Should I drop a subject if I am given a low predicted gradeWatch
I am quite confident that I will do just as well in the subjects I got A*s in but I was on the grade boundary for an A in chemistry, and have been working at a high B/low A throughout the year, so I was wondering if I did very badly in the upcoming test and was predicted a B would it make more sense to just drop the subject?
Secondly most unis won’t require a 4th A level so unless you are wanting to do a degree that requires chemistry or is chemistry related, I would drop it. It will let you focus more on your other three and you can ensure you’ll get all 3 of your A*s if you’re striving for perfection.
Personally I wouldn’t let the predicted grade determine which subject I drop but rather the difficulty of the subject and the relevancy to my chosen degree. I dropped chemistry and now do maths, physics and bio as I can get into an engineering course no problem with those A levels and chemistry was just too tricky for me. It is supposed to be one of the hardest A levels and many students have a similar experience.
Most universities will only ask for 3 grades anyway so you don't need to do chemistry , but I dont see a reason to drop it unless you can't cope with doing 4 a levels 😊
