You’ll feel better, more purposeful and in control of your own destiny
If you enjoy doing something, you will ultimately do it well. Pick subjects that you have liked, enjoyed and shown an enthusiasm for. So often you can pick a subject because of the teacher, maybe you like them or hear they are good, but it might not be the subject you would enjoy the most. Although a teacher or parent’s input is very important, you are going to be the one who has to do the subject. So make sure you are interested in learning that subject. It makes your chances of success far greater.
Sometimes the easy choices are not the right ones. If you have an interest in a career or course area which involves a particular subject you consider challenging, be brave and take it now. A lot of students make the mistake of choosing just one science subject. If you like science, be smart, keep your options open and take a second one. This doesn’t mean that you are choosing a science based career at this stage, but you will be better prepared to make that decision if you eventually do. For example, it would be advisable to take Maths & Physics for engineering but it’s essential to have Honours Chemistry for Nutrition & Dietetics. Be brave now. Read the rest of this entry »
It’s your choice – You live & work with your decisions.
Be consistent – if you want something be it Engineering, IT, Arts, etc then put all available courses in your preferred order. Don’t hop from one type to something different as it suggests you’re not sure what you’re letting yourself in for.
Put down your 1st preference – then pick alternative routes to the same end goal, eg if you want Medicine but don’t get it then a good alternative might be BioMedical/Medical/MedLab Science or, Physiology/Anatomy/Biochemistry taken in a broad omnibus Science degree or, a Health Science course. The same goes for other popular courses.
Do check that you meet any special requirements – such as a specific minimum grade in a particular subject. There’s no point in selecting a course that you’re not eligible for.
Do a final check to for new courses in your preferred area – the CAO/UCAS/EUNiCAS post all additions & amendments on their websites.
Remember, decision making is a mix of Information & Emotion.
It’s your choice.
