Year 9 Option Choices


Introduction to Option Choices

The year 9 option process helps the transition from Key Stage 3 (years 7-9) to Key Stage 4 (years 10- 11). Year 9 students are offered a range of subjects to choose from to study in year 10 and 11.

The following are the criterias students need to follow when choosing their subjects:

  • All students will choose 8 subjects which will include Mathematics and English
  • All Kuwaiti students will be required to choose Arabic Ministry as one of their 8 subjects
  • All Muslim students will take Islamic Studies & Quran. This is not part of their 8 subject choices
  • The school may place restrictions on choices if it feels the choice is unrealistic. Look at the information on the University entrance requirements section for further information.
