I know that GCSE's aren't important at all and that I shouldnt be thinking too deep into this and that they don't matter and university's won't take a second glance and only care about english and maths but I'm really struggling badly because the all the options look intriguing and I have absolutely no idea what I want to do at a A-levels and with my life but I don't want to think about that yet. My deadlines tommorow and I'm really worried I would greatly appreciate help from experienced people who have already taken them
My options are :
Triple science (duals compulsory)
Computer science
Art
PE
Engineering
Music
Drama
Businesss
Photography
German
French
(Btw the compulsorys are history , geography , English Language and literature ,maths , RE , core PE

It's very difficult to give advice without knowing 1. how many subjects you must choose and 2. what subjects you're interested in. You can't like all those subjects equally, you must have a preference, what is it? Do you prefer essay-based subjects or scientific/technical subjects?

I choose Art thinking it was going to be easy but hell no ...IT WASNOT !!
If you really like art and committed to do art pieces in a life span of 2 years is fine but It was not for me mainly because I focused on my other subjects and I knew Art would take motivation and hours of perfecting to get a decent A

I'd go with German/French & Computer Science...Or perhaps both Language options. Those are far more reputable, in comparison to the others on that list. Especially the two languages.

But at the end of the idea, go with what you think you'd enjoy/are interested in. It is you that will be studying them afterall.
