Students are often confused about what subjects to choose after completing their school education. More often than not, such students end up selecting their fields half-heartedly, giving up other interests. Young minds are interested in several fields and compartmentalization of disciplines is actually hampering their potential for excelling in life and finding creative solutions for complex problems.
