Hey guys,
So basically I’m into my 2nd term of year 12 and everything’s going great but I’ve started to get really f-ing bored with business Studies. Firstly I’m mad I didn’t pick physics instead of it cause I want to do engineering in uni. Anyways, it is such a dry subject with loads of content and with terrible scaling. I feel like it is a waste of time and I want to drop it.
I’m currently doing 10 units but I have one accelerated course (IPT) done in which i got a 93. My subjects are currently 4U maths, English Adv, Economics and Business.
I feel like if I drop business I won’t have anything to fall back on if my 4U mark goes bad. For my first term marks, I got 90%+ in most my subjects (English was 85% :0), but I feel like 4U is going to require more attention, especially as I don’t do tutoring and by dropping business and having more free periods I’ll be able to allocate more time and study towards it.
Any suggestions or recommendations?

Hows your ranking/how does your school typically perform in Business Studies?
What type of ATAR do you need?

Im currently ranked 2nd in Business Studies because its so easy yet i find it so boring and a big waste of time. My school usually gets mostly B6 and some B5s in Business Studies.
I need an ATAR of 96 to get into the course I want to do.

I feel like you should keep it for now, seeing that your marks are still good. I understand you want to concentrate more on 4U maths but it would be such a pity if you dropped it :( Idk, this is my opinion.

I feel like at this stage it might be good idea to keep it.
