    I'm in year 9 and I will pick my GCSE options in about a month. I am thinking about taking Philosophy and Ethics ( Edexcel) as philosophy has always interested me. However, some of my friends say the subject is easy and does not look good on your cv, and from what I have read about the subject sounds like Religious Education which I am not keen on. I would like to choose a subject which interests me and that will benefit me in the future. Can someone help me?

    Don’t worry about GCSE options for looking good on a CV. It’s A-level choices and then any further education that really makes an impact. If you want to do it, then do it. I have friends who took it a few years ago and they really enjoyed it.

    Your GCSE choices are not going to affect jobs, universities etc.
