Hi ameelia and everyone else who asked this super popular question!
I think subject choices might have changed since I was at school but I did (in order of preference…)
Some of these were chosen because they were required for the course I wanted to get into at uni.
I think that if you want to get into a B.Sc course at Uni you will want to study Maths, Physics and Chemistry. I only did 2-unit Mathis, so had to attend summer school before they’d let me enrol in 1st year Maths at Uni.
It’s worth checking with your preferred Uni what subjects are mandatory for certain 1st year subjects.
Different universities will have different requirements, and of course school subjects vary from state to state (what’s 2-unit Maths, David?) — so check very carefully!
My school certificate subjects were
– English (compulsory — and far too much weird post-modern literature for me)
– French (not that I have any gift for languages, unfortunately)
– Maths (3 different subjects differing in how fun or painful they were)
– Chemistry (loved it)
– Physics (boring, but I didn’t let that stop me studying physics at university!)
It depends exactly what you want to study at Uni, and which Uni you want to go to. I did the IB (international baccalaureate) and did:
– so quite a variety 🙂 like the others have said, different courses have different pre-requisites, so it’s important to check this out before you make your final subject choices for year 12 if you have a particular course in mind.
If there is a subject that isnt necessarily a prerequisite, but which you really enjoy and you can fit it in, like art or music or a language then I’d recommend choosing that too – study always seems less like hard work if you are doing something you really like 🙂
