You are about to make some very important decisions about the subjects that you will follow for the next two years in school. It is extremely important that you take time and care when reading all the information in this booklet.

There are a number of subjects that will be new to you so be really sure that you know the type of work you will be expected to carry out if you choose one of them. There is a lot of information for you but if you are unsure about any of it please contact the teachers in the subject areas and talk to them about it. Your parents / carers will also be able to give you help and advice about the best choices.

Do’s and Don’t

Do read the booklet carefully

Do talk to your parents and teachers

Don’t choose a subject just because your best friend does.
