    Business, Economics, Accounts is the usual combination people take if they want to study Business. But you can mix it up by taking Sociology, or anything else you like. It's up to you, and what subjects you like studying.

    Doesn't taking business studies and economic at one time reduces it's credit. I'm thinking of taking economics only

    I've heard that, but I'm not sure if that's actually true.

    relax ... at the undergrad level you will still be doing basic courses that will help you decide what to choose
    just take BS, Accounting, Eco, Math in the A-levels ... these are the subjects that have the required credit maybe Business Studies might have a bit less (i am not sure) .. as for psychology, socio, you will still be taking these subjects at the undergrad level ... as for their applicability in real life Business Studies and Accounting will be the most useful but NOT directly applicable .... for an example of practical skills used in the work place in some areas of finance check out BIWS

    If some one who is not good at memorizing, likes studying physics and chemistry but not the organic chemistry and maths, and they have to options either Pharmacy or Radiology. What should she/he choose and why?

    Memorization will get you nowhere. It's better to attempt to try and understand the concepts.

    Let's try to evaluate your choices. What are the pro's and con's of each choice and how much money can you make from them. Which one do you find more fun/entertaining. I do not mean studying them, I am referring to preforming them.

    Good luck.

    i would suggest you to do fsc if you want to stay in Pakistan. Choose a field in which you are interested.....better if you continue with engineering

    Hi, so I'm currently doing my AS levels chem, physics, bio, math and English language. I'm planning on taking all the sciences and maths in A levels too. Upon looking at my choices, which streams and career options do you think I can pursue? I've realised that I would like to take psychology later on so I hope bio A level contributes in whatever way it can.

    Hi! With the subjects you have, there are plenty of options available to you. You can certainly opt for genetic engineering at university. You can go into academia, become a mathematician, a theoretical physicist, a biochemical engineer, a cryptographer, a data scientist, or anything really. The possibilities are endless. What subject are you most interested in right now? Have you done an internship, or taken a course outside school that will help you in making the right decision? It's never too early to think about the future, so it's good that you've started already.
