Choose the one you enjoy most. You could pick both if your school allows you to do that

Why? Please justify your suggestion, as it may just cause the OP unnecessary stress trying to add these

Exactly, but why? I would not suggest ever doing a language at GCSE unless you enjoy it at KS3 and are relatively good, as for humanities they are good to have but again, I would suggest only taking what you are good at/enjoy for GCSE, not trying to force certain subjects in there.

I understand what you are saying but sometimes we have to do subjects that will help us in the next stage, even if it’s not even relevant in the future. Languages can be fun (I enjoyed GCSE Spanish) and humanities can also be too (I did RS and geography). Advice- obviously pick a subject that you may continue studying in sixth form/college or will be required for a future course; also pick the subject you know you’ll be motivated to study for. My cousin took photography and she enjoyed it. With food tech, I think it would be like a hobby which would be quite nice as a subject to take if you wanted a subject that doesn’t require many hours of work.😃 I would define you recommend taking a language, it’s a life skill after all!

Definitely not saying that taking a language doesn't benefit you, or humanities but however for food tech it is not a "hobby" it is a GCSE course, there is a lot of science involved so do not taking it thinking you can get a 9 while grating some cheese on toast. Understanding theory is 50% of the Food Technology GCSE (AQA)

I’m sorry if I’ve offended anyone but I’m really struggling to see how food preparation would be a GCSE subject.
