Will it affect my future career or the course that I want to take up in university?” There are so many questions that you may be still finding the answers to.
Well, of course, scoring well in Economics is not the only ticket you need to fulfil all your wishes. But we can say for sure that it does come close to one! Taking up Economics as a subject and giving it your best shot is definitely beneficial for you – especially for your future university degree. Curious to know why? Keep reading to find out more!
Admission requirement for local or overseas universities.
As someone who will be entering university in the near future, you might want to get yourself familiar with the admission requirements of the universities you wish to study in. One of the key requirements for admission especially in local universities such as NUS or NTU is to have a H2 content subject in a contrasting discipline.
For example, if you are currently in the Science stream, you would need at least one subject that is from the contrasting discipline, in this case, the Arts stream. So if you are someone who is looking for other subjects in the Arts stream that you may have previously studied before during secondary school, Economics is definitely the subject you should consider.
Prerequisite for certain courses in universities
There are certain faculties and courses that will definitely require good grades in Economics as the main prerequisite for many Humanities, Business and Finance related courses. Even if it is not the main prerequisite, the knowledge and content you learn when studying Economics can give you an ‘edge’ among your peers for your future course in those disciplines. In fact, this could act as the stepping stone into navigating the many advanced concepts you might be exposed to during university, where a lot of self-studying and proactive learning will be required.
The analytical and critical thinking skills honed through studying the subject will definitely prove to be beneficial and applicable not only in your university course, but to other areas in life as well! This makes understanding the concepts and the content easier for you because you would be able to relate to it better – and in turn, it could translate into scoring well for the subject! Who knows, you might even fall in love with the subject and choose to pursue an Economics related degree! All the more reason to choose Economics and do well for it.
To use as a competitive advantage over your peers!
At the end of the day, your rank points play a huge role in differentiating your university application with that of the rest, when competing for a spot in your preferred university degree programme – especially if it is a popular or a competitive one. Yes, you certainly can’t deny that there are some courses that are definitely popular, with many other students – both overseas and local vying for a spot. You might also notice most of the courses tend to have a cap on their cohort intake.
Keeping both of these factors in mind, it is therefore highly recommended to attain scores higher than the recommended in the indicative grade profiles to ensure your spot in your ‘dream course’. So even if Economics isn’t your favourite/best subject, you need to do well in order to gain that competitive advantage (something you will learn when you study Economics) over your peers!
So now you might be wondering how to do well in Economics, having read the article thus far.
