Hi @samirah9

Honestly, all GCSEs will require revision, especially if you want to do well and achieve high grades.

When choosing your GCSE options there are many things to consider such as:

Will you enjoy the subject enough to study it for 2 years?

What options will these GCSEs open for you regarding your future?

Do you get on well with the teachers who teach the subjects you are considering? (controversial but I think it makes a difference for some)

Are you just choosing the subjects based on what others have said about it?


Although it may not seem like such a life-changing decision now, it does impact what you'll be able to do at sixth-form/college and then university if you decide you want to go down that route.
Take your time talking to your teachers about each GCSE and what exactly each subject involves regarding content and assessments.

Good luck!
