This instructable is basically about choosing "Options" in Year 9. Options are choices which a student makes in their 9th Year, to decide which subjects they, themselves actually want to learn.
I have made this instructable because, my time to choose my options is very near!!! I've just started Year 9. So i thought I might aswell give some tips to other people, who are going to choose their options.
Options are generally in U.K highschools, But this instructable can also be very helpful for "electives" which are very similar to options i believe, but are in Schools across America.
Step 1: Why Are The Options So Important?
"The Options Talk".
The Options Talk is, where most of Year 9 is gone by talking about Options. You hear it from teachers, professional career advisors, parents, and even sometimes fellow classmates and friends.
Why do they go on about it eh?
Well because it's SO DAMN important. Thats why. These Options are going to be the subjects you study for the next 2 years of high school, up untill college. This means you can pick brand new subjects which you find intresting, keep some that you enjoy, and drop the ones that
you dislike ( oh yes! ).
However, you still have to do the core subjects :
Maths, Science, English....and a recently added one R.S. :-(
So if they are that important, then you should not make any mistakes.
