STEM or humanities pathway?
I’m an upcoming junior in high school and my counselor says that I need to start thinking of my pathway for the future. They said this because I’m dual enrolling this upcoming year and I need to chose classes that will benefit my pathway. As of right now it is engineering, which I like, however I’m not the best at math and science. All of my academic classes have been ap or honors and I try my best at math and science, they're just not my strengths. I am much better at English and history. I really do like math and science when I understand it, it just takes a while. I know engineering requires math and science so I was wondering if I should still stick with it even if I’m not the best at it. I have four Bs without the extra points and they’re all in math and science classes. Ik I still have two more years of high school so I’m not that stressed, I just want to weigh my options.
