    I hope this is the right place to post a question like this, haha.

    I'm currently in yr9 and I'll be choosing my options soon. Here's the list so far (if there's anything on there you think I shouldn't go for/things I should know, please tell me!):

    - Biology
    - Chemistry
    - Physics
    - English Language
    - English Literature
    - Maths (I'm a bit confused about this one. If I were to take higher maths, would I still take the regular one?)
    - Geography
    - French
    - Latin (if regular maths has to be taken along side higher, I won't bother with Latin)
    - Drama
    - Music

    As you can see, I'm currently considering both drama and music. Is it a good idea to take both of them? Will there be a lot of work involved? I love to act, but I also love music. I know my parents want me to take drama and so does my teacher, but my father and piano/sax teachers were also hinting that music might be a good idea.

    Thanks for your help!

    PS. I do want to study physics later on, so are there any other subjects I should consider?

    I think with maths, if you take higher it's just one class. At least that's how it works in my school
    I can't tell you an awful lot about drama or music, but French and Latin together is a brilliant combination.
