Help on Subject Choice
This may be the first time you have the chance to choose which subjects you want to study. It’s important that you choose your subjects carefully, as getting the right mix of subjects will affect your future in school, at third level and in the work force.
Make sure to choose your favourite subjects. If you are good at a subject it will come naturally to you, and if you enjoy it, you will excel at it.
It is also vital that you take into account future college and career paths and ensure that when it comes to applying for higher education you are not caught out because you did not study a particular subject at Leaving Certificate level. Organise a meeting with your Guidance Counsellor who will have knowledge of the subject requirements necessary to gain entrance into particular college courses. Get advice from the teacher of the subject and ask them what the syllabus covers. Speak to other students who have studied the subject and browse the textbooks to see if they appeal to you.
After all the advice you have to make your own decision.
