Degree Courses - Science

Are you completed 12th board exams?
Are you worried about the most important question – ‘what next?it is a million dollar question!

  • Whether you wish to change your stream, or you wish to make your career in science related field, there are options for all!
  • You just need to assess your personal things including self interest, skill set and financial backup.
  • Before getting in to the career selection we will see the basic things, as mentioned below.

There are three primary streams after 12th

  • Arts Stream
  • Commerce Stream
  • Science stream

Science stream is further divided into two different sub-categories

  • Maths category  - Maths, Physics and Chemistry
  • Biology category - Physics, Chemistry and Biology/ ( Botany and Zoology)

Traditional Issues - There are a lot of field which you can choose after clearing 12th from science field in the world.

But it completely depends on you that what you really want to choose and based on your interest.

In many occasions I come across people completing their courses in science field and then working in some other field like finance/ journalism/ social sector.

This happens because they don't know how to choose their career based on their interest. They just listen to other people and stay confused throughout their career and finally end in picking up any other job which is not even related to what they have studied/interested.

So instead of suggesting you about the career, first I will suggest you to find which subject you are interested or which is the field you think you can give your best.

It is often said that if you choose your career based on your interest and hobby, the success rate as well as satisfaction level will be very high.
As Darwin said “Fittest can only survive in the world” in his natural selection theory

Do not choose any career under the influence of friends or parents. Give priority to your potential and interest. It should be the sole criteria of selecting a career.
