Is a 40 study score good?
This raw study score will be a number between 0 and 50. A raw study score of 40 would mean that you performed better than around 91% of all students who took the same subject. A raw study score of 50 means that you performed in the top 0.3% of students enrolled in the subject.
The subjects you choose in Year 10 affect what you can do in the future. You should go for a good balance of subjects to keep your career options open. Choosing subjects that suit you and your abilities is very important.
Consider what sort of person you are
To help you decide what to study in Yr 7- Yr 10 Subjects, it's a good idea to start asking yourself what sort of person you are:
think about what you're like at home, as well as in school - what skills you've developed outside school
ask yourself what types of things you enjoy doing the most - for example, working things out and thinking them through, practical activities or artistic options like painting, drawing or performing music
think about what you are most interested in: it could be languages, writing projects, helping people, being outdoors or designing things
What you want to do
If you have a particular career in mind, or you are hoping to go to university, then it is worth finding out if there are specific subjects you need to study.
Before choosing your GCSE subjects you should be aware of choosing subjects which may affect your choices at a later stage, for example, double award science is essential for careers related to medicine but it will also give you many other options.
You'll have many options in Year 10, but there are some subjects so important that everyone has to take them. English and Maths are the subjects most often required for courses and careers. Doing as well as you possibly can in Maths and English will improve your chances of getting a job or course at a later stage.
For subjects you can choose you should:
make sure that you have accurate and up-to-date information
talk to those who can give you good reliable advice such as your careers teacher/adviser
discuss the options with your family and subject teachers
There are a number of factors you should consider when you make your subject choices.
Choosing the subjects you need
If you know what career you want, choosing the right subjects can be critical. For example, if you are considering following a science pathway you will need at least double award science.
