    Just out of interest, I'd like to know what you are taking at GCSE and the types of careers/degrees you might be interested in. If you've already completed your GCSEs, if you could give the grades you got and what you are doing now that would be great too!!

    I'm choosing this year, and I'm going to pick -

    English Literature
    English Language
    Maths
    Biology
    Chemistry
    Physics
    Geography
    Spanish
    French
    Drama

    With RS and German as my reserves! I'm interested in Maths, Languages and Linguistics at university (and possibly even Law). I don't really have a particular career in mind, but hopefully something that allows me to use my languages, because I love them! (The FCO, maybe)

    What about you?


    *Edit*
    User Bill Nye made a thread very similar to this 10 days ago (though I wasn't aware of it at the time of making this thread), so if you like this thread you should definitely check their's out too! (It's called 'What options did you pick?')

    Hey! Do RS! It’s a blessing and is easier in comparison to drama etc.I’m doing the bulk of mine this year. Literature, Language, Maths, Stats, Biology, Chemistry and Physics.I did RS, Law and German this summer just gone and got A*, B and A respectively. It’s so hard to know but all you’ve got to do is ones that you enjoy and think you’ll do well in.

    I'm pretty sure I want to do Drama though (and it's one of my best subjects)! Its going to be my number one reserve, but I don't think it's going to be my actual choice. The course does look really interesting, though.

    I’m still Yr9, but I’m pretty set on having a job that is/is similar to an Architect . Therefore I’m gonna be doing:

    Compulsories (EnglishLit+Lang, Maths, Double Science, RS)

    Design&Technology
    Art&Design
    French
    Geography

    I’m debating replacing French with something I enjoy way more, which is Food Tech, but apparently it has a bad rep for GCSE 🤷*♂️

    French
    Spanish
    History
    Computing

    For A-level I’m doing Maths, further maths, computing and Chemistry. So only one of my options actually mattered because I was doing the other ones anyway.

    I want to go into a career in maths

    I took them when I was good at languages back in year 9, then I focussed more on the subjects I needed so they became my worst subjects (got a B and a C). They were great fun though. I’m such a maths nerd so I didn’t really care about languages, incl English
