Guided Choices STAGE 3 (3...2...1...lift-off!)

Making Your Choices

Using all of the information you have gathered and the questions you have asked, you will be in a good position to make your 3 choices AND 2 reserve choices. This will be done online using SIMS OPTIONS.

An email with further details on how to sign up will be sent to you and your parents on Friday 19th March. Your parents will also need to sign up, so that they can check the choices you have made.

 

 Final Deadline

Deadline for completed choices: Friday 26th March. Remember, if you want to give yourself the best chance of getting your top choices, meet this deadline!

Further Help

If you have any queries about using SIMS OPTIONS, or if you do not receive your email on the 19th March, please contact Mrs Skeer in the Data & Exams office.
