Hi, we have to pick our GCSE options in a month tomorrow. Our compulsory subjects are maths, english, (double)science and RE, so we have 3 options to choose ourselves. I'm torn between triple science, french, history, geography and business studies. In the subjects that we do now (science, french, history, geography) my target grades are all 8s (in the new grading system).
Any suggestions from others picking or have already done some of these subjects at GCSE level.
ps. when we get to GCSE level we won't have any coursework so i am not basing it off how much/how hard the coursework is.
Thanks for your help!

try to have a variety to keep your options open when choosing a levels, i'd probably say french history and geography (or triple science instead of geography/history) are the best three in my opinion. but at the end of the day, just do what you enjoy and what you think you can get a good grade in.

If you want to keep everything open do triple science for sure, pick one between history/geography and do a language, otherwise pick what you like doing.

Definitely choose Triple science, it's pretty fun and it gives you a lot of choice in the future. Make sure you choose stuff you enjoy.

Triple science is always highly regarded, and is really fun too. Languages are a great asset, but aren't necessarily for everyone. Having a humanity is also good as it gives you more options when it comes to a level, and business studies can be quite easily taken ab initio at a level. It really depends on what you think you might want to do in coming years, whether that being at school or at uni
