    Well in reality I 'picked' only 2 subjects of my own free will - media and business. It was encouraged to take a humanity and a language - hence taking German and Geography. And it was compulsory to take maths, english and science. Since I am also in top set for everything, it was also compulsory for me to take statistics along with maths and eng lit/lang and triple science.

    All in all:
    Bio
    Chem
    Physics
    Maths
    Statistics
    Eng lang
    Eng lit
    Geog
    German
    Media

    I'm going into year 11 next year so I'm half way through my GCSEs and I'm doing:
    Compulsory-
    English Language
    English Literature
    Maths
    *Biology
    *Chemistry
    *Physics
    ICT
    Beliefs and Values (religious studies)

    My options:
    French
    Geography
    History

    *Triple or double science wasn't really an option (or sometimes called Advanced Science and Additional science) I was told I was in triple, but if you really don't want to be in there, you could go in for three months and then when we had a test you could either choose to leave or get kicked out because you didn't do well enough (I'm sure like most school, we have tons of tests all the way through mostly at the end of each term though)

    Compulsory- English, Maths, Triple Science, ICT, German, RE, PE and DT. Choices- Art, Music. In my opinion I hated both Art and Music and wished that I never picked them in the first place wasted two years of my life trying to convince my teachers that I was clever hehe. The advice I would give to GCSE students is that they should pick a subject that they enjoy and are good at because trust me it will be worth it rather than failing repeatedly -_-
