I have to pick my GCSE choices in a few weeks

Compulsory:
Maths
English lit & lang
Double science

Spanish (MFL)
History (History/Geography)

2 free choices
Latin extra choice ( studied it since yr7)

Im thinking of geography
And I cant decide between sociology/economics/triple science

Im in top set for everything
I dont like science and dont fully understand it.
Never studied sociology
Is it respected or considered soft?
Is economics worth it?

Thanks in advance
Sorry its long

I would do geography and Latin, triple science would be a solid choice but you don't seem to enjoy science

As for economics and sociology, they aren't exactly seen as soft but they're not traditional and it would be preferable to do core traditional subjects at GCSE

If you are interested in crime, family and society, Sociology would open your eyes to all of those things. I absolutely love it and am really keen to carry on at A-Level. Even though it isn't really 'traditional', Sociology is nonetheless a fun subject which still puts you through your paces!

Thankyou for all the replies
Latin does not take up one of the choices

I agree with economics and sociology not being soft but not being traditional
I believe I will not do economics as I will do it as a private candidate

I am going to do some research and decide between sociology and triple science.
Do you think triple science will be hard for me if I dislike science but am in top set for everything?

I dont mind putting the work in but will I constantly struggle with it over yr 10&11 and have little chance to get all a*s or a's
