While most students entering Year 11 do not have definite occupational goals, they should at least have clear ideas of their abilities and interests and realistic ambitions. The senior years can be a rewarding and useful experience if the student has a determined attitude to study and attainable goals and alternatives. It is important to enter Year 11 with an appropriate subject choice, a positive study plan and with sound advice. While the work in Years 11 will be more difficult, the rewards for consistent, regular study should be adequate compensation.
