Can a science or art student study Banking and Finance?
No! If you are a Science or an Art student, you cannot study Banking and Finance at the polytechnic because it is a pure commercial course which need a good background on commercial subjects. To avoid discouragement, you can go for this course if you wish provided you have the required subjects combination in your O level result.
