Hi! I'm a student in Year 10 and I have decided to drop Spanish, as it is stressing me out, majorly!

I take these GCSE subjects:

-Mathematics
-Further Mathematics
-English Language
-English Literature
-Religious Studies
-History
--Biology
-Chemistry
-Physics
-Design and Technology

And Spanish before drop...

What GCSE subject would you recommend me to take instead?

Preferably a really easy subject as I, hopefully, want to try and achieve all grade 9's for my GCSE.

The easiest subjects are probably Media Studies or Travel and Tourism, but easiest isn’t always a good thing, as those 2 subjects are generally very useless unless you definitely know what you want to do.

Thanks for the help, honestly I have no idea about Travel and tourism and I am not interested in Media studies. I am thinking about taking maybe statistics or business studies...

Business is a good GCSE, but I’d advise swapping it for Economics at A-Level.

I have no interest for business at GCSE, as I hope to do medicine in the future!

Take it as your replacement for Spanish right now, then disregard it for A-Levels.

Do you need to take another? 10 is plenty.

Statistics is very easy if you're confident with Maths

I think you should take one Language at GCSE, even if not Spanish.

Gcse Statistics.
Nearly all of its content is shared with GCSE Maths.
Low grade boundaries.
Lots of essay type questions.

I only studied GCSE stats for 3 months, came out with a 7.

Well done, I am leaning towards this mostly!

How about:
Geography
Sociology
Business studies

I will comment that besides personal satisfaction there is no need to get all 9s. Even the very best universities never demand anything close to all 9s. I'd advise focusing more on doing well in 10 subjects or so.

I'd do a language like the previous post has said. I don't know much about 'easy' subjects since it's subjective (no pun intended ) but I have heard that health and social care and Citizenship studies is fairly easy.

Even if you plan is to do medicine at uni, some medical school still have a general entry requirement that require you to have at least a grade 5 at GCSE in a modert foreign language such as French, German, Spanish & Italian etc.
