    Hi,

    Do whatever you like the most. I find that History and Economics are both brilliant subjects (Enterprise is pretty much useless). It's only GCSE so choose the one which most appeals to you.

    Hope this helps

    I'd personally take economics and history since they are much more respected and are more useful. However, bare in mind that both are pretty hard IGCSE subjects. Since it's only IGCSE I'd go with the subjects you are more interested in as you'll ultimately end up with higher grades which is the end goal as no-one really cares about your actual subject choices.

    I actually can't agree more with you here, its all the grade that matters. Thanks a lot for the advice! It was really helpful, I guess for year 10 i'm going to lock in Media Studies, Economics and History as my subjects.
