I'm struggling with what to choose for GCSE... watch

    • Thread Starter

    I'm about to make the choice of which GCSE options I'm going to take. I would really be interested in a job in the forensic career branch but I don't really want to do triple science. Is there any way around it??? In my school it is compulsory to take English, Maths, Religious Studies and combined science. I have also chosen to do geography and Spanish but I would really like to do psychology and product design however if I take triple science I wont be able to take them both.
    So basically what I am asking is: Can I still be in the forensic career branch and not take the triple science GCSE???
    Any advise would be much appreciated!!!

    Don't bother with psychology GCSE. It's just nonsense waste of your time. Why do you really not want to take triple science?? Although you don't need it, it's definitely a good thing to have and will help in A Levels.
