Choosingsubjects at school is important for the rest of your life.

What must one think of when choosing school subjects?

The most important things are your abilities and interests. There is no sense in selecting subjects only because you think you will find a job with them.

It is also important to start thinking about the broad career direction you want to take and select subjects that will support you when you go on to tertiary studies or further training. For example, if you are interested in a career in the tourism industry, subjects such as an additional language, geography, history, travel and tourism, and computer practice may be very useful.

It is necessary to read more about your chosen career to get an idea of the different options, because this will help you to see what subjects could be beneficial.

Another aspect to consider is the needs of our country. There is, for example, a huge demand for people with mathematics and science skills, and if you are gifted in these subjects, it is well worth taking them.
