How Do I Decide Which Level of Course Is Right for Me?
In grades 9 and 10, students will have the option of choosing Academic, Applied and, at some schools, Essential Level Courses. The chart below outlines some of the key differences between them to help you determine which is the best fit for you.
Note: You are not required to take ALL of your courses at the same level. Students are encouraged to select the most appropriate level for each course. There are options for moving from one level to another from year to year as well. See your guidance counsellor if you have questions about course level selection.
