Subject Selection

Students are required to choose a minimum of three and a maximum of four subjects from one of the four catagories given below. In exceptional situations, students may be allowed to study more subjects.  We recommend that students study only three subjects at A Level as they may be unable to bear the burden of more. In certain cases, scoring 3 As could be better than scoring 3 As and a B (e.g. when a student scores a B grade in the subjects considered by IBCC and an A in a subject which is not considered by IBCC). However, students with a sound academic background and keen attitude towards studies are encouraged to take up additional subjects.

Please note that:

  • Biology and Further Mathematics cannot be chosen simultaneously.
  • To study Further Mathematics or Computer Science, it is compulsory to study Mathematics.

 

It is emphasized that the choice of subjects at O and A Level must augment the possibilities of admission in prestigious universities later on. The following guidelines shall be useful in this regard:

  • Students not studying Mathematics at A Level will find many future educational opportunities closed to them. Thus, they are strongly advised to choose Mathematics as one of their subjects.
  • A student prepared in A Level Sciences can always choose to change his future career and easily study subjects such as Economics and Management Sciences. Please remember that A Level Mathematics is a prerequisite for studying Economics after A Level.
  • Extra subjects such as Additional Mathematics or Further Mathematics contribute generously to students' knowledge but are not considered for equivalence.
  • Students seeking admission in a good foreign university in the field of Engineering or Economics are advised to study Further Mathematics. However, Further Mathematics is a difficult subject and should be selected only by those who possess a strong aptitude for Mathematics.
  • Business is credited half if studied along with Accounting or Economics, especially in the UK. However, most of the good universities in the rest of the world (including all universities in Pakistan) take Business as a full subject even with Accounting and/or Economics. The contents of these subjects significantly overlap, so we do not recommend students to study Business along with Economics and/or Accounting at A Level.
  • Students may add/drop subjects within the first month through the Add/Drop Form available with the Student Coordinator. Adding or dropping subjects later on in the programme is not encouraged.
