What subject have/will you drop at AS Level and why?

I dropped Business Studies as I didn't enjoy it as much as I expected and felt my other subjects made a better combination for my future plans. =D

i have no idea ): i really, really need some help with it
i do fine art, maths, chem & physics. and i ust picked up further maths which i'm getting on with really well(should have fp1 done by easter, started it friday in free periods)!
i will more than likely get As in all of them, and whilst i find physics hardest, art is more time consuming and physics would "look better".
i just don't knowww

Guess it comes down to what you want to do. If you want to something like architecture, then you would be better keeping both art and physics, along with maths. If you are more interested in a science degree though, such as engineering, then drop art.

Good luck whatever you decide!

I dropped Philosophy because it was my worst grade, and the teaching for that subject in my 6th form was awful.
I found it intresting, but I know ultimately I made the right decision.

I don't think I'll end up dropping any, provided I get high UMS. If I do, it'll have to be Computing.

Maths. Keeping Eng Lit, History and French, they correspond to the degree I want to do and I enjoy them as subjects the most.

I will actually miss Maths though, the teacher and lessons are hilarious. If only my English teachers were anywhere near as good... 8-)

I dropped Biology. I loved it but got an E in it and I wouldn't have been able to resit all the modules. I wish I'd been able to drop computing instead because I hate it!

I dropped business studies because it bored me so much. Also got quite a rubbish mark in it.

Edit: Oh and I dropped critical thinking as well, simply because there is no point to the subject.

I dropped physics.
I was terrible at it and I hated it.
By January of yr 12 I had pretty much given up.
I didn't even want to do it in the first place, but timetables meant I couldn't do biology or maths so I was stuck with it.
I got a U overall, and in all units so its I good thing I dont have to worry about it now.
In our CW we even had to do the visit report with out visiting anywhere!
Its stupid.

And I also dropped critical thinking, but that was more because the teachers couldn't be bothered with it anymore.
We were doing it in the same one hour a week as general studies.
And no one got above a D.

I'm doing Biology, Chemistry, Maths and Economics. I'm almost certainly going to drop Economics, and hopefully pick up Further Maths AS. Oh, and general studies but I'll probably keep that to A2.
