Education is one of the most marketable courses in Kenya. The Teachers Service Commission [TSC] is the main employer of teachers in Kenya. It may take a while for you to secure the job but once you do, you are good to go. Factors such as subject combination, willingness of one to work in any part of the country and the length of one’s stay after graduation usually affects one’s chance of being employed by the Teachers Service Commission [TSC]. It is definitely important to put into consideration the marketability of certain subject combination before delving deeper into them. The following are the top 10 marketable TSC subject combinations in 2020;
Biology and Chemistry;
When there is any combination with Chemistry in it, it becomes more marketable because it is only Physics and Biology that can be combined.

This is usually very marketable. The main advantage here is that you do not have to have taken Home science in high school as long as you did Biology and scored C+ and above in it.
Physics and Chemistry;
This is one of the most marketable subject combinations. The main advantage to those who do it is backed by the fact that few students enroll for it, making it more marketable. If you have a passion in these two subjects and you scored a C+ and above in KCSE or both, then go ahead and take it.
