well my school doesnt offer that. Other than science, maths and english, there is psychology, history, geography and ICT, which do u recommend (i want a subject that i can take as AS level and not cause a burden for me)

IT/History are good in my opinion having taken them at school.

I got an A* in IT and a C in history, I enjoyed IT more because with history there were a lot of exams and it is an essay based subject so you have to write quite a lot, Geography is what students generally take if they do not want to take history as there is "less writing" was what classmates would say.

i do love writing tho (im good at it), but i hate memorizing (and IT has lots of theory too, which could be a huge burden for me)

IT is quite practical because you get to build your own computer and there is coursework in the subject not just exams. I did OCR IT

Apart from the 3 important subjects what can you pick from besides the mandatory subjects you have to take such as history or geography, French or German. What can you choose from?

Remember you can take both history/geography if you know you will do well in both subjects.

Good choices! go with what your gut says, don't succumb to opinions of other people, do what subjects you find interesting not listening to what other people find easy/hard.

Again, you don't have to take both but it was just an option, people generally take both if they wish to study it further in College/university.
