At Year 13..

* You MUST choose FIVE full courses: 4 periods each per week
* You will have one option of study (4 periods per cycle)

There are no limitations on your subject choices but make sure you choose carefully. For your subject choices consider the entry requirements to University and to particular tertiary courses you have an interest in studying. Consider your subject interest and abilities and your career and life plans.

* Where a learner wishes to enter a course but does not meet the entry requirements (the prerequisites), the HoD or HoL of that subject must be approached by the learner for entry approval
* Final approval of all courses remains at the discretion of the College Principal

NB: If you would like to take two different full Technology courses highlighted 'blue' this is fine however you will need to discuss further with a Technology Teacher
