So basically, I do Biology, Chemistry and Sociology. Absolutely hated chemistry and I failed it in my end of year mocks and got a U, however I passed the other 2 and I am still being allowed into year 13. I know I will not go to uni in 2020 and that is fine, but is there any way for me to drop Chemistry, do 2 A levels and an AS and then do an extra year to finish the AS as the course is linear?

Need help!

Many students retake or add years during A Levels due to wrong subject choices etc. You would have to run it by your school, but you could absolutely do that if they agreed; it takes more guts to accept that you might like to do something else and then go do it than clinging on and risking it all just so you didnt 'give up'

it's possible certainly to do this, not too sure how favourably some unis would look at this though.
