I am not familiar with JC and University requirements and wish to seek some advice on combination of subjects for secondary three.
I am toying with the idea of letting my kid pursue his interest by acceding to his request of taking three humanities subjects. (yet to check with his school).
Will this affect his subject combination in JC?
I think you need to ask your child what he likes to do in the future, before deciding what combinations to do in Sec 3.
In JC, you need to do contrast subjects. Hence your child can do Arts subjects like Econ, Lit, Hist, Geog etc, but there must be a Science subject which can be Maths.
So far, I only know of one school that offers 3 humanities subjects (Geography, Economics & Combined Humanities (SS+Hist)). However the school only offer it for one year as I don't see such combination again in the following years. Even good schools like SCGS, MGS only offer 3 Pure Sci and 2 Humanities combinations and not 3 Hum subjects.
You also need to check with the school what combinations they offer. You may not get to study what you like if there is manpower constraints in the school. Not many schools allow students to do 2 Lang, 3 Sci, 2 Maths, 2 Hum. Most neighbourhood schools only offer 2 Lang, 3 Sci, 2 Maths, 1 Hum to their top students.
