Year 8 2023 into Year 9 2024 Subject Selection

Welcome to our Year 8 into Year 9 Subject Selection information website that will assist you in making the best subject choices.

It is very important that you take the time to research all subjects you are interested in and that you make your own choice (not necessarily the same choices as your friends).

Choose subjects that:

  • play to your strengths / abilities
  • you are interested in and will commit and work hard in
  • are helpful to your future


As part of the NSG curriculum pattern, students are also required to study 

  • TWO subjects from LIST A and 

  • ONE subject from LIST B

Please carefully consider all your choices and discuss options with your parents and teachers.
