How did subject choices affect your life skills?

Hello and thankyou for taking the time to look at this survey. We (Will and Nick) are Education students at the University of Sydney studying social perspectives on education. We are conducting a survey on people who have completed the HSC from 1989 onwards to find how subject choice has effected their post school choices, and as a result, life skills. This survey is written to take a broad picture of what people have done post school and what their main influences have been with regard to ultimate life choices. On completion of the report, a finished copy will be displayed on this page for your pleasure. This should be around the 17th October. Feel free to forward any comments, queries, problems to either one of us:
