Choosing a subject for you to study for three years in a university is something quite baffling for the students. There are mainly three reasons for them to choose any specific subject and yet they sometimes fail to come out with the desired percentage. Let us go through those pick points which can be either misleading or succeeding for them.
They Pick a Subject at which they have been getting good marks:
It is might be the most common reason for a fresher to pick a subject. He will simply choose a subject in which he has been scoring good marks at college. In that case there won’t be a matter of choice. They will be all set to pick a subject and go with the wind. It is not always a good decision but somehow it is never a bad choice. What actually can be the reason of failure if it happens so in future, is that it doesn’t support your career or it cannot help you earn a handsome amount. But if your favorite subject is also supporting your career choice, you can be lucky enough to get a dream job and there will be chances for you to get promotions as you will work with full interest.
They Pick a Subject of Their Parents’ Choice:
This is to some extent an old theory and its becoming obsolete with the passage of time but still it exists. About 25% of College Graduates move on with the subject of their dads’ choice. It is totally a ruining idea specially when the student has lesser interest in that subject. If he would be forced to pick a career line of his parents’ choice, possibly he will never get a chance to progress in that.
They Copy their Fellows and Do Whatever a Friend is Going to Do:
It’s a rare scenario but it occurs sometimes. It can be taken as the most foolish act from an educated person. Some shy and unconfident students pick a subject what their best friends are going to choose. You can only go through it positively if you have equal interest in studying that specific subject or else you will regret of your choice. We sometimes take things emotionally rather than wisely. Another cause of picking a subject same as your friend’s is the support, the bonding and cooperation you have been practicing being together but keep one thing in mind, it is not a minor period. You have to study it for complete three years so try to be a little wise.
After going through the conventional theories to choose a subject for university, here are some important tips for you to pick your subject wisely and make it through your university time successfully.
According to educational seniorities and scholars, there are two main factors which literary effect your learning and that must be considered while making a decision for your subject; interest or aptitude, previous score. Both of these aspects carry equal value but the prior one is slightly more important. Interest works as the key element for success.
- First of all, make a list of courses which you like to study. Means the subject you enjoy to study should be enlisted. It will be the most initial step you will be taking. Thousands of student enter the university without having a glimpse or idea about what they actually want to study. For that you have to observe what you have been loving to do previously.
- Secondly, pick the subjects at which you have been scoring good marks. It is not necessary that those will be the same subjects you have chosen before. There are courses which you don’t find much interesting but you just feel these like a piece of cake.
- 3rd step is to check newly introduced courses as well. The subjects which are different from conventional ones are often those with a great scope ahead. Do a deep research and go through the reviews of seniors who have already done those. If you feel like you can do good in that field, you can go for it.
- Get a paper again and shortlist the group of courses which suit you the most. You can draw either from the first list or mix it up with the new courses as well if you find them interesting.
Hopefully, you can make a good decision following the steps are given above. If you are still confused about it, here is another solution to your problem.
As we all know that career is highly important for those who are willing to get into higher studies. Basically, there is always a motivation to make a career behind every student coming to university. So it can be the second thing you should consider.
Career Based Courses:
If you have a clear instinct of heading towards some specific career, the decision can be so quick and easy. There are career based courses which you can choose from. If your desired career is somewhat different from the obvious once like being a doctor, professor or lawyer, you can choose a subject that would help. Sometimes the pre-decided careers modify your interests as well and that is a good sign to be successful.
Thorough Research is needed:
Keep one thing in your mind that there is no course which doesn’t have any negativity, cons or disadvantages, list it out. You have to do a deep research, contact senior students, teachers and subject advisor before making the final decision. Don’t be hasty or you will end up doing something which is absolutely profitless for you.
