Course Programming

Selecting a program of studies is an important process that should involve students, parents, teachers, administrators and counsellors. After careful consideration, courses should be chosen based on the student’s strengths, interests and future requirements. Students are asked to list alternative choices on
their course selection sheets, as their preferred choices may not schedule due to timetable constraints. Courses with low enrolment may not be offered. Students are advised to read this guidebook carefully when planning their courses for next year.
