Play to Your Strengths and Interests:

Choose courses that align with your strengths and interests. While considering future career prospects is important, prioritise selecting subjects that you enjoy and excel in. This not only enhances your academic experience but also keeps you motivated throughout the course.

Commit Time and Effort:

Planning for Preliminary and HSC requires dedication and thoroughness. Avoid taking shortcuts or rushing through the decision-making process. Invest time and effort into researching, analysing, and evaluating your options to make well-informed choices.

If you have aspirations for higher education, it’s crucial to understand the prerequisite courses required by universities for your desired fields of study. Seek information from universities or relevant sources to ensure that your chosen subjects align with these requirements.

Keep Options Open:

While it’s essential to have a plan in mind, it’s equally important to remain flexible. Keep your options open and be receptive to new opportunities or changes in your interests and aspirations. Your career path may evolve over time, so selecting a diverse range of subjects can provide you with flexibility and adaptability.
