Confused? – Easy guide to choose subjects in O-level?

No comments
It’s okay to be confused.

Well, I wish it could be answered! The deciding factor in subject selection will be your career counselling and the fields.

What is the point of taking sciences if you finally take accounting as your profession or being a mechanical engineer looking back to your choices. Biology! Really?

This misconception is must be corrected that one who is not dazzling in studies chooses commerce and the one who is genius selects sciences, preferably “biology”. We all been through this at least once. 

Today let’s talk take an insight of my career journey. In 9th I chose Biology as my major working towards aeronautical engineering, with determination I applied for the engineering university, after a tough competition I passed my aptitude but was rejected on medical grounds; I was colour blind. Finally pursued Chartered Accountancy! Well, if I was career counselled at the very beginning of my higher studies and the medical abnormalities were normal and known to me, I would have paved my path towards my accountancy career.

Break-Down of Ordinary Level’s Subject. (Pakistan) Administrative Zone 4

The Cambridge O Level program is a three years certification, in which student has to pass Five compulsory subjects to pass the exams but three optional subjects are must for admission in the local university; theoretically, any three subjects can be chosen. However, most schools have set subjects into groups and the student is mandated to choose any of the group.

There are Five Compulsory and Three optional Subjects.

The Phenomena of Karachi’s Education

1 comment

Karachi is the world’s 7th largest city is impaired by a good educational institution!

At now in 2020 there are 6 educational boards, conducting examinations in Karachi. Namely,

Cambridge-British Council

  1. (CAIE) Cambridge Assessment International Education.

United States of America, Switzerland.

Pakistan

Board of Education Sindh

Pakistan

As everyone agrees, education is a crucial aspect of one’s life, however, few know the true meaning of education; it is to prepare one for the challenges in an adult’s life. School fails all but a tiny portion of the students! Schools are segregated mainly into two parts, highly academic private schools or deprived government schools where human ingenuity, energy, goodwill, and talent all get lost on an industrial scale. We are so much normalized to it that every one of us has either gave up on one’s dream or killed someone else’s. Just open the curriculum of your sixth or eighth-grader, where is marketing, ethics, competition, leadership, and management? Should not everyone educate themselves with it? Tutors are stress and burden for the students. If a tutor is ill-prepared himself, he will teach the same to his pupil.

The problem lies in the national curriculum; we are too used to the normal syllabus. The personality development is lacking in 90% of the graduates, soft skills do nothing in your resume, education has become an industry to mass-produce Mizaru, Kikazaru, and Iwazaru.

CAIE and IB in Karachi is a bright step in educational development, their curriculum is updated but little they impact on personality development. Examination criteria of CAIE embark the ambitious students by awarding marks on what one knows than how much one writes. IB excels in educational development by their project-based learning rather than exam based. However, firstly these boards are not available to Karachi’s majority because of the financial reasons, and secondly, less desirable by the middle class as these boards are not honored and recognized by the universities in Karachi.

BSEK and BIEK, if I should phrase it in such words that these boards and their execution are an utter joke in the 21st century and the developed era we are in, is not disrespectful. From their curriculum to their execution, the condition of government schools or lack of their operation is evident proof of the seriousness of The Government of Sindh.

Execution of Online Classes by the government is still pending in September when schools are about to reopen, which was planned to air during the coronavirus pandemic.

The literacy rate of Karachi or Pakistan is not very high, still, half of the population i.e. females of the nation either face objectivism or gender discrimination. I often get a request from parents to provide them with female tutors at their homes, when they don’t allow their female children to travel, heed, or explore the field and profession they want to enjoy!

AKU-EB and ZUEB is a step in the right direction to examine secondary and intermediate candidates, but when the problem lies in the curriculum, the examination is only a small step to right the system.

Our educational system needs to be revamped, the obsolete course needs to be updated, the new curriculum needs to be introduced, our students should learn to solve the challenges of life, being risk-takers, be intuitive, appreciate goodwill.

We as a nation need to give freedom to our students, the 16-year-old must have a source of income, social interaction, and freedom of speech and choice. They are the future developer, support of our country and by now every one of us should accept and realize that the current system is not working.

Education is not the learning of facts but the training of the mind to think.

We at Tutors and Tuition are always up for this change, academic change is a must, personality development, counseling, and widening the perspective of an established career. We are willing to train teachers on how to ignite the learning interest, tutors to establish a firm connection with the students, and educators to reinstate real education.

Be it Home tutors or Online Tutors, institutions or academies, private or government schools and colleges, we are inclined to constantly introduce change in the educational system because the mode and aspect of education keep changes.
