Should I try to stop music as a GCSE? Help! Watch

I'm trying to not do my music GCSE ,however, I'm in year 11. And I don't know if I can still change it.
The reason why I'm trying to change is mostly because of the stress I get when I think about it .
I'm not that motivated to compose as there are less than 4 people in my class (including me) and I ,compared to the other students, have no previous experience in composing.
I'm also worried about the performance aspect of the GCSE as I play worse under stress .I also have to play in an ensemble (I usually play with someone else in a group) but in the GCSE I have to play the part on my own and I'm worried I could also lower the grades of the other people in my class (as they also have to perform).
The only part I'm semi-confident in is the written paper but that's around 25% of the whole grade.
I know this sounds like I'm complaining but I just don't know if I should try to continue studying music at GCSE?
Can anyone give me any advice?

Just drop it, that’s what I did in year 11 all you need to do is talk to your head of year and get a note from your parents saying they’ll allow you to not do it
