As the title says, What GCSE subjects do you wish you had taken?

I wish I took GCSE art instead of Spanish. I ended up dropping Spanish half way through year 11, so I ended up wasting a lot of my time.
I wish I did drama instead of Citizenship. I enjoyed some topics in Citizenship and the lessons were quite fun a lot of the time, we took a trip to the House of Parliament as well, but was I actually interested in the subject? No. I wouldn’t have taken it if it wasn’t for my parents looking down on drama and wanting me to do something more academic.

I would have enjoyed taking a language as well, like Spanish. I’ve always wanted to learn Spanish but my school only offered French and I was never interested in French.

sociology, triple science

ICT or Business. ICT was my original third option and Business was my backup but unfortunately, they both clashed with my other options (Art and History) so I had to choose a different one (Textiles is fun but also hell when paired with Art 0-0)

French
Business, because I'm interested in the subject

Same here. I loved both French and Spanish in years 8 and 9 (we only did Spanish from year 8 onwards).
I chose French for GCSE, but the teacher ruined it a bit for me. He was a very good teacher (he was one of the deputy/assistant head teachers as well). But it was just some of the clowny comments and general cheesiness in lessons that put me off. So yeah i wish id done Spanish instead. Would have ended up with a different teacher.

yeah, i go to a grammar school so they limit the amount of creative subjects and increase the amount of "helpful" practical ones
computer science 100%. I took art and regret it more than anything, it's useless to me now since I'm not planning on taking any creative subjects in the future. I wish I'd taken comp sci since now I wanna do it at college but know little to nothing about programming, so I'll be really behind if I do take it at A level. Also I've finished art gcse now since I'm a y11 and I probably won't even get a very high grade since it's such a difficult subject, its really just pointless and only ever stressed me out over the last three years when I could have been doing a more productive subject.
