Choosing The Right Stream and University

All of the candidates are prepping up for the imminent admission test. At the very outset, we are wishing you all the best for the big test in your life.

You have to do well in it so that you can choose your favourite stream for further studies. Here are some tips for you to make the right decision.

Today's undergraduates no longer expect to love their subject the way they did a decade ago. All they care about now is job prospects. In many respects, this is true that students want to pursue degree in those subjects that will benefit them financially in the long run. But for the admission-seeking candidates it is advisable that the main reason for pursuing a university degree should not be just to get a ‘good job’ rather they should also consider their interest in that particular subject or course.

Well, when it comes to choosing the right subject to complete their post-graduation, students should take two things into consideration.
Firstly, choose subjects you enjoy and are good at. Your chances of doing well and achieving the standards assessed in your courses are better when you enjoy the subjects, or have a natural talent for them. These are the subjects you should look at first when choosing your course. Universities offer a lot of options. But you should choose a subject that suits you the best. If you are thinking of taking a subject, but you don't know much about it, then talk to a teacher.

Secondly, choose subjects that support what you want to do after your graduation. It is sensible to choose subjects and courses that relate to what you want to do after you leave university. Many careers or qualifications have special requirements.

For example, if you want to be a motor mechanic it makes sense to consider one of the technology subjects. Or, if a career in medicine appeals to you, you should do science subjects like chemistry and physics or enroll yourself into an MBBS program.

Formal education can give you the career you desire, but pursuing degree in relevant and significant subjects or career courses can offer you an edge over thousands and lakhs of aspirants. So, this is the right time to make the right decision related to your study life.

And as far as choosing the right university is concerned, students should keep in mind that public universities should always be the first priority. If you are interested to study engineering related subjects, then BUET will be the best choice. Other than BUET, students can also go for the universities like IUT, RUET, KUET etc. Again if you want to be a doctor, then you should try to get yourself enrolled at any of the public medical colleges because studying at a private medical college can be quite expensive.

However if you want to study genetic engineering, then Dhaka University is the best choice. Dhaka University is also a good place to pursue higher degrees in the subjects such as Biochemistry, Microbiology, English, Applied Chemistry etc. While Rajshahi University is the perfect choice for the students who want to study English, Public Administration and Fisheries. Meanwhile Jahangirnagar University offers quality courses on Pharmacy, Computer Science and Engineering etc.

Well, students who will not be able to make a place into a public university should not feel frustrated as there are so many private universities who are offering quality education. So the opportunity of education is always open for you. For now, just concentrate on your study and put your best efforts in the admission test. Best of luck to all the candidates!
