I am currently in year 9 and am picking my GCSE Options soon.
I really want to do Graphics and Ressistant Materials, both DT subjects. Will this be more extra work (because most of the work is pratical) and will there be more work than most other subjects?

Not really, as the majority of work has to be done in class.

I warn you, however, that the two courses will be basically identical aside from the medium you work in. I had a friend in my Food Technology class who also did RM and he said the coursework was very tedious because it was the same things.

I wouldn't advise it . Doing 2 dt options that are quite similar to each other .... Its mostly the same Knowledge and skills . You won't get alot of variety of knowledge / skills . If your interested in the creative route maybe try art
.you will gain more skills and it's quite different to dt . ( So it won't be boring ! ) I did both dt (product design ) and art together and I loved it . transferable skills and you get a wider range of knowledge . Not to mention you won't get board.
