Making Choices 2
What decisions, exactly, do I have to make? Do all subjects lead to examinations? How long do I have to make up my mind? Who will help me if I get into difficulties?
What is the content of the subjects I am about to choose? Are there any new subjects available? What methods of study does each subject use? What special skills might I need to be successful? What are my strengths and weaknesses?
Which subjects do I consider most important? If my career choice changes will my subjects still suit me? How much of a balance do I get in my choice? Will my abilities and interests change as I get older?
Has everyone been consulted? Is this MY choice, or forced upon me? Am I happy with the decision? Do I have any worries?
