Hello Grade 9s, this year can feel overwhelming as you are faced with Career Choices, Subject Choices and Life Choices… but you are not alone

For a quick review of the possible Grade 10-12 subjects learners can choose from, visit Tip 5 at www.careerprep.co.za/subjects (click on each subject to expand the information). Remember that your school may not offer all of these subjects. Make sure to speak to your LO teacher or Grade 9 head for more information.
