This is the first decision that may affect your future, so think about:
- subjects you enjoy
- new subjects
- courses you do well in
- subjects to help you achieve your future career plans
- courses that let you learn in a way that suits you.
Having a good spread of subjects and the best grades you can achieve will increase your career choices at 16.
