The question of optional or mandatory subjects has been discussed for a long time. Some people say that school subjects have to be optional for high school students, whereas others do not agree. They think all subjects must be mandatory.

In my opinion students at the final grades ought to study the subjects they consider most useful.First of all, students usually know what they want to be even in Primary School and should learn the subjects accordingly. For example, the subjects that are connected to their future specialty should be given special emphasis. Secondly, if a person chooses the subject, he or she will study it betterFor instance, it is a scientific fact that anything that is studied with pleasure leaves stronger impressions in memory. The efficiency of such studying is much higher than if a person is forced to study something they do not like.

At the same time, there are people who claim that all subjects have to be mandatory. They believe they that in order to be a versatile one must know all school program subjects.

I do not agree with the statement above. If a person does not want to be a mathematician, he or she does not have to spend a lot of time learning math. It is better to focus on something more practical and useful for their future life. Versatile does not mean that students must know all the subjects, but rather to be a specialist in subjects they love.

In conclusion, I would like to say there are opposing view points on this issue. At first sight all school subjects are important and have to be mandatory, but in actual fact it is much more practical to study only those ones that students like. Thus, I strongly believe that high school students should study only the subjects they choose.
