Q1: Dear sir, I am in the 4th Semester of BSc (Hons) Agriculture Science in Arid Agriculture University, Rawalpindi. I have to choose a major subject in 5th semester and in your opinion which subject has a wider scope at national and international level? Entomology, Plant Breeding & Genetics, Plant Pathology, Agronomy or Food Technology? My CGPA is 3.60/4.00. (Sufiyan Saeed – Rawalpindi)

Q2: I am from FATA. I have done MBA specialization in Human Resourced Management (HRM) and Master in International Relations which means I have done double master. Now I want to PhD but I am really confused that in which field I will do PhD. I have decided to do MS & MPhil in Management, Strategic Human Resources Management and International Relations. I can’t decide subjects for MS/MPhil and PhD too. I’m eligible for above three programmes like management as I have done MBA, I’m also eligible for SHRM because I have done MBA specialization in HRM and I’m also eligible for International Relations because I have done Master in IR. Please tell me which field will be more beneficial for me in future so that I can hold that field. (Sadiq Afridi – Fata)
