Sounds good. Have you done them yet; if you have did you find them hard?

Yep, and I'm doing my A levels now. I remember finding them quite difficult but they were a piece of cake comparing to A levels. Good luck with yours!

The ones I had to pick were:
English
Maths
The Sciences
ICT
A language (in year nine, our school do early entry language GCSE in year nine so thats over and done with now) - French

The ones I picked were:
History
Geography
Art
Health and Social.

Although in Year Nine when I picked my options I originally picked Medical History, Drama, Business Studies, and Health & Social. But business was full so I took art instead, and then I dropped medicinal history and drama about a month in because I hated it.

Well I just chose what I enjoyed when I was in year 9 although I regret 2/3 of the options that I chose now. I wish I would have chose triple science rather than ICT and History rather than Graphic design. Good luck!

Why we have to do RS as a GCSE I don't know. It's just more stress, and let's be honest - not gonna make much difference when you're applying for uni :/
