Is it too late to change my GCSE options?

I took Japanese as a GCSE in year 8, when I was taking Latin and Japanese. Now that it's January and I'm behind on the really hard work that we have to do, I'm reconsidering this choice and wondering if I can and should change to Latin. For the GCSE, Latin only has a reading and a writing exam, whereas Japanese also has the listening and the speaking (both of which I am bad at). Latin is generally easier, but I'm worried than I might regret this choice too. Should I carry on for two more years with this really hard and stressful subject, or should I do lots of catch up work and switch over?

depends what year you're in, if you've still got 2 years to go i reckon you could change your options but there'll still be a fair amount to catchup on in latin, if you're ready for that.

There may still be time. When I was in year 9 lots of people got the chance to change their GCSE a few months after officially choosing them. Just email your head of year or the person who is dealing with GCSE options.
