    i am in year 11 now and obviously have already taken my options and are coming to the end of them. i want to be a teacher and chose options that i though would help me with it. But to be honest it doesnt matter what you take, i regret taking my options because they are just all work and are boring. I would say take options that you know you are going to enjoy because the decisions you make when you go to college are the ones that will help you get a job. so enjoy school while you can with subjects you know you are going to enjoy.
    hope this helps.

    Hi,
    My name is Daniel [Personal details removed by Moderator]-Age 16. if you wish to be a doctor, it would be good to take PE, Tripple Science (the seperate option), Performing arts (it includes music and drama) I have also heard Geography is very good for getting you into University. Please Bare in mind that you will probably have to go to go to university to be a teacher).

    Hi Rachel!
    I'm in the same dilemma! I want to be mainly some sort of doctor. I'm confused about weither I should take double science + applied science or just triple science. How many options does each take up?

    Triple Science isn't an option to choose in year 9. Depending on your exam board (if it is aqa) you will be chosen to do triple science in year 11, Triple sceince means you have to be good at Chemistry, Physics and Biology because each count as a single GCSE. If you want to become a doctor, your GCSE options don't really matter as long as you have Triple Science (preferably) but double will be fine (only counts as 2 GCSEs). You will however need to get high grades across the board as in B+. A - Level is the one that will define whether you get into medicine or not. For A-Levels, you have to do Biology, Chemistry and Physics, and as a fourth option I would recommend English Literature (as it is held higher than language) or Mathematics - depending on what you are good at.

    Good luck =)
