What subjects did you take in school and how have these influenced your career path?
At the beginning of 5th year I wasn't 100% sure if I wanted to study a science or business degree program at college. So I chose a broad selection of subjects i.e. Physics, French, Business and Classical Studies (i.e. Ancient Greek and Roman Civilisation). I studied French as many universities demand that CAO applicants have studied a foreign language.
Apart from my initial interest of "how things work", I felt like I had to study Physics as many degree programs request all applicants to have at least one science subject. Classical studies was a favorite subject and it involved a lot of independent research as answers often lied outside the standard text. These research skills really stood to me when I entered third level education and then the workplace.
