How will the choices be allocated?
Once all the option forms have been received, students will be allocated to subjects
within an option block that is created to ensure that as many choices are fulfilled as
possible. Each year however, the combination of subjects chosen does mean that a few
students cannot do their preferred choices which is why we ask them to choose 2 reserve
subjects. There are instances where a course may not run if insufficient students opt to
take it at GCSE
but this is not a common occurrence.
Once the option blocks have been set, it may be hard to change individual choices so
getting the choice right now is very important.
