  Students should decide subjects at school
Updated 30 January 2002, 09.14

Sarah wants the rules to change so she can study the subjects she's interested in.

"This year I have SATs exams and I choose my options for GCSE* subjects in the following years.

I think schools are too controlling, they restrict your future options leaving you with only two subjects you really want to do.

School student studying
You must take maths, English, science, religious studies, physical education and a modern language.

Then you must take design technology, textiles, food, construction, graphics and either history or geography.

Pointless subjects

The government is strict on the rules they give schools and this leaves us students with nothing to enjoy.

How can I get the career I want if all the subjects are taken away?

Why do we have to study things we will never use the rest of our lives?

I think it's time these things should change - or the next few years will be tough ones!"

Sarah, 14, Somerset
