why would you want to put the popular ones as your 1st 3 choices?

why don't you put the courses you are interested in?

popular does not equate to 'better prospects'.

I think those related to data analytics (T60) and IT (T69,T63,T62,T30) are good choices because they are growing sectors.

Like what others have previous mentioned, what is popular may not be suitable for you. Also what is popular today may be out of fashion tomorrow.

IMHO. There is no real answer to your question.

One way to look at it is that, if you're male and need to serve NS, you may want to consider to choose the most unpopular courses. Those that do not need to serve NS will have a head start, so by the time you're out, only leftovers for you.

Another way of looking at it is to choose the courses that will potentially pay your the most .... so you can use the $ to enjoy.

A realistic way to see is to do more leg work. Go to the respective courses pages in the poly website and look under careers. Select the job titles and do a search for job offers. Look at the requirements, do they want Degree or Diplomas? Are these companies MNCs ? Will they be still here in the future ?

Good luck.

I agree with this. It is hard to predict what the job market will be like when you graduate years later. There's a possibility of too many IT and data science graduates, because many are being attracted to take these courses these days.
