Abstract

The graduating Senior High School students from General Academic Strand students face problems choosing their college track. The purpose of this study is to identify the perception of Grade 12 General Academic Strand on their strand towards their college track and how the males and females assessed their career choice in terms of knowledge, skills, and career orientation who currently enrolled in Bestlink College of the Philippines school year 2022-2023. The study utilized a quantitative research design and employed fifty (50) Grade 12 General Academic Strand students selected through stratified random sampling. The respondents were divided into two (2) male and female groups. It reveals that male and female respondents agree that the General Academic Strand helps the Grade 12 students' future careers regarding knowledge, skills, and career orientation. This study revealed that the null hypothesis is accepted. There is no significant difference between the assessments of the two groups of respondents in terms of knowledge and skills. Still, the null hypothesis was rejected because there is a significant difference in the assessment of the two groups regarding career orientation. The General Academic Strand students should apply the knowledge acquired in the General Academic Strand to choosing a career. They also should consider the skills acquired in the General Academic Strand for choosing a career, and the General Academic Strand should consider the experiences gained in the General Academic Strand choosing a career.
