My DD is in Yr 9 & will choose her GCSE options next January. Although still a fair way off, she has been thinking about what to do, although I know her choices will be limited because of numerous compulsory subjects & however the school work out teaching blocks.
She would like to do Art which she thinks will be relaxing, but having read horror stories on this forum about the coursework, I'm not so sure.
