Students should align their choice of majors with the needs of the job market, a senior education official said Monday. \"Students should choose a major which matches their capabilities and ambitions. They should also strike a balance between the specialisation they choose and the needs of the job market,\" Dubai Education Zone Director Dr Ahmad Eid Al Mansouri said. He was speaking Monday at a ceremony organised by the Dubai Education Zone to honour Dubai\'s top scorers of the Grade 12 public school exams. Twenty-two pupils - 11 each from the Science and Art streams - who scored above 98 per cent in the exams were honoured by Minister of Education Humaid Mohammad Obaid Al Qutami in a ceremony held at the Dubai Police Academy.
