anything I should do over the holidays? study my weak subjects mabye? I'm also worried about my options. I chose triple sciences geography and business studies, are they useful in the world of business or should I change any of them?? I think that they're all good but is triple science useless considering that I'm doing double anyway? but french would be too hard, and not sure that hospitality is a good idea ? thoughts.

I think revise a bit but don’t overdo it, you still have time.
For GCSEs it doesn’t matter which you pick, they won’t affect your career path, so pick the ones you’ll enjoy the most !
The only thing that certain GCSE subjects may do is give you a slight advantage at a level, as you’ll know the basics, eg if you’re going to pick business a level, business gcse will give you a foundation, however, it won’t do much else as other pupils will be coming in with no knowledge and topics will have to be ‘taught’ front the beginning

i did triple science, geography and business at gcse also :yep: i enjoyed the subjects and didn't find my optional ones too hard. you're doing triple science and double?:confused: i thought you could only do one or the other but perhaps i'm mistaken.
enjoy this summer as you'll have to do a lot of work in the summer between year 10 and 11! do a little bit of revision if you wish but don't stress.

I'd recommend doing triple. There's really not that much more to do in comparison to double (it's just extra content per subject), and you get an extra GCSE out of it.
In my opinion you don't need GCSE business at all. Even A-level business does not require a GCSE in business. It's also considered a bit of a "soft" subject, if you want to talk about subject value.
In terms of advice, ask your school what exam boards you're using for each subject and if possible get the revision guides (CGP usually the best option) for them. Use this to get a bit of a head start and get into the habit of studying.
You may also find videos on YouTube, such as those from PrimroseKitten and FreeScienceLessons (for science), MrBruff (for English) and MathsGenie to be useful preparation.
Having said that, you're only in year 10 so please don't overexert yourself!
Take care

No honestly just enjoy the time doing what u what; u don’t need to revise u can literally write revision cards for the entire paper 1 within a day or two for each subject. U have plenty of time towards the end of each year to study towards year 11 we finished everything early so we had 3 months spare to revise at school. For some subjects even mocks I didn’t revise and I got 7-9s and my friends did the same.
