    I’m picking my GCSE options on Wednesday and I’m interested in a career in Law. I’m going to pick History , French and for my last option either : Sociology or drama.

    Drama- I’ve loved drama since I was a little kid. I’ve been in many drama performances.

    Sociology- It sounds really interesting and looks useful for the career I want to go into.

    Should I pick Sociology or Drama? Does anyone study GCSE Drama or Sociology and can tell me what it’s like ?

    I don't study either but I know close friends who do. Sociology is much more in-depth and research-based, whereas Drama is much more practical and I guess you could call it fun. I'd suggest Drama, it's more popular.

    as far as I know (even though I don't do drama but my mates do ) THERE IS A LOT OF WORK! and most of it is writing and not performing - you still perform but you have to comment in your portfolio about everything - so just make sure you are prepared to graft!

    good luck!

    i’m in year 11 and I do french, i’m a top student but french is HELL, drop french and take both drama and sociology! trust me, you’ll get far better grades in those subjects and that’s what counts.

    I have no experience of studying sociology, so I can only recommend drama. I’m in Y10 and really enjoying it. Drama is one those subjects that’s quite easy to do well in, so long as you’re a half-decent actor and you can write fairly well. Unfortunately there is more writing involved than practical than there used to be (at least in the AQA syllabus), but as long as you can analyse drama and explain the effects on the audience, you’re all set. It’s a great GCSE as it shows that not only are you confident but you can work in a team and reach deadlines - all of which are great qualities to have. You’re also encouraged to work with a variety of people, some of which you probably haven’t even talked to before, so it’s great for confidence-building.

    All in all, it’s a great subject - I certainly recommend it.

    Even though I’m sure there is a lot of work, drama could be a fun option for you compared to French and history. I would say maybe do sociology if you think you might decide to do an alevel.
