You thought the toughest choice you’ve had to make is picking one gelato flavor, until you were confronted with the question of which SHS strand to follow? We did some talking with those who have firmly decided on taking up General Academic Strand and here’s what they had to say:

1. It comprises of cool subjects


Yes, you read that right. With cool subjects such as Disaster Readiness and Risk Reduction and Organization Management, you can be sure to stand out and study something unique.

 

2. You get to choose two subjects from the Humanities and Social Sciences (HUMSS) Strand.


If you would love to study subjects like Malikhaing Pagsulat, Philippine Politics and Governance or Community Engagement, Solidarity, and Citizenship, then this one’s for you.

3. Crazy combos

You can choose not one but two subjects from any other academic strand, and mix and match as you please. It’s like the times you get two scoops of ice cream when you can’t make up your mind one.

4. Unli options

Not specializing in a strand would open the doors to a world of amazing options. You could even choose to specialize once you’ve got the hang of things.

5. Students who take the GAS will not be unprepared.


Contrary to popular belief, taking the GAS will not make a student incompetent for higher education; however, it would mean that you will find it hard to get into a college course with specific requirements, one that requires subjects like accounting or science as a foundation.
So there you go. One last thing they would add is if you can’t decide which strands you might be taking, at least rule out the ones you definitely won’t be; that would help you choose your subjects. Happy decision-making!
