    So I was wondering, how many GCSEs are normal? At my school the normal is 9/10 GCSEs. And I'm taking 11 including one external one. I need to take one more to get to 12, so my choice is Geography vs Latin. I hate both these subjects with a PASSION. However, I mainly hate Geography because of the teachers.
    My current choices are
    Chemistry
    French
    History
    English Lan
    English Lit
    RE
    Maths
    Further Maths
    Physics
    Biology

    May I ask why you want to do 12? 9 or 10 GCSEs is fine, I did 10 personally. I don't recommend doing subjects you hate, as you're unlikely to do as well in them

    Why do you want to do 12? 10 was the norm in my school.

    10 is the minimum in our school (unless you do lots of extra curricular) and I want to be so more than the minimum.

    My year was a weird one we walked out with 11-14 GCSEs because they decided to scrap some exams and introduce others, but we got the chance for more.
