I have done computer science and in my opinion it was hard and boring but its your choice it may be for you it just wasn't for me.
I was going to do triple science but didn't my friend does though and its hard and a lot of work.
geography and French are really good options and loads for people enjoy them.
I ended up taking drama history re and art.
hope his helped but at the end of the day its up to you x

computer science - dreadful: have had the worst teachers and experience, you have to teach the content to yourself; of course this may not apply to you if you have a good teacher but the programming is a bit annoying

triple science - literally combined science extended, although it's veryyy interesting and I love learning all the separate content - hard? definitely not if you put the work in, it's just extra topics which are a lot more fun and intriguing than combined
but maybe that's just because I'm a science person, although I'd definitely recommend triple science

French - I did Edexcel French not AQA, but French is a really fun subject. I loved it a lot. I hated the speaking component and I personally found reading and writing easier than speaking and listening.

Computer Science - We started GCSEs in year 9 at my old school and I did OCR Computer Science for a year and a half until I quit. To me, it’s kind of one of those subjects where you can either do it or not. The teachers I had were terrible but that may not be the case at your school.

Triple science is great!!!! French is harder for most people than Spanish but if your school only offers French/you just prefer it then it’s the right choice. I hate my geography class but I love the subject so do take it. My school doesn’t do computer science but it’s well regarded. As long as you’re happy not doing a creative subject those options will be excellent! Maybe talk to people at your school who’ve taken those subjects and see what they say as well.

I take all of those subjects except geography (albeit with different exam boards for some). Personally, I don't enjoy french (mostly because I'm no good at it :laugh:), but it's not that bad. I do really like computer science and triple science though. Not sure what yea you're in but for exams in 2022, the spec for CS is changing slightly though.

It's fine tbh. It's not that much more difficult than combined science (there are some harder bits that combined science doesn't cover, but a lot of it isn't necessarily harder, just more content). Also, there are loads of resources online etc that will help if you are struggling
