    Pretty sure everyone in the UK has to do GCSE maths, I did both and found both of them fine but did better in chemistry (A* v A)

    Don't you have to do both? I had to. Maths is also mandatory anyway so why'd you need to pick?


    That said, maths is more useful.

    Without a doubt do maths. You need a C or above in maths and english to do anything really.

    How old are you and why aren't you in school? You said you missed the june examinations and you're sitting as a private candidate. Aren't you leaving this a little late?

    Yep, do maths, most schools require both but maths is the one that is legally mandatory - you will very often see universities saying they want "At least 5 GCSEs at grade C-A* including English and maths".

    In that case definitely maths as you must have a C in order to get ay job/uni course. I'm pretty sure maths and English are compulsory tho

    Maths, it's not only required by all universities but by almost all employees nowadays. I still don't see why you can't do both, maybe get in touch with local schools to see if they can arrange something for you.
