12 Choose Courses that….. you know you can do well in. are subjects you like. reflect your interests and personal qualities. help you learn in the best way for you. help keep your options open in the future. 12

13 Don’t choose courses because… you like or dislike the teacher! your friends are choosing them. you think it’s the easy option. 13

14 Remember: If you want to specialise later check which subjects you need at GCSE. The way subjects are delivered and examined is different for GCSE’s.

16 More Advice? You are being guided through the decision making process in your Future Studies lessons. Choose a balanced selection of subjects; academic and practical. Don’t be afraid of taking a ‘fun’ subject. The choices you make do matter - 6th forms, colleges and universities are looking at which subjects you choose, not just the grades you achieve. You will be in education/training until at least the age of
