Never heard of it. Is that an actual subject, or just a module within another subject.

What do you want to be when you grow up?
If it's anything to do with Food and Nutrition then yeh. I always tell people to do the GCSE options that they want because it's usually A levels that matter the most.
It's your life, no body else's so why should it matter to them... if you wanna do it then go for it

I did food technology for one of my subjects at GCSE because we had to do a technology subject. As said GCSEs don't have a huge bearing on what you do when you're older. When I picked my GCSEs I wanted to be a doctor so I did Child Development, IT, French, Food Tech, Additional Science as well as the core subjects at my school which were English lit and language Science, Maths and RS.

We had the choice of applied or additional science, if we did applied science we couldn't take any science A levels - which would have had a bearing on me as at the time I obviously wanted to progress into medicine which required science A levels - so check for pre requisites like that. Other than that I would stress what's been said above, do what you want. Unless you intend to take language further I wouldn't suggest doing it. I dropped french after GCSE and it was a complete waste.

As it turned out by year 11 I had realised I had a massive issue with blood and completely changed my career path and decided to go into law. I took three subjects all the way through A level; psychology, philosophy and english lang (my school also made me do general studies) and went on to do a law degree at sheffield university my point again is don't stress too much. Do the subjects that you love because they'll be the one's your more willing to put the work into and therefore the one's you'll get the best grades in

Do whatever floats your boat.
Why do people at school say its rubbish- is there a valid reason(s) why they say its rubbish? If so, then it might be worth looking into it to find out for yourself, or maybe avoiding the subject if what people say about it is true.
Although you might want to do it, it might be more beneficial picking a subject that is more common, that people have actually heard of. The subject might be ok, but its a bit specific, so unless you know you want to do something in that career area, then id give it a miss.

I don't know about Food and Nutrition, but lots of my friends do Food Tech (which I think is pretty similar) and really like it. They say it's fun and pretty interesting, though some of the vocab and key terms can be hard at first. So if you like Food Tech, I'd say it's a pretty good GCSE option - it's better to do subjects you like because you'll enjoy them more and probably end up with a better grade
