I did DT but not PE. Obviously there's coursework for both, I've heard there's a quite a lot for pe, and for dt (aqa) it was designing and making the product, which counted for 50% of the final grade (in 2019)
I did both dt and art, and although there was quite a bit of work at times, I found that art really helped my dt and vice versa. On the whole I found it a relatively nice subject
Have you any thoughts on what you might like to do for A levels/uni/career etc?

I took DT but there is sooo much course work. Like we have to fill 40 A2 pages in size 7 font which is ridiculous. I didn’t take PE but I know there’s a lot of cross over between biology and Pe if you like biology. Not sure what you have to do for coursework. With tech, the revision for exams I found especially hard because there’s so much. Depends what career path your heading down?

Dt- Taking along side art may be very helpful with the drawing aspect. There is a lot of coursework- 50% of the grade! But everyone who I know (myself included) who has taken it has really enjoyed it. As long as you can stick to deadlines the coursework will be manageable.
PE- not as much coursework. Lots of biology crossovers (but can't use biology terminology in answers). Theory and practical lessons. From what I've heard very enjoyable lesson for sporty people!
