The career you want to pursue will also guide you on the subjects that are relevant to the job you want to have in future.

All subjects are important even there some few you chose which are not relevant to the future you want to have and in fact that doesn’t matter what matters you are enjoying what you are learning and following your career path .Motivation plays a key role in your success as a student.
Choose subjects that offer a (reasonable) challenge.
If subjects are too easy for you, you will easily get bored and will lack motivation. If they are too hard, you will get frustrated and likely not understand the material well enough to succeed. Take subjects that offer you a challenge you are willing to take.
- Look at how well you’ve done in past classes to help determine what level you are at. If you were struggling at math last year, for example, you probably shouldn’t be taking the advanced math course. If you were excelling in math, however, the advanced math course may be a good choice. Biting off more than you can chew or taking the easy road does not make you look cool; be honest with yourself when judging your abilities and picking subjects.
Choose subjects that you are required to take.
When choosing subjects don’t be too excited up to an extent you forget the ones your are supposed to take! Select the required first so that you can know the choices remaining for you to make
You should do a list of all the subjects you want to do and narrow it down
If you want to choose let’s say seven subjects, make sure you include a backup on the list. Remember you won’t be able to take all the subjects you want to take ; you should accept that before doing the list
If you realize you have many subjects on your list than the required number then you should cut the ones you will least enjoy then you keep narrowing the list down until you get the enough subjects.
Consult your parents.
Ensure to seek advice when making subject selection you can consult your parents even expertise like your teachers
Although you should make the final decision but it’s good for you to get an approval from your parents on the selected subjects
If they question any of the subject you’d like to take, calmly discuss the matter. Screaming and yelling at each other won’t help you keep your subjects
Your parents can help point out any subjects they think you’d like or that they think you should take. Maybe a subject you thought looked lame could turn out to be fun.
