In my recent study of HSC, I have studied Principles of Business, Accounting, Economics and Commercial Studies – these subjects have similarities with the learning outcome and syllabus structure of this HND I have chosen. This will complement the learning and help me understand the HND study better with greater interest. My other subjects including statistics, mathematics, English in my SSC and HSC will also have transferrable learning areas to some extent and this would help me gathering maximum output from the learning target of this HND. I must motion that HND is a higher level academic programme than that of my current qualifications and hence I will gain advanced level knowledge and learning from the study while making academic progressions.
