Okay thank you. I'm glad to hear about Spanish and Geography being easy as
those were the ones I was wary of.
Yeah that is why P.E has put me off a little bit as I was looking at my school's results for the P.E GCSE for the previous year 11 and most of them only achieved a C or a D.
I would disagree with the previous poster that Spanish and Geography are easy. Languages are probably one of the GCSEs which have been changed most in the new GCSE format, and they have been made much more than just the memorising which previous years had to do. Instead of for speaking memorising the paragraphs which you have written and had marked, you now have to be able to understand the questions which the teacher is asking you and answer them with only 15 minutes iirc to prepare. This will make languages much more difficult than in previous years as you have to be able to congregate verbs on the spot, and think of complex sentences etc.
I've also never heard anyone say Geography was particularly easy. There's certainly lots of case studies to learn about. I don't take it so I can't say anything more than that.
PE, I would say depends on how good you are at biology. Don't take it thinking there will be lots of practical. There won't. (well I suppose it depends on your definition of lots). There is lots of written work, lots of memorising, and lots of biology involved.
History, personally I love it, however, it is, again, a subject which involves a lot of memorising. Dates, different actions, names etc. The essay questions can be difficult, but it is very interesting despite the difficulty.
Obviously the decision is down to you. I took history against many people saying I should take Geography instead but I preferred the course content and the teachers (yes I know that's a terrible reason to take a subject but my form teacher promised me a particular brilliant teacher so I was swayed). I was better at Geography before but I much preferred the maps side of Geography rather than the environmental geography in the course, and I liked the history topics etc. even though I wasn't particularly good at history.
So I would say go with your gut. It certainly helped me
