Course Selection Help *SEMI-GVR*
So yup, GR.9 is fast approaching and I get this stupid course selection sheet that is confusing as heck even though I got my teacher to read it over to me like 3 times, haha, she probably thinks I'm a retard now :lol
So I really don't get English 9 / 9 Adapted. She says Adapted is for people that want to go in trades, then you take Communications once you hit GR. 10, while normal English is for people that want to write essays and the heck.
Now, I want to be anything computer / IT related, but am not too sure because the choice is broad. And I have been taking becoming a chef into consideration for a really long time, but i'm not sure how expensive it is to pay for a semister of Culinary School and my mom told me it was like in the mid-thousands range and WOW...
If I were to be any of those, which English should I take? Right now, I ticked off ENG 9 Honors, and I get B's there, so I should have no problems passing the exam.
And, there are a lot of different IT jobs, like consulting, researching, what are they exactly?
Also, there is Intro Computers, Technology, Electronics and Food Studies 9. Now obviously, food studies is like cooking, but i'm not too sure the difference between Tech and Elec. Also, if I don't take Intro Computers and the rest of the courses, would they affect my chances of getting a computer related job? I already know a lot about computers, and I could probably already pass the GR.12 exam on it, so I'm not sure if selecting it would be a total waste of time.
Thanks in advance.
EDIT: I just decided that I want to like programming, networking, video game designer, etc, in the computer industry or being a chef.
Another question, hope you guys don't mind, but which school in the Lower Mainland is the best? Would it be BCIT because it's British Columbia Institute of Tech? I checked SFU and UBC, but I don't think they have any courses for the computer related ones.
