Hi! I just stared my GCSE'S and I was wondering what options would be best to take. I don't really know whether to take Health and Social Care or Child Development. Suggestions?

No H&SC in my school But you should pick child development in my opinion

Thanks but apparently Child Development is harden then H&SC. Anyway I heard that H&SC counts as 2 GCSE'S while Child Development counts as one. I'm going to stick with H&SC but thanks for the advice and good luck in the future

Is it not possible to do both at your school?

My friend who does both H&SC and Child development has so much content that overlaps (for example something called PIES ,which I forget what it stands for).
She literally handed in the same work to both her teachers and saved so much time.

I wouldn't say Child Development is harder but it's a lot more work than what I've seen.

At the end of the day it's your decision. Both of them would be suitable as a stepping stone for midwifery

Thanks for the advice; it's helped me make my final decision
