    Hi I am in year 9 and I am not sure what GCSE options to take I know I am defiantly taking triple science but I need 10 GCSEs for my school and I only have 6. I can't take languages (because I am dyslexic and find them really hard.) And my only options are: Dance, Drama, DT, History, Music, Classics, RS and Geography. Which ones are better and easier to take.

    History has a lot of writing -not sure you'd want that

    Art would be a good option imo. If you are good at managing yourself as there's a lot of coursework.
    And drama would be good too.

    Depends on what you want to do later and on what you think you will excel in.

    So, if you wanted to take art subjects, you would obviously go for Dance, Drama, and Music. If you wanted to do English literature in university, you would take History, Classics, RS, and Geography.

    If you do not have any ideas on what you want to study at A-level or in university, take whatever seems interesting. It does not matter much anyway.

    Personally, I found RS and History to be easy. I did not take any of the others, sorry.
