I did 7, what should I vote on?

In my school 7 was the most you could do + art was elective and I dropped that halfway through the exam. They insisted that everyone can only do single award combined science. I still don't get that logic.
7. The most we could do was eight

9 and a short course R.E so 9.5.

I don't really see the point in schools putting kids in for 12+ GCSEs, I can understand 11, (if they are doing the triple award science etc) but any more than that just puts so much pressure on the students. Plus you only really need maths/english/science and few extras to have a broad enough range that will help you in later life (i.e. getting you jobs)...

13, (12.5 actually - but what is half a GCSE if its still a pass??)
Apparently uni's just ignore half GCSE's because they're easy to pass.

I'm doing 9 altogether.

English Language (Future Pass)
English Literature (Future Pass)
Maths (Not sure, depends if I get a C on the foundation paper I'll be given the privilege to do higher next year)
Science (I'm doing well in science at the moment, but some areas are still too difficult to remember)
History (Fail)
Geography (Fail)
DT Graphics (Future Pass, probably not because of my annoying teacher)
Art and Design (Future Pass)
Religious Studies. (Not Sure)

I'm considering dropping out of one subject in particular because I find it excruiatingly dull. I'll come to that bridge when I cross it.
