Gcse options 2016 Watch
Thanks for your suggestion; it has helped me. What do you think about GCSE Geography and BTEC Health and Social Care? Are BTECs considered weak to GCSEs? I don't know...
When you get round to picking for A level though, and if you want to study something academic at university (history/geography/maths/English/science- anything like that) then BTECs are certainly considered weaker, even more so when it comes to the top universities. They certainly won't disregard you if you have one BTEC and 2 A levels say, but for the likes of Oxford, Cambridge, Durham, Warwick etc. it'll weaken your chances considerably (which is a shame because BTECs are equivalent to A levels and should be treated such but aren't)
And personally I think GCSE Geography would be a really good choice. I never took it but I only heard good friends from those who did and they're now doing it at AS/A level and is a very prestigious subject to have so I'd recommend it definitely

Hi there. I have a week left before I submit my final set of GCSE options, which I will be taking in June 2018. The options are as follows:
GCSE English Literature
GCSE English Language
GCSE Science (Double or Triple, I am not sure yet)
GCSE Statistics (NOT SURE)
I have tried to keep a wide variety of options, so they are open for more career courses, however, I am not sure about GCSE Statistics, as many people have claimed that the coursework involved requires a lot of work and is immensely boring, but it is quite easy and useful for further mathematical, geographical and science careers at A-Levels or Uni. Plus, it is good to have an extra GCSE. I have not really decided fully on it, but I don't know what to do for reserve.
Please drop down your opinions on these options, as they would be really useful for me - I want to get a wide variety of options and they should be enjoyable. Thank you.
