I'm currently taking Physics, Maths, English Lit and Classics. I love all my subjects but I'm sure that the workload will get too much for me so I really need to drop a subject. I'd be dropping one of my essay subjects but I don't know which one to drop. I've always had a fascination with Classics, but right now I'm a bit bored in classes. English obviously has a bigger workload and I find Classics really easy so I'm stuck on what to do. Any advice would really help.

Physics probably, or design engineering. I'm really taking English Lit and Classics for the enjoyment instead of the grades... I know long term Eng Lit might be more helpful but I'm really struggling to choose between them.

I'm super biased. I have an A Level in Class Civ, and I'm currently studying Classical Studies for my degree.

So erm... put me down as a vote for Classics

In all seriousness, go with whichever one you feel is going to hold your interest better for two years. Everyone has different preferences.

How'd you find your A Level? Our course focuses on the Illiad, Love and Relationships and Greek Theatre but right now I'm not really finding L&R that fun...

We did the Odyssey and the Aeneid for the epic poems.
Then a few greek tragedies like Medea and Oedipus (I forget which other ones, it was a long time ago)
And lots and LOTS of vases, temples, and statues.

I liked the literature, but I found the vases, temples, and statues much more tedious to learn about.

I never actually did the Iliad. I'm only just starting it now in Stage 2 of my degree actually.
