I've been told that taking ext 1 just for year 11 can be beneficial for your english skills in general. If I do take ext 1, I plan to drop it for year 12. However, the issue is that I have 13 units right now, as my school requires me to take atleast 6 subjects in year 11. Currently, I'm taking ext maths, chem, phys, geo and eco and taking ext english would bump that up to 14 units. Is this too much? I've also been told that there's a disproportionate amount of work for in ext english for a single unit. I'm definitely more of a 'mathy' person, and english probably my weakest subject (like top 75 idk out of 200 in a top selective school).
