Exclamation HELP!!!! Can't decide which course to take

I'm trying to decide between these two courses which are ELP Leading to a Diploma in Applied Science (Pharmaceutical Sciences) from Republic Polytechnic and ELP leading to Diploma in Infocomm & Digital Media (IT Network & System Administration) from Nanyang Polytechnic as my nitec cert (Nitec in Opticianry) and higher Nitec cert (Higher Nitec in Network Security Technology)

For ELP Leading to a Diploma in Applied Science (Pharmaceutical Sciences), the reason for choosing it was because I notice the job scope is mostly at the back end role for polyclinic and hospital settings although there is also front end duties in dispensing medicines to patient. But, I heard that it will be tough to cope for those whom didn't foundation knowledge in biology or chemistry in secondary school (FYI, I was under Normal Technical stream in secondary school). I want to know from the experiences of those whom are studying pharmacy science without any foundation knowledge of studying biology or chemistry. Also, I wanted to know how tough is it to be a pharmacy technician after studying pharmacy science.

For ELP leading to Diploma in Infocomm & Digital Media (IT Network & System Administration), the reason for choosing it was because I have some foundation when I was in ITE studying Higher Nitec in Network Security Technology. The main concern I have was I'm only afraid if there is a lot of programming to do for both coursework and on the job training as well. I have recently got kicked out of Singapore Polytechnic as I failed the same module twice which is a programming module. I want to know how tough it is to work in IT industry as an IT administrator.

Please advise if possible

Most of the CET Diploma require 1 year relevant experience in order to get into the course for Higher Nitec. For ELP, there's an immediate placement

Iím 25 this year with close to zero work experience since I went through a Long route (2 years nitec,2 years HNitec, 2 years National service).RP offered me a full time diploma in aerospace engineering. I couldíve disrupted my NS to enter poly last year but I was dumb for not doing so. I came across the ELP leading to diploma in Infocomm & digital media just this year and Iím having second thoughts about My full time placing in RP. Since the ELP offers a job and a diploma. So I might see you in NYP.
