I am currently in Yr 11 doing my GCSE’s I’m aiming for grades 6-8 for my subjects but there is one gcse that I am doing horrible at. With the pandemic and the massive lockdown we had I couldn’t really focus on art and instead I just worked on my other subjects. Now my predicted grade for art is a 4 since I last checked (maybe a 3 now) and at the rate I am going I will fail the subject. I spend hours upon hours doing the work the teacher sets and yet it doesn’t mean even amount to a pass. I am afraid that the hours I spend doing the work will affect my other subjects and in the end I will have more than just a bad grade for art. I want to know if it is possible to drop art. It’s going to mess up my GPA and ruin my chances for other subjects too. If I drop art I will have 8 remaining GCSEs (if I get triple science then this will become 9 I think). Will sixth forms still accept me? And if I do still have art will it mess up my chances?
Thank you for any replies.

I dropped French in year 10, got 8 full gcses and still go to sixth form. It may be too late to drop art but it's worth asking.

It's possible to drop Art but you'd need to talk to the school.

Don't worry, 8 GCSEs will be sufficient.

8-9 GCSEs is completely adequate. Talk to someone in your school higher up, or talk to a teacher you like to pass the message on if you dont know where to go, and double check you dont need an art gcse for any of your a level options (but this isnt likely so you should be fine). Keep pushing on your other subjects and good luck!
