Choosing secondary school subjects

If you're a year or two away from finishing school, we recommend keeping your subjects as broad as possible. This gives you more options as you progress with further study. Continuing with a math, english and science subject can be useful. If you are in your last year and have just realised you haven’t taken a subject you need, don't panic, talk to your careers advisor or contact our recruitment team to suss out your options.
