    We all have one, don't we? Choosing GCSEs is quite manic and we're so young when we do.

    For me I wish I'd taken Music or Drama, or carried on French which I dropped at the end of Year 10 as it was a twilight class and it was making me tired.

    Anyone have any regrets on GCSE choices?

    Hmm, that gets me thinking, my school didn't do Psychology at GCSE but did at A-level.

    Is it still a GCSE? Sociology used to be and my school didn't offer that - I would've taken Sociology at GCSE because I'm sure it would've been pretty soft...

    I don't think sociology is anymore, my school doesn't offer it. I would have done photography too...

    I definitely wish I'd taken History but people were like "It's too hard" , "My brother said there's too many dates to remember" ect. etc.

    If you could do astophysics at GCSE, astrophysics.

    Of the ones they actually offered, design tech or something it was called at my school, essentially wood work/construction type stuff.

    My Options were ICT, History and Business Studies.

    Wish i could have not taken humanities as it was such a nothing subject and taken french. I had it as my third choice but didn't get it so did business instead.
