Well, you have no say in the compulsory GCSEs but i'd say theyre manageable...although triple science can be a bit of a work load if you're doing that.
RE for me (AQA) is just memorising religious quotes and applying them to my opinions.

Can't say anything for sport or any of that matter, except i know i hate PE in general.
ICT is so boring but it's an easy quick GCSE
French is interesting, if you already have a foundation knowledge of the vocabs then you're fine
i dont have any experience on business studies sorry

Which are the compulsory subjects?

Quite a range, which could be interesting.

To me English is the biggest pain in the arse but that's compulsory anyways. Still manageable tho. Maths I got a B in when I spent all of the lessons in year 11 playing crossy road so as long as you're natural okay at it you'll get by pretty easily. The three sciences are easy to manage, really. RE is just keks, it's simple stuff. No idea about sport. I really didn't enjoy my GCSE in ICT, but the work was simple enough. French is the one most people in my school struggled to pass, but I got an A in it with very little effort so I guess it depends what sort of person you are.

Haven't a clue about business studies, sounds like decent bants tho

Unless you actually think you'll enjoy them, don't do RE or ICT. I did ICT GCSE (I assume BTEC is quite similar) in year 9 (currently I'm in year 11) and I hated it. So did everybody else. It's an extremely outdated course that has little to no relevance to modern IT, and is just utter **** in general. RE is just *******s anyway, and I wouldn't bother with unless you have to do it.

If you enjoy ICT enough to want to do a GCSE in it, do computing GCSE instead. If computing is not available, I'd say do neither. Seriously, ICT is quick and easy but it still takes 20+ hours and it just isn't worth it. Universities and sixth forms won't give a **** if you don't have ICT GCSE.
