My friend isn't doing the same AS exam as me (mathematics), however she studies 4 subjects including further maths.
She said that the reason I have an AS exam is because the school thinks I'll drop out.
This might be a ridiculous thing but my teachers have not been transparent with me, and I am an immigrant so I don't know how this entire thing works?

AS qualifications are just a one year award.

It doesnt mean you'll drop out, and their is no reason to assume your teachers have done so for this reason.

your school & subjects may have varying policies for entering students. Your better off discussing this with your teachers then taking a random year 12 at their word who is spouting whatever nonsense comes into their head.

Thank you so much for responding! I was really worried. I'm glad it's not like what she said.
