    Angry Subject Selection

    School has told me my timetable clashes. Originally I was doing:
    SOR2
    Eng Adv
    Maths X1
    Physics
    Economics
    Music 2

    Eco Music and Phys can't be all done at once due to timetabling so I was forced to pickup Modern History.
    One must go:
    Physics | Economics | Music 2

    Re: Subject Selection

    if you're good at music, keep that. I'd then decide between Physics and Economics.

    Both are pretty good in their own regards and with the new syllabus changes I heard Physics is really popular now.

    I personally did Economics and I'd say do it if you like essay writing and reading the financial news.

    Re: Subject Selection

    Well from those 3 subjects, definitely keep the ones that you enjoy the most.

    If you can't decide then I guess familiarise yourself with the content that will be learnt and ask yourself which one would be the most worth it in terms of enjoyment and scaling.

    If you like essay writing then do Eco but if you like calculations then do Physics.

    Also, if you love Music and are good at it, then take it.

    Good luck!

    Yeah basically what the others said, you choose the subject you love, and it seems that since you've chosen a subject like Music 2, you've got an interest in Music so it would be proper for you to keep Music.

    Keep Physics if you like Science, getting straight to the point, short answers, practicals, and with the new syllabus, a lot more mathematical concepts and it would be a refresher from Sor 2 and Economics, which are both content heavy in their own respective areas

    Keep Economics if you're interested in business, how the economy works, a lot of essay-writing, has a lot of content, but is rewarding if you do well, but then again both subjects are rewarding provided you do well.

    Basically keep the subject you think you would enjoy more, check up the syllabuses/syllabi if you need to and good luck!
