An even better way to go about this sort of thing would be to give the psychometric tests first to find out what sort of career each person is suited for, and then require them to study subjects pertaining to that career.

The result will be exactly the same as banning them from entering the career after schooling, except this would save the wasted time and expense of taking the wrong courses.
