Choices at Years 8 and 9
In Year 9, you will have to choose which courses you want to study in Years 10 and 11. The choices you make will affect how you spend your time during the next two years at school, and may also help you decide which college course or career you want to do in the future. Speak to your parents/carers, teachers and careers adviser to help you decide. Don’t choose courses just because your friends are choosing them.
Here are some things to think about.
What are your favourite subjects?
What do you enjoy and find interesting?
What do you do well at?
Do you like writing projects, working things out, or designing and creating things?
Do you have hobbies or do things at home which have given you new skills?
