    Okay, so a bit of background info about me:

    I’ve always loved English. From a very young age I knew that English was the career path I wanted to follow. Since I started my school year (9) this September, I’ve started to grow to really enjoy science and it has become something that I am extremely interested in. I’m choosing my options this year, and I’m looking to pick Triple Science, because honestly I’m starting love the subject and English is becoming less interesting to me.

    My parents tell me that I should peruse a career in English, the subject that I always used to love. They also say that Triple Science is very sudden but honestly, it’s become my favorite subject and something that I definetly want to study moving forward.

    Shall I go for it? Or not?

    If you like it and get good grades in science then go for it! Listen to your parent's advice but DO NOT let them decide for you, I let my mum convince to take art even though I didn't want to and hated it. If you'd rather do triple science than any other choices then there's no reason not to! I personally loved it and went on to do biology and chemistry a levels 😊

    If you enjoy Science more now then definitely go for that, even if you enjoyed English more when you were little you don’t want to do something that you don’t enjoy for the rest of your life. Think about what your parents are saying as they are obviously a massive part of your life but you do what you want to do😄

    I for one am doing triple science. However, I have a terrible teacher, affecting my understanding on triple science topics.
    If the teacher teaching triple science is good and understandable it's worth considering. But if not, you may want to get tuition because this is a pretty dense course.

    If you’re enjoying it, then definitely go for it! However, I would suggest looking at what you will be doing over the course, as I personally used to love geography, but regretted taking it for GCSE. Also ask teachers for their opinions for that extra support! Overall, I think your parents probably want what is best for you, but YOU should be the one deciding as it is what you’ll be doing for the next 2/3 years so if it is something you’re sure of, then why not!
