Choosing Your Standard Grades

You might be one of these people with a clear picture of your future and what you want do. But, the fact is, at Standard Grades stage the vast majority of pupils don’t have a fixed plan.  Even those who have set their sights on a specific career early on quite often change their mind later.

You have another three or four years before you leave school, so it’s a good idea to keep your options open. Choose a group of subjects that allow you to be flexible, then you can specialise at Higher Grade in the areas that best fit the course you want to take at Caledonian. The number of Standard Grade subjects you can take differs from school to school, so it’s best to check with your Guidance Teacher.
