FAQ

2. What are the best subjects to take these days?


There are no "best subjects". Some people say that newer subjects, such as IT, are more useful these days when applying for jobs. However, as Key Skills are now an integral part of all subjects throughout the curriculum, everyone will gain a reasonable level of IT and other useful job-related skills.

Think about what the best subjects are for you rather than trying to follow a general trend as this could change later.

Over 90% of jobs can be accessed with the core subjects - Maths, English Language and Science plus two others. Add English Literature and make Science a Double Award and there you are!
