    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:

    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!
