You want to choose both what you enjoy, what you're good at, and what you think you might want a career in in the future. That is because if you don't choose something you enjoy, you won't be having much fun in school, and if you don't choose something you're good at, you may struggle to get into colleges and sixth forms, and finally, something you may want to do in the future for obvious reasons.

Just choose what you enjoy and what you're best at. These options aren't the end of the world and you can change them any time until a few months into year 10

This doesn't make sense. It's a question You have to answer. No one else will sit the exam for you.

Does your school not have an options evening? Where you get to look at all of the options they offer and the curriculum for each.

Really your gcse options don't really narrow anything down that much as most of the stuff necessary for all careers and a-levels is mandatory. For example you don't need to pick a specific GCSE to become a lawyer or a Doctor (as the sciences, English and maths are compulsory).

Your GCSE's don't really matter when it comes to options all that really matters is that you do well in the subjects that you chose. This is of course with the exception of certain subjects like languages, technologies and humanities (although in my school you are allowed to take history and geography at a-level without doing it at GCSE level) which you usually need to do before taking them at a level.

Go for higher maths and triple science. And for 3 options, anything science based. this will get you far.

Are you sure because it can be an extremely important night for you when it comes to deciding what to take.
