1. Which would you choose if you could only choose one out of those subjects?
2. Which would you choose if you could choose two out of those subjects?
...At GCSEs.

I'm just interested in your opinions I would choose Geography and Triple Science

Since I want to do science a-levels, triple science would be the priority. Then history purely out of interest.

Geography and Triple Science because that's what I do
Out of the four subjects I picked as options, these two are the only ones I don't regret

Geography and Triple Science. History bores me to death and I'm not so good with remembering dates.

I do all three of these, and chose History and Triple Science. Triple Science I didn't really have a choice after my exam results on Thursday but I'm glad I'm doing it. History is interesting in most cases - some things are dull, as with every subject, but overall I think it's great. Geography is good as well, and I like it more than Triple Science most of the time and it's (hopefully) an A* that's not that hard to get come the exams, but because it's straightforward I sometimes lose a little bit of interest.

I would do History and Geography. This would mean doing double science which still allows you to do science A levels. So, overall, you would have a wider range of options for A levels cos you'd be able to do sciences/history/geography.

History and Geography FTW! They are some of the best subjects you can take (enjoyment wise IMO)!

I would chose Geography and Triple Science, I take them as well as History but I enjoy Geography lessons way more than my History lessons.

It's interesting that people chose the combination of history/triple science even though they don't have much in common unlike the other options

I did Geography and Triple science, you get some overlaps with the sciences and geography (that's bound to help) and you also get some overlaps in bio and chem a-level (currently doing AS) with geography, that's why it would be a better choice. History is a strong GCSE (if you like writing essays!) but there aren't many overlaps from what I've heard (dropped it before GCSEs) but you can choose whatever you feel is best for you.

Good Luck, God Bless.

For me it would have to be Triple Science and History. The sciences are so much more interesting and especially at A level. I always hated Geography, and currently take History.

If you want to take Geography, watch out for the coursework!

Triple science and history. Triple science as it's useful if you want to pursue a science and A Level and history as although it was boring at times, it was one of the most useful GCSEs in the sense I have used the skills learnt on a regular basis.

If I had to choose 1 then definitely Geography. Its so interesting and a really broad course =) Love it!
If 2 then Geography and History purely because Triple Science sounds like absolute hell to me =p Always hated Science! History is much more interesting for me =p

I'd pick history and triple science-that's what I'm currently doing and I enjoy both of them. Triple science provides a great basis for science A levels and history is generally a very interesting subject and improves your analytical skills. It's well respected by universities too. Geography does overlap with the sciences though so if you're looking for an easy option, then I'd choose geography and triple science.

I do all of them
Incidentally, my three strongest subjects are: biology, chemistry and history. I think that's because they're probably the only three subjects which I find most intriguing. Saying that, some elements of history are a bore, as with other elements of all subjects!

Geography at GCSE level doesn't challenge me at all but like someone said above, it should be a relatively easy A* to attain this summer...

So yeah- history and triple science for me
