I have just finished 10th and feel like I should take science as my course. Could someone give some advice as to what courses I could take other than medicine and engineering??
This document gives you some idea about the fields/opportunities available (in India) after you 10+2 and the eligibility criteria (the courses you should do in 10+2). Give some thought about what are the possible fields (listed in the document) you want to explore in your under-graduate study.
Depending on your analysis, you can make a decision about the courses you want to pick in your 10+2
Hope this helps!
Taking up science after 10th doesn't mean you have to opt for either medicine or engineering . There are a lot of options and there is no harm in going for commerce related fields after studying science in 11th and 12th.
Some of the options include -> Architecture, Fashion technology, Finance, CA, CS, Teacher, Writer, Civil Services and more.
A very good question.
We all must respect our parents and their decisions. But remember if u get into something you do not like then it wont last for long. Even if it lasts long you would just be an average performer. Know your abilities, strengths and choose your career wisely.
As far as the Commerece field is considered it is one of the most pursued career streams in India.
There are so many options :-
CA, CS, BBA+MBA
Details you can check out at Career in Commerce
For all the other career streams you can refer :- Career Options
In today's world, there are plenty of career opportunities available outside of
medicine and engineering.
Commerce is one option with which you can very well pursue job opportunities
in sectors like banking and finance.
