I need to choose subjects for Year 11 and I'm panicking because I don't know what to choose!
I have a few combinations but I'm planning on doing these subjects for HSC:
- Math 4u
- English Advanced
- Music Extension
- Latin Extension

I've always been told that < subjects are better, so this is what I've got. Is it a good combination though? I'm not sure how hard Latin is going to get...
Let me know!

Does your school have a unit limit for year 11?

If you're hesitant about Latin, I'd honestly recommend Italian/French Beginners if you are passionate about languages, and would prefer a subject that isn't overly difficult yet has decent scaling. I feel that your combo is pretty good because it doesn't have too many heavy theory subjects such as physics or the HSIE subjects, but it's ultimately up to you. As AKONS said, prioritise the subjects that you really love and the ones that you think you'll do well in.

In regards to 4u maths, have fun lol

Have u already been studying latin and got good results? If not you prob shouldn't do extension or maybe latin at all. It's pretty risky to choose a language you aren't already good at especially if you're doing distance ed since it's not the best way to learn. Also idk about music extension, I'm personally against doing weird subjects and would rather do stuff that a lot of other people do/have done for the resources and also the content will prob be better and have a better syllabus. An example of this is bio vs eco (although a lot of ppl do bio) bio has a very broad syllabus that is hard to study with while eco is a harder subject but has a better syllabus in my opinion where it is very clear to see what you need to know for the HSC/tests.

Latin will be very hard. It is the highest scaling language, and scales nearly as well as 4u maths (i believe, according to the hsc scaling document). That's a lot of extensions, good luck! As long as you like them, go for it.
I know!! It's so riskyyyy. I've been doing Music since I was really young so I'm confident in it so I really only have to focus on English, Math and Latin
