should i drop a subject?? pls help
« on: August 28, 2021, 10:57:33 pm »
hi! Iím in yr 11 currently n going into year 12 very soon, doing 12 units rn and no accelerated courses. The subjects im doing right now are
- maths advanced
-maths extension
- english advanced
-English extension
- legal studies
-modern history
- korean beginners
And I donít know whether to drop either modern history or korean. My modern history teacher isnít the greatest but im doing very well in it and it scales decent, and korean beginners scales very poorlyÖ
And I kinda really dislike speaking tasks , but it is fun to learn? However I donít think I could keep them both because all my subjects are really content heavy and I donít think I could keep up with the workload. Any suggestions would be appreciated 😭😭

Welcome to the forums :)

When people ask about picking between subjects and mention scaling, my first question would always be 'if scaling wasn't a factor, which one would you choose?'. Your answer to this should more or less align with what you want to choose. It's also okay to keep both, at least until the workload potentially catches up.
