About A/L ICT

Information Communication Technology (ICT) is the only subject that can be studied in any stream you follow for your Advanced Levels. (May it be Maths , Biology, Commerce or Arts). This clearly shows the importance of ICT.ICT and General Information Technology (GIT) are two different subjects.GIT is a compulsory subject for all students like General English. But you could study ICT as a main subject in any stream. This subject was introduced by the Ministry of Education in 2009, included in the 16th circular.

Physical Science stream. (Maths)
  • Combined Maths , Higher Maths , Physics , Chemistry , ICT (Here ICT can be choose instead of chemistry)
Biological Sciences stream
  • Biology , Chemistry , Physics , ICT (Here ICT can be choose instead of Physics)
Technology Stream
  • Science for Technology , Engineering Technology or Bio Systems , ICT (Here ICT is selected as the Third Subject )
Commerce stream
  • Accounting , Business Studies , Econ ( ICT with any of these 2 subjects )
Arts stream
  • you can select ICT as a main subject. (Under the category of Social Sciences )

But choosing ICT in Maths ,Commerce ,Arts and Technology streams is more valuable and Effective .So personally I don’t recommend ICT for biology students.
