Useless - ICT (I haven't learnt anything except from the fact that we use Access for databases)

Useful - No GCSEs are really useful TBH, they're really there to lead on to more useful things IMO

Useful - probably maths (only cause it's my favourite though)
Useless - I would have to say music, only cause it's been the one I've least enjoyed.

Useful - I like maths but it's not really useful in real life situations? How does simultaneous equations help me out in any way? So I'd say English lit/geography

Useless - Media..

Useful: History. I think it's more about the skill rather than the knowledge; i know I won't need to draw upon my knowledge of the cold war on a casual bases but it did teach me to close read sources especially, and just to step away from biased opinions...

Useless: Business!!!! Words cannot express my contempt for this subject, you will literally learn nothing useful because, seriously it's so hard to summarise 'business' into one gcse so you end up skimming different topics and becoming fed up.

Art and music were almost pointless to me, well, they still are. Shame, I enjoy them both as a hobby, but doing them as subjects has butchers the joy. Oh, and unless you want to become an artist (or an architect) are 'useless'.

I see the point to everything else I'm doing. The modern foreign language, history, and the core bunch.
