Here Is The List Of General Arts Subjects In SHS

Certainly, High School students can study the following list of 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

Now, what are the subject combinations that you can do under general arts in SHS?

Indeed, Ghana Education Service permits SHS students to usually select only four elective subjects, in addition to 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 of them.

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

Thus, it is the reason 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

When it comes to 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.

I mean that examine yourself, and you will 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. In this way, you can then read general art subjects such as Elective Maths, Computer Science,  and  Economics. 

However, for those of you who are very good at appreciating nature and human behaviours and activities, reading subjects such as history, CRS, Geography, and 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 own life, and you will realize some of these things I’m talking about.
