    I take it GCSEs include BTECs and CACHE too?

    If so I'll be taking 9 GCSEs, possibly 10 if I pick up Media Studies next year (year 11).

    So is it enough? Some people take 12.

    It's really nothing to be worried about at all, anything more than 8 is more than enough.

    depends on your college/sixth form, some requires (e.g mine) atleast 5 Cs

    Bruh, At least you're doing 9.
    I'm doing 8
    You're probably sat there saying to yourself "He is so lucky!"
    WRONG!
    Doing 8 GCSE's means that if i fail at 3, the rest have to be c's or above to actually get a GCSE Certificate as most schools see a pass at 5 A*-C.
    Secondly, there are some people on these forums who get 12A* ( ikr).
    That would look better than someone who only did 8 but nevertheless got 8 A*.
    Others think doing 8 GCSE's is easy, Yes and No. If you are good at all 8 then you're saved, but I'd rather do 9 or more, because even if i mess up in a few all the others I can do just as well in.
    I dunno why I was rambling on.

    Back on topic:
    9 GCSE's?

    Yeah and it kinda makes it easier for you - less subjects to revise compared to those doing 12.

    Our school only lets us do nine, unless you take an online course or something like that

    I took nine I think and t's not stopped me from getting anything I wanted. So I would say 9 is enough
