Dear Student, Year 10 is a good time to start thinking about your future and those all-important career decisions you will soon have to make. Whatever the path you choose, expectation and excitement is high. In choosing subjects think about what sort of person you are. Are you the sort of person who enjoys working things out? Do you prefer written work or practical work? Do you like working with people or do you prefer to work alone? Identify what your strengths are. What subjects are you good at? Remember to make sure to choose subjects that you also enjoy – after all you will be studying them for the next two years. Next year you will be taught subjects in many different ways. This means you need to decide what style suits you best. Are you good at studying and doing exams or do you achieve best results through coursework and continuous assessment? Choose the subjects that best suit your ability, your strengths and your career aspirations. Whatever you decide, this booklet will help guide you into making the right choices. Choose wisely and good luck with your decisions. Martine Mulhern Principal
Points to Remember What do I want to do in the future? What am I good at? How do I work?

Choosing Your GCSE Subjects Choosing your GCSE subjects is an important decision. It affects the opportunities open to you after the end of Year 12 so it needs some careful thought. Here are some important factors you should bear in mind when deciding: Choose a balanced range of subjects to keep different routes open. Even if you feel you are sure about the career you are aiming for you may change your mind over the next few years so it is important to choose a range of subjects in your combination. In doing this, you will keep your future options open and enable your career to take off in any direction you choose. Check the subjects required for any career you are considering. Never guess what subject would be needed for a particular career. You should check this by using the internet and consulting your teachers/ Ms Conaty (our Careers Manager) or Careers Service NI. Develop your strengths and abilities. Although it is not a good idea to choose only those subjects you enjoy, you should think about your academic strengths and interests and take these into account. Talk to your subject teachers and parents to get their views on where your abilities lie and which areas you could develop. If you feel you need extra help and advice You can always talk to Ms Conaty, with whom you can arrange a further careers discussion.
