Choosing A/L Subjects and career opportunities ?

priyamwatha.j . Posted in Education 1338 1 Comment

I’ve just finished my O/Ls. Is it advisable to do commerce in A/Ls? As I am very much interested in that subject, i like to study that, but others are advising me to do Bio Science. Are there enough career chances? Are there any different cources in universities for those who studied commerce in A/Ls?

One thought on “Choosing A/L Subjects and career opportunities ?”

  1. Congratulations for your success in O/L. The period of transition from O/L to A/L class is a stressful period for some student because of this ambivalence about A/L subject streams.
    I thin the decision should be based on your interest. At this moment you are not only choosing your A/L subject stream but also you are choosing your career path.
    The best Bio science students and math student end up in medical school or engineering faculty. Some others can join one of the science faculties on their A/L score. But They have very limited job opportunities and different educational opportunities if they can not make it into the university.
    Commerce students as others can enter university and may be less competitive. Otherwise they have different educational opportunities in the fields like CIMA and AAT which are very professional courses.
    Hope this advice is helpful.

Hello Adil,

I understand your concern regarding your health. Rather than getting 2nd hand information on the internet, I think you should best speak to the nephrology/renal units at various Sri Lankan hospitals and obtain the information straight from the horse’s mouth. You could try the state run National Hospital of Sri Lanka (telephone: 94-11-2691111) – where locals are treated free of charge, I don’t know how it is for foreigners. Or else there are several private hospitals such as Lanka Hospitals, Asiri, Nawaloka and Durdans. You could look up their phone numbers online and call them directly.
