My compulsory GCSE's were English Lit & Lang, Double Science award, Maths, R.E. I had to choose one technology, one language and two free choices - I chose Art and ICT. ICT was compulsory as a short course but I decided to do it full course.

English (people in top sets were meant to do Lit after school, but I thought GNVQ ICT was more important)
Double Science
Maths
Intergrated Humanities or RE
We had 4 other options. If we wanted to do Spanish, we had to do French as well.

Our compulsory ones were: maths, science (double), english (lit and lang), r.e and citizenship :confused:

We had to choose a vocational GCSE in year 8, which we started in year 9 (business, travel/leisure & tourism, or health & social care) and then we got to choose 3 ourselves

Compulsory subjects at my school were:

English (and english literature for the top sets)
Maths (and statistics for the top sets, also free standing maths qualification for set 1)
Science - either the double award or applied science.
RE - short course, but top set is made to do long course...

Citizenship+Pe also but I doubt you'll count those as there is no qualification involved.

We get to chose the remaining 3 subjects.

Compulsory:
English & Lit
Maths & Stats or Maths AS (you don't get to choose which one)
Additional science
short course citizenship
short course RE
ICT (If you don't choose the AS as one of your options)

Then, there are 4 option blocks for you to choose from, and you have to take one language and then the other 3 are whatever you want. Foy my year, the blocks were:

1) German vs. AS ICT
2)History vs. French vs. Art
3)Geography vs. French vs. Tech
4) Separate science vs. History

In answer to your Qs:

1. Because the church (powerful in those days) opposed his views so people were reluctant to accept them.

2. Because no one was there to witness :confused: sorry.

3. No idea, sorry.

Sorry, Im a tad rusty

We had to do GCSE English Language, English Literature, Mathematics and Religious Studies. Then we had to choose:

1 Language Subject - French, Spanish, German or Irish
1 Society Subject - Business Studies, History, Geography or Home Economics
1 Science Option - Single Award, Double Award or Triple Award

And then depending on the Science Option chosen we could choose 0, 1 or 2 more subjects either from the Languages, the Societies or a fourth box which consisted of - Art, ICT, T&D, Drama, Music and PE.

9 subjects had to be chosen via this system (a 10th GCSE in Music or Additional Maths could be chosen also however).
