What GCSE options did you pick?Watch
History (work, but my favourite GCSE and probably my highest mark, however I am seriously struggling with the A level, so make sure you like some aspect the topics you'll end up doing)
Drama (gotta be prepared to write essays)
Latin (good if you're good at English because there's a large verse element)
DT (which I dropped)
Double Science (Worth 2 GCSEs)
Had to choose a P.E GCSE, picked Sports Science (OCR). Just 1 exam in year 10 and tons of coursework. Not difficult, but a real time consumer. My 2 'real' options as it were are Computer Science (OCR) and Drama (AQA). CS is a lot of subject knowledge but as a 7 at the moment I feel decently confident. Drama is my passion, the only thing I get 9's in - you need to be prepared for essay writing though, as someone else said.
