    Which one do you enhoy the most?
    Which one will you get the best grade in?
    Will you continue either to A level or part of your future career?

    Art can be relaxing if you adore it, but a lot of people report they didnt realise how much work it involved and get overesteemed.

    Also if you are doing other creative subjects like Music, Drama, Photography, then skip art.


    RS is short and you cna get a decent grade if you are moderately interested.

    At GCSE level its not oing to matter so go for grade and enjoyability.

    RE (aka RS) is such an easy subject. No joke.

    Christianity
    Know the teaching "Love thy neighbour"?
    Know the teaching "Thou shall not kill"?
    Know the Parable of the Goats and the Sheep?
    Know the Golden Rule (Treat others how you wish to be treated)?
    That's set you up for questions on abortion, war, violence, euthanasia, poverty, and charity.

    Hinduism
    Know Ahimsa (No harm/violence)?
    Know about Samsara (Reincarnation)?
    Know about Dharma (Duty)?
    Know about Karma (Luck)?
    Know Moksha (A Hindu's main goal, to be one with Brahman)?
    That's set you up for questions on abortion, war, violence, euthanasia, poverty, and charity.

    (I'm aware others do different religions from this, but these are the two I do)

    This is coming from a person who gets 8s and occasional 9s, after using "Love thy neighbour" a dozen times in questions.
    It's super easy.
