Hi! I'm about to start my GSCE'S and haven't chosen my option's yet. My dream job is to be a hotel manager. I looked it up online and there wasn't specific or recommended subjects to study if you want to work in that related field. What would you recommended I should choose? Please answer, I'm quite confused!

The GCSEs that you do in relation to the career/ sector you want to work in don’t matter too much in the grand scheme of things. Does your school offer travel and tourism as a level 2 BTEC? You’d gain the experience from a BTEC course or apprenticeship if you want to pursue hotel management in the future. I suppose geography and history might be relavent or maybe DT?

I suggest you work backwards. Look at some potential apprenticeship courses or similar that might interest you, and look at what the entry requirements are or what they suggest you have done, and choose your options from there. I’d imagine that it doesn’t matter too much though, if you like drama then pick drama

GCSE choices don't really matter - just pick what you enjoy, but I agree with the above.

thanks for the info, but would geography, history and DT be relevant in that?

DT I think is a good idea so you are used to doing portfolio work.

You might want to go down the route of doing a management degree, so GCSEs relating to business studies, management studies, finance & accounting (nearest thing is maths which you'll do anyway), marketing or media studies etc will be useful.

Try to avoid some of the above!
While it's great you have a desired career in mind, it's better to have more open skills since there aren't any requirements for Hospitality anyway.

Geography, History, Economics all sound good.

I'd try to avoid Business or Media Studies, as they're considered a 'soft subject' (Although GCSE Business really wasn't as 'soft' as people make it out to be, especially when compared to 'academic' subjects like Religious Studies or English Literature) and especially avoid BTECs, but IGCSE Travel & Tourism might be worth looking into.

My school doesn't teach Economics but I have decided to chose Geography. Do you think that one subject can be to my advantage?

Geography is a useful choice, yeah. It's well-respected and applicable for Hospitality.
