    I'm an Australian , living in Lebanon studying .
    I as a grade 11 student , Infact, the schools semister is almost finished.
    So what I'm trying to say that I should pick the domain I have to go through.
    I do well in math and physics my grades are high , I'm looking forward to be an engineer, but still my friends wont believe that I can make it , my teacher say yes I can but my friends have a bad past thinking of me that I failed a year its the end of the world.
    Hope some advice.
    Thanks in advance.

    What is it about these friends that makes you place value on their opinions when they tell you that you cannot do something? I suspect they are high school students like yourself and have no more understanding about the subject than you do and further they do no understand your desires, motivations and history as intimately as you do.

    This would be a situation where I would heed the advice of the teacher over that of your friends.

    As far as what to take, I would suggest spending the summer doing extra-cirricular stuff. Take up a hobbby such as astronomy, or building and racing radio-controlled vehicles that will allow you to pick up skills that would be important to an engineer.

    Thank You Choppy, your're right about my friends they dont understand the subject as I do.
    About what to take, I prefer to take lessons for next year in math and physics, what do you think.

    Thanks agains for your advice.
