Ok, so who here is starting their GCSE's in september? and what subjects have you chosen and have to take anyway? ok, for those non uk peoples, GCSE's are where at the age of 13/14 a student chooses some subjects to take further, and which subjects to drop at the minimum required level. the course spans for the next 2 school years (years 10 and 11) and you end up with an a,b, ect letter mark, which is then used during collage when applying for universitys since the A-level results are not back for the time when the universitys pick thier students. if anyone wants to do a much better job than i have done, feel free too. subjects i have to keep english (eh) maths (i need it anyway, not even accounting for the fact that i like it) science (see below) PE ( it would not be so bad if the 'teachers' knew any sportys other than footbal (ya allright, soccor) and could spell, yet alone understand the word NO) ICT ( just the clait course, but a more expanded version is avalible in the choices) modules (RE, citezenship, sex education, ect, ect each in 6 week doses) choices electronics (i just like it) seperate sciences ( biology, chemestry and physics in seperate lessons, and the GCSE that would go with the standard science is used to complete the set of a GCSE each for physics, chemestry and biology) geography ( again, i like it) history ( i just like learniung about how dead person x did action y to person r) those subjects which i love to dump! food tech/cooking- everything i did came out looking the same-burnt to a crisp textiles- i am not going to end up in a chinese sweatshop am i? woodwork- i have good ideas, but the execution is terrible music- snoozetime art- i only liked the clay part of it and summer homework is a big nono. also, see woodwork PE- I wish french- i'll just hire a linguist if i want to go to a french part of canada for some reason RE- not really dropped, but relegated to 6 weeks orso a year citerzenship- see RE so is anyone else in our 20000+ community starting UK GCSE's this year?
