I originally started by thinking that doing an extra two units would provide a solid "back up plan", thus easing my anxiety. As time goes on, I feel like it might be a better idea to drop a subject to ensure I have ample time to focus on subjects better in scaling and personal preference. Truthfully, I like all of my subjects, I’m just unsure as to whether the time consumption of an extra subject is worth it for the purpose of a "back up plan", or if it’s a better idea to focus all my time and energy on only 10 units.
I am currently doing English advanced, English extension 1 and 2, maths standard, modern history, legal studies and business studies. If I were to drop a subject, it would be business studies.
