Hi,

I need to self teach 2 more GCSEs, and I'm looking for ones that are relatively straight forward. I don't mind if they're IGCSEs, but they can't be subjects that require practicals/controlled assessments, etc. - just 100% exam.

Any suggestions?

Thanks!

Definitely agree with RE, it's relatively simple

Maths is self-teachable. A good textbook and you'll be fine.

Humanities where technique is needed are harder to self teach.

If you're good at sport PE is an option - the theory part is straightforward and basic biology really, so you just have to do the practical assessment which, again, will be easy if you already play at least two sports

Thanks for the suggestions. I already have an A* in Maths and an A in RS, so I can't do those. PE requires practical work though, doesn't it?

I think something more obscure, like stats, sociology, psychology etc. would be better as I have the core GCSEs, but I don't know if these are easy to self teach.

Anything else?

Latin is 100% exam based, is a bit different and quite easy to teach if you have the right textbook. We use John Taylor at school and it has all the grammar you need to know for gcse and you can download the vocab list off the internet

I know a lot of people who have self-taught astronomy.

Psychology sounds like a good bet too; it's mostly facts and case studies.

noooo, don't teach yourself sociology. I'm doing it for GCSE and I need guidance. Also the pass rate for sociology is not that high apparently from what my teachers have said. But that is for the AQA board.

Self teach psychology. I'm sure the gcse option will be relativity easy as there are case studies and a bunch of theories.
