Career prospects for A/L commerce students ?

priyamwatha.j . Posted in Education 1254 1 Comment

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.

Dr Jayasinghe FUE hair clinic


In our clinic we have performed FUE hair transplants every day for the past 5 years. Anyone can visit and observe a hair transplant procedure. We have many thousands of satisfied clients.
All our clients know my number (0094) 715270381 works 9am to 9pm daily. Anyone can contact me at any time or visit the clinic to discuss any matter regarding hair transplants. We do not advertise extensively as most referrals are from clients with excellent results recommending us to their friends who have hair loss.

We are the lowest cost provider of hair transplants. We perform FUE from Rs 50,000. We do not charge large amounts because we know that even Rs 50,000 is a lot of money for most people in this country. We are aware that we are a big threat to other hair transplant companies. We also know that they use the internet to spread lies about us. If our success is a problem for other hair transplant clinics who charge many lakhs of rupees for re planting hair so be it. Everyone knows we are number one in Sri Lanka for hair transplants.

So in summary Abin or who ever you are, do not pretend to be one of our clients and spread lies about us here. If you were a real client why is it you have not given your real name or contact details. And why have you not come to see me to complain? It is because you are a complete fraud from one of our rivals afraid of competition from us as we are the lowest cost and best in the hair industry here.
