    Subjects that overlap

    I signed up to do: higher level math, english, spanish, agricultural science, history, business and ordinary level irish in fifth year.

    My teacher told me I should do one more subject so I was wondering do any subjects overlap a lot with any of those? I am good at essays and learning things off but am awful at science.

      There is a slight overlap with Ag Science, Home Ec and biology. I would probably choose home ec as an extra subject as you have cookery assignments which are worth 20% of the exam done in 5th year

      I cannot do home Ec as an extra subject, I was told anyways as it must be done in a class group, don't know the proper reason, something to do the assignments

      Ag Science and geography overlap a lot, I do both and the soil and rock chapters have almost all the same info. I find geography great as I am better at learning things off by heart than trying to understand them

      is the geography course long? And how much is the project worth?

      Yeah it's pretty long but all the courses are really, it's not as long as the ag science one that much I know and the project is worth 20%

      If you're interested in current events I would pick economics as it very similar to business. Applied maths is a good subject to do outside of school as the course is very short it would definelty help you with higher level maths.
