    Hello to all. I was considering taking 2 or 3 self study GCSE's for September to take in June. My advice is which ones. I've narrowed it down to

    Law
    Psychology
    Sociology
    Economics
    History

    So which ones should I self study that are easy?
    Don't want to hear about how I shoudn't take on too much etc..

    Erm i'm not sure but maybe psychology and sociology would be okay to teach yourself? You could just get textbooks for them and everything...I woldnt recommend history because you would have to do essays for it as well...hope that helped? =s

    Personally I would do history and psychology because they appeal most to me but if I were you I would look carefully at the specifications and decide which two you will find the most interesting etc. Doing one because itt'd easy but find boring will be just as hard as one that's more difficult but you find interesting and have enthusiasm for.

    You should try to assess which subjects you have the most aptitude for and which courses appeal to you the most. It is also worth considering the practical requirements. If coursework is required, then you need to think about how you would get this authenticated.
