    So in a few days it will be the deadline for the options form; and im not really sure what I should choose. But we are doing the English Baccalaureate these are the lessons it consists of:

    English Language GCSE
    English Literature GCSE
    Mathematics GCSE
    Double Science GCSE
    History OR Geography GCSE
    French OR German GCSE

    The compulsory subjects are Civics and PE ( Which we are not doing a GCSE in )

    We have 2 options to pick from these:

    Art and Design
    Business Studies
    Dance
    Drama
    Economics
    Food Technology
    ICT
    Media Studies
    Music
    PE GCSE
    Product Design
    Religious Education GCSE
    Triple Science

    We have to pick 2 Options and 2 Reserves, we are garunteed that we will get the first 2 options we pick but for any reason anything happens we have reserves.

    My Options

    1. ICT
    2. Economics OR Business Studies? ( Im More Interested In Economics )
    3. Anything I didnt Choose in Option 2.
    4. I Have No Idea

    Im not sure about Economics but it does look interesting, I've had many people say things about how it is boring; but no other options really appeal to me.

    Hope u can help me out

    Hi , my options are : History , Spanish , Trip Science , I.C.T and P.E.
    If I had to choose between business and economics , I would pick economics because it's a better GCSE , whereas business is considered extremely soft.
    It all also depends on what you enjoy and what you would like to study at A Level.

    Is it ICT GCSE? Check what the course is, because you may want to steer clear of BTECs, OCR nationals etc. Not looked highly upon, and they weren't acknowledged when I applied to Sixth Forms.
    And if it is ICT OCR Nationals, I'd warn you off of it. Just finishing now, it's literally you print screening yourself opening a folder to prove you know how to do it.
