9 is normal. A few years ago it was common to do 11-12, or even more (so some people on here may say they did this) but now 8-10 is what the vast majority of people do.

I'm doing 10 but most of my year are doing 9 (only 3 in my year are doing 10 overall
9+ is expected really- Maths, English Lit and Lang, Triple Science + 3 subjects or Combined Science + 4 subjects so please don't worry about it being bad, it shouldn't really have an effect on anything.
I'm in Year 10 as well btw

ah okay, thanks for clarifying this because I had that idea in my head as my parents and everyone else older did way more gcses. thanks

okay cool thanks for replying! yeah if I could do 10 I would because I just feel like it looks better for sixth-form or college or even uni applications. but I guess its better to do well in 9 subjects then do 10 and not as well

You're fine with 9.

My daughter is doing 8. My eldest son is doing 5. My other kids will probably do 8 each but that might change, we'll see.
