Though the decision is yours, it is important to also get your family’s input on the matter.
Use your school’s Subject Information Booklet and Course Requirements Booklet during the discussions.
Also, help from your teachers and Year 12 students or attend organised sessions where your can map out your career pathway. This can help you to choose the subjects for Years 11 and 12.
