Considering dropping A2 subject, advice needed Watch
In these subjects, I am predicted a B in ICT and a C in Maths...however, the problem lies with Physics. Before half term, my physics teacher told me that I will have to work substantially hard to even pass the subject, and has suggested that I drop the subject so I can concentrate on aquiring the above grades in the other two subjects (he knows about the offer.) I do agree that this could be a good idea, as I don't particularly enjoy the subject, and I would rather concentrate on getting good grades in the other two subjects instead of simply passing physics and potentially affecting my other grades.
Although I am somewhat in favour of dropping, I am worried that dropping Physics might affect my offer. I am not totally sure whether the offer requires me to get 120 points by passing all three subjects, or to achieve 120 points regardless of whether I drop/get a U in one of the subjects. Can anyone confirm which of these is correct? Or would I be better off contacting the uni (even though I haven't accepted the offer yet) before making a decision?
One more thing - if I do decide to drop physics, would my AS Physics grade still count towards the offer? I have a D at AS (I did this two years ago at my old college), which I believe is worth 30 tariff points. If this did count, then this would technically reduce my offer to 90 points - although I am capable of achieving the 120, this would relieve the pressure somewhat.
Any advice would be great.
I expect dropping physics would be fine unless it specifically says you need to have 2 6-unit awards.
