    I am currently in year 9. In my school we move up after gcses have finished and so I move up to year 10 on Monday. I have selected my options as Geography, History, French and Computer Science however I am beginning to doubt my choice in Geo. Partly because I'm not even sure why I picked it - it just was the one I least hated I think. Also, I'm not sure if it would be a good idea to do two essay topics. To add to this, it seems like Business Studies is really easy especially as you still do coursework. This would mean I would be able to focus more on other topics. Not that I would ignore BS. What do you think? Thanks.

    I took geography and I'm still alive loool if you're really unhappy with it, there's nothing wrong with changing your options...I don't think other people can tell you what you should take though because it's about you so do whatever you're most comfortable with

    I did both business, geography and history so I know how you feel haha, imo business doesn't take much atall it's a very easy subject so if you wanted a chilled subject, choose this, However, I didn't think Geography demanded too much and I really enjoyed the subject it's nice to do both history and geography tbh, its up to you and if you think you would be able to cope
