Year 9 Options Outrage
So, it's time for the Year 9s to choose their options and the majority of my year are going crazy!
Some of the options are in the same block and people wanted to choose them. This outrage has caused problems, anger and frustration. Everybody is debating over the different subjects they'll be choosing. Someone says, "who chose that? Who chose this?" but everybody likes different things and it's their choice. Friendships have an influence on subject decisions but if your friends will not support you then you have go through on your own.
Friends should support your options and respect that everybody is different. If they want to express their fury, let them. Ultimately it's your decision.

I have just gone on the Careers Wales website and found out I can't take what I want as they are in the same columns. It is unfair as other people got what they want. I am in top set in everything and all they have in the last column is:
- BTEC Business Studies
- BTEC Music
- BTEC Public Services
- Child Development GCSE
- Science Additional GCSE
- Textiles GCSE
I don't want to do BTECs and I don't want to do Textiles or Additional Science.
In the second column is:
BTEC Ext Health and Social Care
BTEC Sport Ext Cert
Like I said I don't want to do BTECs and I don't want to do Art, Business or Spanish.
In the first column is:
Design Technology Resistant Materials
Home Economics Food & Nutrition GCSE
Information Technology GCSE
Leisure and Tourism / Geography GCSE
In this column I want to take Drama GCSE and Information Technology GCSE but I can only take one.
Some of the pupils in my class have given their opinions, the following words are from them:
"A load of s***"
"It's an absolute joke! Sort it out!"
As you can see this has annoyed many people including me. This is just a super joke. Some people are actually on about not choosing their options.
