I'm in a really difficult situation right now. I'm currently doing advanced maths but really badly. My final mark is 39% and i only passed one assessment (51%) this year. I need a 94 atar for the course i want but i think maths is really pulling me back and i think that by doing standard maths it will give me a higher chance of achieving the atar. Because I'm actually good at maths i just don't put enough effort into it, i'll probably get a high mark in standard. But this is the hard part: all of my back up courses have advanced as a prerequisite. But i really don't want to do advanced and by doing advanced i have a lesser chance of making it to my preferred course. So i dont know if i should risk doing advanced and not making it to my no. 1 course or do standard and risk not making it to my back up courses in case i don't get the atar.... pls help. They said if we want to drop we have to do it at the start of term 4.
