Once you have made your selections:
Initially, your selections will be used to build the school timetable for 2022. Once option selections have been completed and the timetable is complete you will be able to see your timetable and if necessary make some adjustments or confirm your course.
Sometimes you may be required to select a further course or we will have used a backup course. This happens for two reasons. The first is that the courses do not run as there are not enough students selecting the course. The second reason being that two of your subjects end up clashing as they are in the same line. You will get the opportunity to check and confirm your selections before the start of the 2022 year.
