    This year we have to choose the subjects we are doing for our GSCEs. Most of the subjects are compulsory and I'm choosing Geography over History and for languages I'm doing French but I don't know what to choose for extra subjects. I'm definitely doing Drama but we have to choose another subject. I don't know what to choose between ICT/Computing, Business Studies, Music and Food Technology. I want to choose a subject with less coursework. Can someone help?

    Hi there I'm doing the same thing too hehe!! I decided it/computing over others because in the developing world IT is gonna be a huge part of it and can enter you into so many jobs where as the others may not be a useful. of course there will be slightly more coursework but hey i think its worth picking something that will be more useful to you. my school doesnt do food tech or business studies but if you're looking for something with less coursework and that'll be very useful business study sounds like a great option and one that is quite useful. I hope this helps and i hope your subject picking goes great!!

    music has a lot of coursework
