Hello everyone and hey hey heeey, another collab?! I’ve just had a collab yesterday with my friend, Elline and guess who I’ll be collaborating with right now?
Okay, so for my post, I’ll be sharing my academic track subjects and Maggie will share her senior year school subjects. This is pretty exciting so…
First things first, I choose the track, academic. And under this track, there are three strands (atleast for our school):
First one is STEM which stands for Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics. Obviously, this strand is for the aspiring engineers, doctors, mathematician and such.
Second strand is ABM which stands for Accountancy and Business Management. This strand is for the aspiring businessmen and women, accountants and such.
Third strand is the HUMSS strand. This is my chosen strand and HUMSS stands for Humanities and Social Sciences. This is for the aspiring philosophers, policemen, lawyers and everything related to social work. Alongside HUMSS is another strand, GAS which stands for General Academic Strand. The strand is for the undecided.
As HUMSS being my chosen strand, here are the subjects that I take up:
1. Earth and Life Science
Earth and Life Science is a core subject. When we say core, all other strands must have it, too. However, STEM students take Earth Science, not including life.
2. Religious Education
This is also a core subject since we’re in a Catholic school.
3. Oral Communication in Context
Another core subject and swear this is one of the subjects that I find it really hard to answer during tests. I can understand the lessons but there are just so many terms and there are so many people that we need to take note of. I’m not the only one who finds OCC hard, tho. Haha. Any grade 11 students here who feel me?
4. Komunikasyon at Pananaliksik sa Pangwika at Kulturang Pilipino
Another core subject and in this, we study the history and culture of our own language.
5. 21st Century Literature from the Philippines and the World
Also a core subject and this is our English literature.
6. General Mathematics
Another core subject and everyone is crying because of the freakin domain and range. I hope I’ll pass this subject. *cries* I’m so bad at Math sigh.
7. Physical Education
When I was in junior high, it was always MAPEH. Music, Arts, PE and Health. But now, it’s only PE. We only meet once a week with our PE teacher and GAH I DON’T WANT TO REMEMBER HOW I FAILED IN THE PE QUARTERLY TEST. I swear everyone was shookt when we were answering our PE test. Ahhhh.
8. Empowerment Technologies
I don’t actually remember if this is a core subject or a contextualized subject. However, this is our ICT subject.
9. Introduction To World Religions and Belief Systems
This is one of my favourite subjects ever!! It’s mixture of religion, theology and philosophy. I understand things because of this subject and there was one time in class that almost all of our heads exploded because we need to prove God without our faith. I don’t remember how it really went but in the end, we proved that God exists even without our faith. This is a specialized subject for HUMSS and I just LOVE this subject.
10. Foreign Language — Italian
You guys know that I’m taking up Italian. I’ve said it in my previous posts before. Sometimes I’m so hyped to learn Italian and sometimes my head literally aches because of the topic. I hated studying preposizione (preposition). Ahhh I was just picking letters at the test! Anyone here willing to explain the Italian prepositions for me? Hahaha kidding.
And that’s probably it. I hope you liked this post and if you’re an upcoming senior high school, these are some of the subjects you might take!
And now that we’re finished.. why don’t head on to Maggie‘s blog and read her posts? I’m definitely sure you’ll love it!
Who here are Math wizards? I salute you guys! And who here are incoming senior high in the Philippines? This post might come in handy for you!
