Grade 10 Courses

GRADES 10 COURSE CONSIDERATIONS

Grade 10 Program

  • Students must select 9 courses for a complete program. Religious Studies, English, Mathematics, Science, History or History in French, and Civics/Career Studies must be in the timetable.  Two electives are also to be selected.

 

  • Choose the most appropriate course type for you:

 

                  Academic - 5th digit in the code is “D” - emphasis will be on theory and abstract thinking - ENG 2DC

                        Applied - 5th digit in the code is “P” - Focus will be on practical applications - MFM 2PC

                        Open - 5th digit in the code is “O” - In disciplines like the Arts, Business Studies, Physical and Health                                           Education Religion, etc. all students will take the same type of course - PPL 20X

                        Locally Developed - 5th digit in the code is “L”- for a student who has struggled in a subject and intends                                           to enter the workplace after secondary school - MAT 1LC

 

  • Your grade 10 course type should be the same as your grade 9 course type in a subject (e.g. ENG 1DC leads to ENG 2DC). However, if you had difficulties in grade 9, in a particular subject, you may consider a switch in grade 10, but you are encouraged to consider summer school to prepare for that switch. If you failed a grade 9 compulsory course, you must take it at summer school or repeat the grade 9 course while in grade 10. Summer school is recommended so your graduation will not be delayed.

 

  • Students planning for university or university/college programs should have, in grade 10, mainly academic course types.

 

  • Students planning for college, apprenticeship or the workplace should have, in grade 10, mainly applied and open courses.

 

  • Students experiencing difficulty in the regular program, who plan to enter the workplace, should consider the locally developed courses in Mathematics, English and Science.

 

  • Make informed decisions.  Consult with your teachers, teacher-adviser, parents and teacher-counsellor.

 

The Coding System

The Ministry of Education has produced course codes which are used in all schools in Ontario.  You are encouraged to familiarize yourself with these codes and to use them at all times. These “Common Course Codes” will appear on your Ontario Student Transcript.

The code consists of 6 digits. The first three digits are a short form for the subject, e.g. ENGLISH becomes ENG.  The fourth digit indicates the grade [1-(9), 2-(10), 3-(11), 4-(12)]. The fifth digit indicates the type of course (D=Academic, P=Applied, O=Open, L= Locally Developed). The sixth digit is an extra identifier for individual school or board use.
