    I am choosing my options. I know all of the ones I am doing except one backup choice. I was just wondering if anyone here could tell me what GCSE RS is like (new spec obviously). It sounds interesting but I don't enjoy RS lessons and I am bad at English - which doesn't help.

    My other choice is NCFE Business. Does anyone know what it is like?

    The other options are triple science (which I have already picked and things like music etc which I am definitely not doing. I have already picked my main choice from that column.

    So could people please tell me what GCSE RS is like and what NCFE business is like? Thankyou

    RS is pretty dull, It doesn't change much from pre-gcs; chances are you'll focus on Islam and Christianity and how they approach various things like worship, death, marriage etc.

    I'm on edexcel and all the things like abortion, capital punishment and euthanasia were removed and replaced with Catholic mystery plays, studying the liturgy and other less interesting things, considering I'm Catholic/at a Catholic school and have done/seen It all previously.

    I don't know about aqa though! I really like the style of questions in RS as they are pretty easy and straight forward in comparison the new maths exams

    AQA RS Isn't my personal idea of fun and if you don't enjoy it now, I doubt that's going to change.
