    Hey there!
    I am in Year 7 and we choose our options for our GCSE's in Year 8 (since we get a taster and we officially start them in year 9) and I don't know what to choose. I have vague ideas in mind, and I don't want to overdo it with too many subjects, just the core ones necessary. Are these ok?

    History
    Psychology
    Business Studies
    Art
    Spanish
    R.S

    Any ones that I should change? It's already in the second/third term of Year 7 but I can't look at look at the choices/blocks as they change every year. Any advice???
    Thanks!

    Seems like a good choice. You have chosen a variety of subjects that can lead you to different career paths.

    10-12 GCSE's is what you should aim for. Most people I know have 11.
    This includes 2 English, 2/3 science, maths, a language, history/geography and Rs.
    Choose two more subject that you enjoy. I suggest having art and business studies from your list so you have a variety of subjects.

    this is very useful, as I have already put down these subjects but id don't want to overwork myself with too many subjects as I have already stated. And we can only do a maximum of 4 GCSE’s

    Art is too much work unless you are really good at it , business is a pointless GCSE
    I would recommend Spanish but only take 1 language
    Psychology is again not that strong , if you have an interest in it then take it for A-level.

    English and maths are a must, as 99% of employees ask for them. The rest would depend on what career you want to go into. For anything medical then the sciences and psychology would a good add.
