Career prospects for A/L commerce students ?

I’ve just finished my O/Ls and decided to do A/Ls. I got 5As, 3Bs and an S. Is it advisable to do Commerce in A/Ls. Because I am very much interested in that subject, but most of the others are advising me to do Bio science or Maths. Are there enough careers if I do commerce?

One thought on “Career prospects for A/L commerce students ?”

  1. From my experience I think you will do better in commerce subjects. Every one of us are born with some potential and we should try to achieve the best possible. I see you as a student with good English knowledge and above average intelligence. My gut feeling is that the best stream for you would be commerce.
    As we do not have career counselors in school, your option would be to discuss this matter with one of your school teachers. They have seen enough student and how they advance in life.
    Parents and relatives advise on career but those advises are not very much factual and realistic. But every student has different potentials and making the right decision at right time will help you to achieve your best.
    One important thing is the subjects you like. Always choose the subject of your interest. I have seen many students who go to both bio science classes and commerce subjects classes initially and decide on which stream to choose.
    In Sri lanka currently only 2% get a chance to enter university. I think your O/L performance stand just above the average student level. But your English knowledge is an advantage along with the IT knowledge as many of the Sri Lankan student lack knowledge in these fields. So If you fail to enter university, I see many opportunities for you as as a commerce student. Business administration, Accounting (AAT), CIMA are few of the course to name which has good career opportunities.

Hi… I would highly recommend a psychotherapist in Ninewells hospital. She is very good. All my pain and anxiety washed way after I see her. She is Australian qualified and understood my issues very well. Now I’m living my life happily.
