Your ICS Combination matters

Yes, there are 6 subjects you study in ICS: English, Urdu, Islamic Education/Pak Study, Computer Science, Mathematics OR Economics, States or Physics. The main thing is the combination you study in ICS. You may have studied one of the following combinations in your ICS course.
English, Urdu, Islamic Education/Pak Study and:

  1. Mathematics, Physics and Computer Science
  2. Mathematics, Statistics and Computer Science
  3. Economics, Computer Science and Mathematics
  4. Computer Science, Statistics and Economics
So, with any combination, your ICS is considered ICS. Now you might be looking for what you can do if you have passed your ICS. 

What to do After ICS?

That is the 1st question after you leave your examination center on the last paper of your ICS part 2 (that is of course if you have quite good hope of passing it). Now you can do what is best for you. I have only given here the possible options that you can choose from. Your ICS maybe with stats or with economics or with maths, you can still go into the following fields if you pass your ICS with decent marks.

Marks Matter

Whatever you plan to do after your ICS, you must keep in mind that you will face difficulty in getting admission if you have poor marks in ICS.
