Choosing subjects and courses

Choosing subjects and courses

What effect the courses and subjects I study in years 10 and 11 have on my choice of career?

Your choice of GCSE subjects will have some effect on what you can do in the future.  However choosing subjects that suit you and your abilities is most important.  If you have a career in mind you need to check out what subjects you might need. You can do that by looking up a career on our site.
If you do not have a career in mind – that’s fine.  Your school must offer you a broad and balanced choice so if you have the opportunity to choose between subjects go for a good balance.  This will keep your career options open later on.
This site also has a wide range of leaflets on topics such as Careers with Maths, Art and Design after year 9.  You can find these here. They are well worth checking out. For more information
