Careers After 10 + 2 - Career Planning and Choice of Courses

Student should begin the career planning when they are in Ninth Standard. Student has to choose his subjects when he enters 10 +2 / Intermediate. It can be science or commerce stream. In Science stream there are two combinations one is for engineering (PCM) and other is for medical stream (PCB). Now selection of Boards is also important because in new entrance examinations the marks of Intermediate would also be taken in account for selection in a professional course. So a student has to score good marks in his 10 + 2 examination.

A student of 10th might not have full knowledge about different career options before him. This is the main drawback for students, that they don't have persons who can guide them through correct career path. Parents can only provide information about their careers in which they are working. Internet searches can provide information about colleges and courses. No one can access your interest, whether you want to become doctor, engineer, CA, teacher, scientist, artist, journalist or an entrepreneur. In this page we have listed all possible career groups from which you can choose the best suitable for yourself.

Financial condition is a big limiting factor because all the professional colleges have high academic fees. Competition for entrance exam is also a limitation factor as lot of coaching institutes have sprung up which train student according to the exact exam format, for that they charge high fees which everyone cannot afford. So the correct way is judge your capabilities and keep each career path listed below in front of you and ask yourself following questions -

  • How many marks should you get in your 10 + 2 exam?
  • Do you have interest in it?
  • What is the cost of that course?
  • Can your family afford coaching for that entrance exam or you will do self study
  • What are the future prospects of that career?
