I want to stay back for an additional year of high school, most people I talk to are against it.
I can take foods courses and learn how to cook. (small reason of the bunch, krishna, but would like to learn how to cook)
I can take econ, poli sci, history courses and boost up my average.
If I get a 70% in advanced functions, I can come back and do data management (required for honours econ) and get into honours economics at my chosen school as opposed to getting into applied economics with a 60% in functions and no data as it is not required.
I can play hockey an additional year (won't be practical in uni)
I will likely get a better scholarship (will help pay for residence first year as I don't need to pay tuiton)
I think it is a good idea
If you're smart enough to figure all of this out, you should already also have figured out that this was a stupid idea to begin with.
What's the real reason you want to stay in high school?
Anyone who advises you to move to Fort McMurray should be disregarded.
Where did I say move? Camp work. I made $3300 clear in less than two weeks in camp. I'm a first year electrician. I spent a total of $27 during that time span, and that was when my crew went into town for some drinks.
He will never make that kind of money in the career he says he plans to pursue. Frankly, in Canada, education is an absolute waste of time and money. Go to work in McMurray straight out of high school, and you can be retired with an $8,000-$10,000/month pension by the age of 45.
Just wish I had gone into the trades straight out of school instead of wasting 4 years trying to earn money to go to university.
If you want to learn to cook you're just going to waste a lot of time and money doing it in school. It's one of those professions I believe it's better to learn on the job, IMO.
This. If you want to be a chef, school in the general sense is kind of pointless. It'll help if you ever want to do anything AFTER being a chef, but if you feel comfortable with cooking for a living, staying in school longer than required seems like a hinderance.
