These subjects were tailored specifically for each expertise. In this way, a student doesn’t need to study a subject he or she doesn’t have any interest. Instead, he/she can pick the track that can greatly encourage him/her to pursue study and chosen career path. Extra care should be given while choosing a track so as not to waste time (and money, too).
