Well if you are at GCSE level then you should probably do History.
If you at A -Level you could do English lit, History and Politics if your school has politics.

oh wait, i see it’s titled gcse - sorry! At gcse basically just take the subjects you’re interested in as gcse’s are only a pathway to a-level. Have a think about what you want to take for a-levels and make sure you meet the criteria for them (usually you just need essay writing skills for politics but if your school offers it, it is helpful to study gcse or a level politics). Feel free to drop me a message if you want more specific advice as i’m about to start a degree in politics

History is a probably good bet for politics. If your school offers economics it would be relevant to, maybe business studies too. It's GCSEs pick subjects you like and you're good at. If you're good at maths, pick further maths! Don't limit your options solely to Politics, in a years time you may want to do something completely different even though your heart is set on politics right now. In assumption that you're planning to do A-Levels consider what subjects you need to study something like government and politics or English. Also, because you're planning on politics try and see if your school has a debating society, it'd be good experience and a basic initial insight into politics.
