    try to take a non academic subject, like food tech or drama. Gcse's dont really influence what jobs u get but its a good place to start

    GCSE choices don't actually matter too much so don't worry yourself! Pick what you like and if you know what A Levels you want to take, see if those courses need any specific requirements e.g. my school sixth form required a B in English Literature for Psychology and my Sixth Form College (which I go to now) needed a B in Biology/Double Award Science and a B in Maths to take Biology. Generally a lot of courses (except languages) don't require any optional GCSEs, just the core science, maths and english.

    So pick what you enjoy and what you're good at!
