  • In addition to these, students are to choose their Compulsory Trade/Entrepreneurship subject from the list of available trade subjects in the school.
  • Students may then choose 1 elective subject, that is outside their field of specialization; and provided that the TOTAL NUMBER OF examinable subjects is not more than nine (9) i.e.
  • 5 cross cutting (including 1 Trade/Entrepreneurship)
  • 3/4 subjects from field of specialization
  • 1 elective subject

Electives are subjects chosen outside the student’s specialized field of study. For example, a science student may decide to take Visual Art or Economics as an elective, whereas an Art student may choose Biology as elective. The whole idea of offering the electives is simply to ensure that the students are exposed to a wide-range of broad-based education without unnecessarily overloading them.
