't see why not. You'd have the previous coursework done to catch up on, but you have summer in which you could do some of that.

    Explain why you want to switch, why you believe the other subject may benefit you more. That you will catch up in your own time(summer being part of that time). Basically explain the situation, maybe get your parents to write in to?
    Also speak to head of the department to get info as to how difficult it may be
