How will the choices be allocated?
Once all the choices 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
Once the option blocks have been set, it may be hard to change individual choices
so getting the choice right now is very important. We will, of course, endeavour to
make changes where we can.
