Hiya, year 11 student here. Out of those subjects, I studied Geography{AQA} and Triple Science{AQA} I also studied Spanish {AQA} so have some idea of what studying a language is like. Firstly I don't think you should be taking subjects because they're "easy" you should take them because you like them because if you like a subject your chances of doing well in are improved anyway. Personally, I really enjoyed doing triple science at GCSE as I found a love for science that I did not know I had! It does contain a lot of content but if you keep on top of it you should be good! I have a thread I could link on here {on TSR} with my advice to GCSE students for studying etc.. if that would help? I really do recommend triple science if you think you will enjoy it as if you decide to study science at A-level it does give you that little bit more of a head start (obviously you can study a science having done combined science as well so don't worry too much!). I know a few people who found science tricky but as long as you make sure you try to understand the concepts as you learn them rather than trying to understand them right before exams you should be good! With regards to geography, I had a bit of a love-hate relationship with it (this is an individual experience though). I disliked it at the start of year 9 but hated history more so took it however by the end of year 11 I quite liked it and did well in it. I found it quite tricky but when I got to understand everything it was quite enjoyable and I like the lessons! I think it's always good to study a language at GCSE as it helps with memory improvement alongside actually learning some of the language. It is always a good skill to have. Honestly, I did struggle with some aspects of the exams (listening mainly) but your grade takes into account all areas (writing, speaking and reading) which I was strong at so it was alright. Nothing is going to be easy you have to try hard and study for every subject, if you take into account what you are good at and enjoy it it will make your school years and learning so much more enjoyable! In summary please take what you enjoy and know you may do well at and also keep in mind this post is just my opinion it is not the same for everybody!!

Hope this helps!
