Through the implementation of Republic Act (RA) 10533 or K-12 Program during the Aquino III administration an additional 2 years in High School, called Senior High School, was added to the curriculum. The researchers used structured questionnaire and Google form to properly disseminate the questions. The result of the gathered data showed that 80.67% of the strands of the 119 pioneer SHS graduates of Bulacan State University Laboratory High School are aligned to their current course. The researchers also determined that (a) Strong Desire/Interest in the Course, (b) Possible Financial Outcome, and (c) Employment Prospects were the 3 major factors that contributed to their decision in enrolling in their current course. The researchers concluded that the respondents chose their course according to their interest in their future profession and future financial and employment matters in connection to their previous Senior High School strands. The researchers recommend this research to be conducted with the succeeding batch of Senior High School of Bulacan State University Laboratory High School to determine if the administrators and coordinators continuously do the mandatory guides and seminars for their students and to determine whether the students planned beforehand for their future.
