    I am currently a year 11 pupil and will be sitting my GCSE next month, I applied to college and got in the one I wanted to go to however I picked a course that I don't want to do so much anymore as it won't benefit me long term. I decided over the last year that I would like to be a primary school teacher but I don't have any idea where to start.

    Can anybody tell me what would be best to study at college that will help me when I begin a teaching course possibly in university.

    (I am currently on track to getting around 9 GCSE A* - C)

    Yes and languages and humanities too pick subjects out of those that you enjoy and feel you will get a good grade in.
