what to pick for year 12
« on: October 07, 2021, 09:59:58 am »
hi guys
currently iím in year 11 and iím doing english, biology 3/4, chem, psych, legal and methods.
next year i plan to do english psych legal further and right now iím contemplating if i should do chem or not
as of now i really donít like chem. i donít see myself doing well for it next year but the thing is my school doesnít offer a wide variety of subjects. in my course counselling the counsellor just told me to do chem because i get decent scores sometimes, even though i told her i donít see myself doing it well next year.   iíd be lying if i said i wasnít tempted by the scaling, since most of my subjects scale down.
but right now iím considering maybe business management. iíd like to hear some opinions on busman and whether or not i should take it

1. Which subject do you like better? Usually taking subjects you like over scaling fares better because doing subjects you hate will feel like nails on a chalkboard in Year 12.

2. What are you hoping to do after Year 12 and what course, if you plan to continue to study at Uni?
Some courses require certain VCE subjects as prerequisites, so it might be easier to stick to chem if, say, you want to study chemical engineering or medicine in Uni, which have Chem as a prerequisite.
VCE: Psych | Eng Lang | LOTE | Methods | Further | Chem                 
Uni: Bachelor of Science (Hons) - genetics
Current: working (sporadically on AN)

iíve never actually done busman 1/2. i did it in year 9 and i have a few friends who do it so iíve seen the content and it doesnít seem like iím incapable of doing it. i feel like i would prefer it over chem because iím not a stem student by any means
 i donít have a certain plan of what i want to do in uni actuallyÖ although i probably should at this stage D: but iím looking into the fields of science/psych etc
i have looked at prereqs of courses iíd consider which require sciences but not specifically only chem
