Year 10 into Year 11

For year 11 you need to choose a total of six subjects.

English and Mathematics are compulsory. Science is an optional subject, however, you should make sure that you will not need science in a future career pathway.  

You must choose your preferences for English and Mathematics first, then select four further subjects in order of priority

You must also choose a reserve subject in case we are not able to timetable your first three choices.

Choose subjects that give you a broad course that provides varied future pathways. It is advisable to choose your four subjects from at least three different optional curriculum areas, unless you already have a clear career pathway in mind. If in doubt, see someone in Careers for guidance.

Note: All of our courses are dependent on having enough students to run a class and having staff that can teach the subject.

Sometimes courses are over-subscribed. When that happens places may be allocated according to your order of subject choice, students’ previous courses, or by ballot. If you do not complete your selection online by the required date you might not be able to choose courses that are over-subscribed.

Next steps

Look at the menu at the left of the screen and choose Course Selection.

This will bring up some further choices.  

If you click on View Courses for Me. you will see a list of all the courses that you could choose from. 

You don't have to commit immediately to a course. We have a lot of available courses for you at MBC and you will need time to find out whether you want to study that particular course. To help. you have the option of marking a subject as a favourite.

When you click on My Favourite Courses button, the courses you selected will be there for you, making it easier for you to focus on the courses that you are most interested in.

I'm still confused...

The above information should help you to find your way round the site. At MBC you can get support from your whānau teacher. There will be special whānau sessions to show you how to find out about courses and course selection.

If you are still lost and confused, there are some videos and additional resources in the Help section on the menu. You can click here to open a separate window to access this support.
