How many subjects should I take and what subjects should I choose?
If you are wondering how many GCSEs to study, it is really down to your circumstances. At school, you would typically study approximately nine subjects. If you are looking to go onto a college course afterwards, they would usually state how many they require from you and the grades. We have some learners take one subject and others take a whole range of subjects!
If you require some help choosing your subject(s), our student advisors will have a good idea as to which subjects compliment each other really well. All you need to do is think about which subject you are most likely to enjoy as if you have an interest in a particular subject, you are more likely to do well and achieve the grades you are looking for.
Maths, English and Science are the core subjects everyone must take at GCSE in England. English Language is compulsory in all schools, and so is English Literature in the majority of schools.
Science may be split into the three separate sciences (Biology, Chemistry and Physics) or we do offer the combined Science GCSE.
Whether you want to keep your future study or career choices optional or you know what you want to do, the International GCSE is a great stepping stone.
