Closer look at personal preference At the moment, most high school students are registering for the papers to be taken in the High School Graduation Examination, including the two combinations of Physics – Chemistry – Biology (natural sciences) and History – Geography – Civic Education (social sciences). Yet many of them are still indecisive as to which future career to select. M.A Pham Doan Nguyen, Deputy Director of the Center for Admission and Communications under the HCMC University of Economics and Finance, affirmed that high school students should not choose highly-sought jobs just because of herd mentality. Instead, they should look into their own ability and preference.

VietNamNet Bridge - In developed countries, high school students study four to five subjects, while Vietnamese students have 14. Tran Thi Tam Dan, former chair of the NA’s Committee for Culture, Education, the Youth and Children, said that Vietnamese high school students have too many subjects, both compulsory and optional. She said in developed countries, students can choose five subjects. This is because students in the last years at general school need to receive more knowledge about the fields they will follow in the future. These could be basic sciences, economics majors, technical subjects or culture and the arts. Dan believes that morality lessons should be provided to students before they enter the 12th grade. Seniors should be given more time to focus on subjects that will be useful for their future jobs.
