Satie's Gymnopedie no.1 is a Grade 6 piece. It was on the ABRSM syllabus at the turn of the century.

The GCSE music performing standard is broadly equivalent to Grade 3 in the graded music examinations, although the total raw mark for each piece is adjusted according to the difficulty of the piece. In other words, you can get the very top marks for Paper 1 by playing Grade 4 pieces (you do not gain any extra marks for playing above that level).

If you are sure that the Satie is totally within your grasp, then you could play that. But the advice generally is to play Grade 4 pieces.

I just really love Satie's gymnopedies and gnossienes in general I'm currently working on the second page but I got a year to master it since I'm in year 10 (If I didn't got it in time might just pick Pam Wedgewood grade 3-4 songs lol). I don't know whether it's good to go against the general advice..

I'm not a music student nor an expert, but as a Satie fan, I hope your performance goes well!
