    What do you think of these options? Btw I'm not good at science as I'm in set 3 and sets 1 and 2 get priority for triple science but I don't enjoy it anyway. Would the rest be too much of a workload? Those are my only options as I get either double or triple science and 3 other options and I'm academic not practical and good at humanities plus enjoy them. They only offer French that's the only language they offer and compulsory GCSEs are: RE, maths, English lit and language and either double or triple science.

    They are fine and tbh if you are poor at science then you shouldnt have to do it and instead find something you are better at. Notwithstanding if its compulsory...

    Yes it is compulsory either double or triple. I'm not awful at it as I get fairly okay test scores; my average in my report was 67% after getting my worst ever score of 52% but nobody did well and my best was 92%. I'm in set 3 and I'm not awful at it but not as good as my friends in the top set who regularly score in the 90s with the occasional 100%. I think the worst score my friend ever got was 70 something percent. They're taking triple science as are most of my friends and I feel left out as I'm academically able otherwise in maths (set 2) and English (set 1) even though they still do better in those than me even when I do very well. Sorry for the rant.

    The only thing that matters at GCSE is grades and dong the GCSE id its a requirement at A level. Just do well and options need not be closed off to you. If you were going to do humanities at A level then its no loss.
