What subjects should I choose?

May 22, 2014

Subject selection is a big issue for year 10 students and their parents.  

 

There are so many questions to consider. What am I good at? What do I want to do after year 12? What subjects can I choose at my school?

 

The first two are the really curly questions. How can a 15-year-old successfully match subject selection with post-secondary pathways?

 

There is a valuable assessment tool that can help join the dots between study and potential career direction. It’s called the Morrisby Report.

 

The Morrisby Report doesn’t test your knowledge, so much as your potential. It’s a questionnaire and test format, completed over 3 ½ hours, that helps to work out your personal strengths and abilities.

 

As any career counsellor will advise, students should concentrate on what they’re good at. What are their interests? What do they enjoy?

 

Enjoyment is so important. Enjoyment is where skill tends to lie. It’s largely skills and preferences that the Morrisby Report focuses on when determining a potential future career.

 

The Morrisby Report brings together skills, ability and temperament. Bingo! Twelve potential career suggestions are the output.

 

With the guidance of a career counsellor, these potential career options are important pointers for year 11 and 12 subject selection. And ultimately, this detailed assessment will inform post-secondary course choices.

 

But don’t think for a second that the Morrisby Report is just for students. It can help adults find the training to enable a career change too.

 

Young and old can benefit from the Morrisby Report assessment tool. And Careermove can facilitate the assessment and help you make the most from the report’s recommendations.
