23.1. In the second cycle of secondary school, students shall choose, each year, the general education path or applied general education path.
For those paths, the suggested number of hours per year for each subject and the number of credits for each are as follows:
The Secondary IV compulsory subject Ethics and religious culture may, subject to section 26, be taught to Secondary III students and, if applicable, the credits assigned for that subject may be given to those students.
In addition to the elective subjects that schools choose among those on the list drawn up by the Minister, the schools must offer students in the applied general education path the elective subjects specific to that path if those subjects are on the list.
Schools may use the time allotted for the elective subjects for remedial purposes to extend the time allotted for the compulsory subjects or to implement student services programs. No credits are given in those cases. Schools may also offer as elective subjects local programs of studies for which credits are given.
