So, which major will your child pursue? Aegis Advisors suggests to start the exploration process earlier on to help students shortlist interest areas and potential majors. Early planning is key, especially if you plan to apply to UK universities, as different majors will have different course requirements that need to be fulfilled during secondary school.
