Year 9 GCSE Options

Your ‘First Step: It is said that a journey begins with a single step, for you, choosing your options is that ‘first step’. The choices that you take over the next few weeks will lay the foundation for the rest of your future, it is therefore, important that you make the correct choices. Your options must be those which will benefit you, so don’t chose options because your friends have chosen them. Think about your plans for Post 16, University or Apprenticeship and ultimately employment.

How to choose: How do you know that you have chosen the correct options? One way would to decide on what careers you are interested in and then work backwards through University/Apprenticeship requirements, then Post 16 options and finally Year 9 options.
