"Proper" Number Of A-Level Subjects And Subject Combinations - A Discussion

The debate over the “proper” number of subjects and subject combinations that students should take has been sparked by students scoring more than 15 points (3 As) at the Advanced Level (A-Level).

In a previous article, Pindula News stated that some analysts believe it is not necessary to take more than the standard three subjects, while others contend that adding extra subjects gives students more options than those who adhere to the customary three.

Some say the recommended number of subjects at A-Level is 3-4, adding that the best number should depend on the student’s abilities and goals.

Participants of the radio show “Mhuri YeZimbabwe,” which was hosted by Chivandika and sponsored by Success Network Africa, emphasised the need for career counselling. Listen to the audio below for more:

Indeed, it's not necessary to burden your child with so many subjects at O and A level. Some of those subjects are even related if not the same and Employers count them as one.. The minimum O level requirement is 5 Os for A levels is three connected Subjects, I say connected subjects because it's the combination that is required in further studies.. Without that combo you are just as good as some O level chaps across the street.

if there is a maximum number of subjects to take so why that it was allowed to take more than expected, there is nothing to debate. only what is needed is to congratulate that guy for a marvelous performance, he's the first to reach that level and nobody is expected to second him

It's just like marrying 10 wives yet you can be satisfied by one. Anywhere it's one's life.

as the first minister of education in Zimbabwe I can see that the problem started when the ministry was minced into primary and psychomotor higher education and so forth
we need one education ministry and not this mincemeat scenario comrades

Uribenzi. My brother went to Harvard University with zimsec yaukutozaiza. Soo many Zimbabweans working in China, Europe and America with zimsec yamunotarisira pasi. Your comments on this platform won't make any difference. Zimsec is recognised worldwide. Hama dxangu. Mungasvore henyu asi chero zvikadii tinongoenda munoshanda kunze kwemakungwa neZimsec iyoyo inoleaker. Vans vedu vakazara Kuma University ekunze doing wonders. Even Kwavari kushandisa Zimbabweans are sought after because of their hard work capabilities and great minds. Nenyaya yehu**** hwako hauna 5 o levels including maths wosvora. Wakasara hama yangu
