    You will be depressed and have nothing to look forward to if u don’t.Also don’t listen to your parents to what they want you to do because its your life and you need to do things that make you happy.If you don’t pick a creative subject you will have close many career paths and you will not have certain skills needed for the workplace.I made the mistake to choose something I didn’t like and was bad at due to pressure from parents and now i am paying for it.

    Don't do the creative subjects, even if you are a creative person. It will mess you up. Do the easy ones. You need gcses in order to apply for A level courses and that's it. They dont care which subjects you picked, only how many you passed (and english and maths). I made the mistake of picking art and DT and although I enjoy both subjects, I wish someone told me it didnt matter what i chose so i could've gone for the easy gcses. Don't pick a subject because you like the teacher because I guarantee that your teacher will change. Don't go just because your friends are, because when it comes to yr11, you won't have time to be talking during class.
