Is Resistant material useful?

    • Thread Starter

    I have been doing RM for the last 2 years and my experience hasn't been great, due to multiple teachers bad class etc... and it's been too similar to my other subject which is graphics. When my RM teacher left my whole class was dropped. I decided to use this to try something different so I took up business. Now I am faced at a crossroad, recently I discovered I could do RM again but self learning and there is someone in my class who has chosen to do this, at first I thought it was too unknown that I wouldn't get to do the practicals which are needed in RM but according to my friend he has been doing 1 on 1 practicals with the technician. It's a shame to stop doing RM after 2 years of work and it's almost guaranteed that I will get at least an A in the subject. It is most likely I could match that in business as well with a some hard work. So back to my problem do I need RM, I'm already doing graphics would business be more useful to me? I'm trying point my future towards the design sector. After talking to the technician I remembered why I chose RM, for that creative part of me.
    So what is the best option for me continue with RM and see where it gets me, or try a different path with business studies
