    Question Should I do this with my 14 units?

    I'm completing 14 units for prelim. These include:

    3U Maths
    3U English
    Music 1
    SOR II (compulsory)

    I'm currently doing SOR accelerated and I really don't like it. With such heavy subjects, I'm thinking of dropping down to SOR I so I have more time in Year 12 as I also intend to drop Music and pick up 4U Maths (and that the SOR I HSC exam is mid next year). However, my school has made it compulsory that I do 14 units in case I have to drop both Ext. English and Ext. Math provided I can't handle them in prelim year. I really don't know what I would do then. There are 2 1-unit subjects I can pick from to do 14 units, but they are subjects I would hate even more than SOR II. Another option would be that I have to pick up ANOTHER 2-unit subject bringing my units to 15 (I'm sure they won't let me do this).

    Regardless, is it worth it inquiring about changing from SOR II to SOR I? It's my only humanities subject so if I keep it I intend to use it to practice my English, but it's just a subject that fails to interest me and I'm behind in all my work now. I've done an exam for it already and will get my marks back soon. Should I just decide then? I can't even handle doing the work now as it doesn't interest me at all. If I do inquire to change, what do you speculate they will make me do? Pick up 2 more units?

    Hmm this is a difficult decision. I think its best to drop as soon as possible so that you can focus on the heavy subjects. Are you struggling in both extensions? If you are, then maybe discuss with your teacher about it. Since you are struggling with SOR, definitely drop down to SOR 1. With 4U maths, you will need to commit a lot of time into it. Since you are doing 14 units for the HSC, they will only count 10 units in the HSC, but still you want to do well in case one of them you didn't excel in. Yeah, make a pros and cons list and then choose from there. Also seek additional help from your teachers regarding which ones to drop. If you need more help, just PM me, this sure is a hard decision (I'm struggling atm too)
