      The school system in Serbia is different so I didn’t have GCSE.
      When I went to school, the 9th year was common, then you could choose your general direction in 10th grade: mathematical-technical, natural sciences, languages or social-economic. I choose mathematical-technical courses so I had more mats than the others, and also descriptive geometry which I found totally and utterly cool.

      I studied Maths (twice), Physics, Chemistry, Biology, German, English Language, Technical Drawing and their was a ninth that I can’t remember. Very STEM heavy. Of course, back in the 1980s they were O levels, GCSEs started a couple of years after I left school.
