I'm picking my GCSE options soon and in the future, I want to be either a lawyer or doctor. I'm thinking about picking History, triple science and for my last option either sociology or french. What should I pick: french or sociology?

which one do you think would enjoy more? sociology may be helpful but not necessary for law and a language is always a good gcse to have.

Honestly the difference is minimal - above all, when making your decision, think about which subject you enjoy most and are more motivated to get a good grade in. Personally I think French would be useful as many law applicants take language A-Levels or at least have some experience with languages although it isn't necessary. French would show your ability to communicate which would be quite good for Law. If you aren't planning to take either of those subjects to A-Level, at the end of the day it doesn't matter, so pick the one you like
(Some unis require C in a MFL at GCSE; however, this is more of a recommendation than a requirement, it's not the end of the world if you don't have it)

you literally just learn some definitions and most of it is just common sense. The topics I remember doing was family, crime and deviance, research methods(this one was quite difficult tbh) and a bit more. However if you’re in set 1 for French then you should probs stick to it. But I’m only saying sociology because 1. It’s easy. 2. Very interesting. I was so highly unmotivated then but sociology was one of the subjects that I worked hard on.

I do Sociology at A-level and coincidentally also want to be a lawyer lol. But in my opinion I think Sociology would help you more in social situations which law revolves around. French could help you if you work in France or within a french sector or translator perhaps. But go for Sociology, it will definitely compliment History and interlink here and there. xxx hope this helps
