FAQ

Q:

Which subjects are more useful for further studies or future careers?

A:

The value of a subject indeed depends very much upon the result. A distinction renders the subject a valuable asset while a failure a definite liability. Students must be well aware of their own strengths and weaknesses before opting for a subject. It is important that they are guided by their own interest, ability and willingness to learn in a subject area.
