Certainly, High School students can certainly study the following subjects in school.


  • Christian Religious Studies – CRS
  • Elective Mathematics – E-Maths
  • Geography – Geog
  • Literature in English – Lit
  • Economics – Econs
  • Twi – Either Asante Twi or Akuapim Twi
  • Fante
  • French
  • Government
  • History
  • Elective Physics
  • Elective ICT


Course Combinations – Art Subjects In SHS

What are the subject combinations you can do under general arts in SHS?

Indeed, Ghana Education Service permits SHS students to usually select only four elective subjects besides the four core subjects.

For this reason, you can not read all the elective subjects in General art above; in this regard, you can select only four.

Furthermore, there are some subjects that you cannot combine with other subjects. Those subjects can conflict during the Wassce examination period if you do that.

Thus, it is why is here to guide you in your course selection at SHS – Senior High School.

Now, what are the subjects you cannot combine to study at SHS? Please find them right below.


Subject You Cannot Combine At SHS – Senior High Schools.

Senior High School Students cannot combine and study the following subjects in SHS:


  • You cannot read Twi, Fante, and French at the same time
  • Also, you cannot read Financial Account, Literature in English, and Elective Physics simultaneously.
  • Again, you cannot read Management in Living, Business Management, and Physics simultaneously.


Which Course Is Best For Arts Students At High School

Regarding which courses are best for art students at the SHS level, I will say that it depends on your capabilities, interest, and aspirations in life.

For this reason, I will advise you to observe well and find out your areas of strength at the Junior High school level or primary level.

You will examine yourself and realize the subjects you had high interest in. Also, you will find out that it was easy for you to excel in those subject areas with a very minimum effort. 

Thus, I will advise you to select an arithmetic course if your mathematics background and success at JHS are strong. This way, you can read general art subjects such as Elective Maths, Computer Science,  and  Economics. 

However, for those who are very good at appreciating nature and human behaviours and activities, reading subjects such as history, CRS, Geography, and the government will help your future.

Also, I recommend reading subjects such as Literature, Fante, Twi, French, and other languages for fluent and good speakers.

Sincerely, reflect on your life, and you will realize some of these things I’m talking about.
