When it is time to choose Secondary 5 options, many questions arise: which courses open all the doors in cégep? Do the options offered by the school other than sciences permit entry into college? Are sciences crucial?
Many parents, and incidentally their children, think that science must be chosen at all costs, even if the child has no interest in the subject, with the goal of preventing a door from closing. When the student enjoys science and performs well, that makes sense. However, for a fair amount of young people it is not that simple. Some prefer languages, arts or sports, and may experience significant difficulties with science.
