Tips about Subject Choice


Why do we need to know about making informed subject choices in high school? Isn’t high school all about having fun before getting into university?


At Norton House, we plan ahead. We think ahead (for you!) on your university subject choice, or even your professional career in 10 years’ time. We want you to come back in 5 years’ time. Tell us how well you are doing, share with us how much you thoroughly enjoyed the syllabus you are exposed to at university, and let us know you have decided on a clear and feasible career path.


As one of you some ten years ago, we have gone through the same problem – bewilderment on future, not sure whether we’ve chosen the best for ourselves, and have kept overthinking, “What if?”. In this mini booklet, we will inform you the answers to this question. We will tell you what is important to consider; and what are the sources of the exaggerated anxiety you may have. What we cannot do, however, is to decide for yourself.


After all, it’s your own path!


In the seminar on 17th December, 2017, we will be focusing on subject choices on the main syllabuses used in Hong Kong for studies abroad, namely the Hong Kong Diploma of Secondary Education Examination (HKDSE), International Baccalaureate (IB), and International A-Levels (IAL).
