Secondary school student tends to be short-sighted when choosing a career path. Most of them believe that the only courses worth studying are Medicine, Law and Banking and Finance. This makes them waste time when looking for admission and spend their time choosing the wrong path. Some of them end up getting admitted to study the course they don't like. The students are ignorant of prospective opportunities in other courses.
IMPLICATION OF THE PROBLEM
As a result of the shortage of information on various career opportunities, students tend to waste their time pursuing admission for course they did not really like. They were forced to study it because it is perceived to be the best option for them. This has made some courses to be congested in term of admission seeking. This lack of career exposure will later make some student study courses they never dream about. This will make the student develop a negative attitude toward study (loss of passion and interest). They have been several cases of student switching career after their first degree. Some student doesn’t even know what their career of interest is all about. Why should you spend time and money taking a career path you don’t want?
