Who must choose ICS as an intermediate higher secondary certification in Pakistan?
If you think that every student must study ICS, you need to check if you are just considering the hype or it is actually worthwhile to indulge all the human resources in it.
Many people need to think that they are really into the computer or want to enjoy it as a facility? If you want to create something in the virtual world of a computer, then and only then join it. Being a guide, parent, student, or teacher, you must consider the following things before deciding to opt for ICS.
Creative people should choose ICS.
If you have an innovative mind, say you love to draw, sketch, and create new things that nobody has ever done. You are a problem solver; you can survive as a successful person in the computer science field.
Pakistan is a developing country; many international companies, will seek innovative minds who would create new stuff in the digital world and would finance such ideas. Many people think that a child who loves to draw should only opt for social sciences; what they do not consider is the capability to create, which is the most needed skill in the computer science field.
You want to help people.
This may sound very off the topic, but trust me, a computer scientist or a software engineer can create a lot of software for the general masses. You do not always go for the sociology or social work relevant sciences to help Pakistan’s masses. A game, software, or any application can be the best way to help people smartly. For example, somebody invented the online banking application to help the masses pay utility bills and send money in no time.
You love mathematics.
Without mathematics, you cannot be a successful student in ICS or not even in computer science. As a subject, the computer is a bit related to mathematics, especially the applied sciences. So, if you love addition, subtraction, variables, and functions can continue to study mathematics till your higher studies. To be a bit realistic, it is a tough combination for those who will not stay passionate. Well, just in case you feel discouraged, mathematics is the only subject that is the core of every science and, in fact, the code of the universe itself. So, leaving it is not an option when working in a virtual world in computer sciences.
