5 Things You Need to Know about Accountancy, Business, and Management Strand

Things about ABM

It was in my 9th grade when we were given a test called National Career Assessment Examination or NCAE. I did not prepare for it, but I took it seriously during the exam proper.

Since Math has been my favorite subject ever since so, when we received the results, I did not wonder why it was the subject where I got my highest rating. Aside from testing what you know and what you like, this test aims to assess the students on what career they are fit for based on their answers.

Guess what? The results recommended that I pursue Accountancy, Business, and Management strand, which is exactly what I had chosen when I entered Senior High School. So if you are still on 9th grade or prior to it, you should take the NCAE seriously to help you decide which strand is best for you. 

On the other side, if you ahave just completed Junior High School and reading some articles about it because you are still undecided as to what strand you are going to take, there is an infographic explaining why you should take ABM if you have those things.

The first question is, are you interested in a career that involves numbers, strategy, and analysis? The Accountancy, Business, and Management strand best suits those interests. 

This versatile academic strand will equip you with essential knowledge and skills to excel in finance, entrepreneurship, and organizational management. So expect that you are going to deal with a lot of numbers and of course, analization. If you have it both, then you're good to go and choose this. Anyway, here is an infographic to visually present the facts to you.
