Created by:

In this article, we would like to show you how to conditionally remove last character from the string in Python.

Quick solution:

text = "ABC"

if text[-1] == "C":
    text = text[:-1]

print("after: ", text)  # AB


Practical example

In this example, we check if the last character in a string is C and remove it if true.

text = "ABC"

print("String before:", text)

# remove last character from a string if condition
if text[-1] == "C":
    text = text[:-1]

print("String after: ", text)


String before: ABC
String after:  AB
