4 Factors to be Considered When Choosing Courses for Gr. 12 Requirements for earning the OSSD Requirements for earning the OSSD Requirements for post-secondary programs Requirements for post-secondary programs Choosing the appropriate courses Choosing the appropriate courses Math/Science issues Math/Science issues

5 Requirements for the OSSD Compulsory credits (total of 18) 4 credits in English ( 1 credit per grade) 4 credits in English ( 1 credit per grade) 1 credit in French as a second language 1 credit in French as a second language 3 credits in mathematics ( at least 1 credit in grade 11 or 12) 3 credits in mathematics ( at least 1 credit in grade 11 or 12) 2 credits in science 2 credits in science 1 credit in Canadian history 1 credit in Canadian history 1 credit in Canadian geography 1 credit in Canadian geography 1 credit in the arts (music, art, dance or drama) 1 credit in the arts (music, art, dance or drama) 1 credit in health and physical education 1 credit in health and physical education ½ credit in civics and ½ credit in career studies ½ credit in civics and ½ credit in career studies

6 Diploma Requirements (Cont..) 1 credit in English, or a third language, or French, or a Native Language, or a senior Social science/humanities, or Canadian and World studies, or Guidance & Career Education (NOT GLC 2O), or CO-OP 1 credit in English, or a third language, or French, or a Native Language, or a senior Social science/humanities, or Canadian and World studies, or Guidance & Career Education (NOT GLC 2O), or CO-OP 1 additional credit in Health and Physical education, or Business studies, or an additional credit in the Arts (music, visual arts, dance or drama), or French or CO-OP 1 additional credit in Health and Physical education, or Business studies, or an additional credit in the Arts (music, visual arts, dance or drama), or French or CO-OP 1 additional credit in Science (grade 11 or 12) or Technological education (grades 9-12), or French, or Computer Studies or CO-OP 1 additional credit in Science (grade 11 or 12) or Technological education (grades 9-12), or French, or Computer Studies or CO-OP Religion credits: 4 Optional/elective credits (total of 8): Courses of the student’s choice, selected from the full list of courses available in the school Courses of the student’s choice, selected from the full list of courses available in the school

7 Requirements for Post-Secondary Options a. College  OSSD with grade 12 English b. Apprenticeships  Many now require OSSD c. University  Minimum 6 4U/4M courses

8 Choosing the Appropriate Course Type Things to consider… a. Degree program?  University program or College degree b. Keeping options open  Be realistic c. University admission  Consider minimum averages required d. ‘M’ courses  University/college preparation

9 Choosing the Appropriate Courses Things to Consider… a. OSSD Requirements b. Strengths/Weaknesses of the student c. Post-secondary destinations/requirements   d. Keeping options open

10 Math/Science Issues Choosing math and science courses in grade 12 is the most effective way of keeping the maximum number of options available after high school. However,… Choosing math and science courses in grade 12 is the most effective way of keeping the maximum number of options available after high school. However,… A student must also consider his/her strengths and weaknesses when choosing math/science courses at this level A student must also consider his/her strengths and weaknesses when choosing math/science courses at this level May have the reverse effect!
