I was wondering how many GCSEs are average to do in your school?
Also, how many you are doing and what subjects are they?

I feel I've missed one or two out though.
I may be moving school within the next few weeks so I may end up changing what I'm doing.

My school does between 9-13 though.

I do ten proper ones and a 'half' one. It's supposed to be a full one, but I don't really count it.
Eng lit, Eng lang, maths, physics, chemistry, biology, RS, history, citizenship and ICT.

The 'half' one is a CiDA ICT qualification.

I'm doing 12 in school, but I taught myself latin last year and did the GCSE, so that makes 13
However, most people at our school do 12 ^-^

My school ranges from about 11 - 13 (unless you drop subjects you are performing poorly in making this figure lower)

I'm doing 13 GCSEs (though 7 of them I did last year) which are:

Biology
Chemistry
Physics
Maths
Further Maths
English Lit
English Lang
ICT
RS
French
Geography
Psychology
Drama

Everyone also does a number of AS levels in year 11. Citizenship AS is compulsory, and you do Science and English AS if you did the gcses in year 10. I am doing 3 (Science, English Lit/lang and Citizenship Studies) but some also do Philosophy and/or Economics AS if they choose it as an option, so you can potentially do 5 AS levels in year 11

Posted from TSR Mobile
I personally didn't find History particularly difficult because I really enjoyed it (i'm doing it for A level). In fact, I got 397/400 UMS marks in it! Geography on the other hand I hate and I would say is more difficult that History because there's more to remember. I guess it depends on the person though

What did u get for the ones that u already did?
Statistics: B (they made my year do higher coursework with the foundation paper so this was the highest I could get -_-).
ICT: A
Core Science: A
History: A*
French: A*
Business Studies: A*

I'm predicted A*s in the 7 I'm doing this year so should have a round 10 overall
