Selecting a strand is a crucial act to every student in such way that they have to considered their financial status, parents and peer suggestion, and also their self-choice in acting on it. This study investigates whether financial status with self-choice; parents influence with self-choice; and peer influence with self-choice are having an association with each other in selecting a strand. 214 of students by complete enumeration answered the questionnaire on financial status and likert-scale for parental influence, peer influence, and self-choice and the data gathered been analyzed via weighted mean, frequency, chi-square and lambda in determining their association. The result shows that the financial status of students in school alone is inclined to self-choice in the selection of a strand but not with parental and peers influence in selecting a strand. In other words, parents and peers show no significant association with self-choice of students, though the influences of parents and peers are noticeable.
