Eng Advice !!
Basically I am kinda stuck at a cross roads here at the moment looking for any wise upper year advice. I just finished my first semester of ENG 1 and ended up with an average of 8.6. I feel however that I really struggled with the amount of work and every week was accompanied by a new catastrophe.

Does everyone feel like this?

Now I'm beginning second semester and I'm wondering if maybe I should drop a course to lighten my load and boost my other marks up. Sadly I didn't get free choice so Im worried if I do this it will put me at a big disadvantage for 2nd year stream selection. I'm hoping to get into software and I've heard that this year its going to be very competitive.

What are your thoughts on the software engineering program in general, is it worth going into?

If I were to drop a course I would drop Physics 1E03, I just felt as though first semester physics was pretty challenging for me and I spent way to much time on it. The deadline to drop is this Friday without it showing up on your transcript so I really dont want to make the wrong decision.
