I've chosen my courses for grade eleven, but I'm still not entirely sure about it. These are already set in stone: English, French, Biology, Functions, World History to the 16th Century, Intro to Antho/Psych/Socio, and Understanding Canadian Law. My last chosen course is Chemistry, but I'm debating whether or not to take that out and instead choose World History Since 1900: Global and Regional Perspectives. World History since 1900 is an open course though, so I'm not sure how beneficial that would be. I'm planning on studying English/writing at university so I will focus on the humanities in high school.

Any advice?

If you're not going to go into science, I highly, HIGHLY recommend that you do NOT take chemistry. Or any sciences in general. Gr 11 Bio was okay though (it was more social science-y than any of the other science courses, in my opinion), if you really wanted to take it.

I knew that I wanted to go into social sciences/humanities but I made the mistake of taking chem and bio to "keep my options open" but that was a MISTAKE. If you don't need it and you don't LOVE the subject, then don't take it.

I did all 6 senior level sciences but only because I knew that I wanted to go into sciences.
But I have friends who took grade 11 sciences and had a HORRIBLE time because they had no interest in it and ended up coming out with like.. 60-70s.
So if you have absolute NO interest in Chemistry, don't take it.
