Jyothi’s Answer

For your 11th and 12th standard, you can take the Maths, science and computer science group, where you are taught the basics of a programming language and logic. Later on, you can apply to the engineering colleges of your choice through entrance exams. In India, JEE Mains and JEE Advanced are the most common entrance exams, there are also a lot of entrance exams that are specific to certain colleges. In college, you can choose the Bachelors in Computer Science course. And once in college, focus on basics like Data Structures and algorithms, Networks, a couple of programming languages, Math, Databases, Operating Systems. You would also get opportunities to explore other domains like Machine learning, cybersecurity, etc. You could also pursue any of those based on your interest.

Excellent choice. Software is a leading trend and i wish you all the best here.

On what you should study, for now stick to what is taught in School. When you progress to +1+2(or PUC), you will learn C and C++. Since software engineer is the field you are looking for try to understand the WHY's in programming. Try to explore languages like Python , Ruby etc. There is a concept called data structures- Learn and be good on this as you progress and you will be golden. :-)

Lovekesh’s Answer

During your next 2 years, choose science and mathematics as your subjects. Some schools also offer programming languages (C, C++) as additional subjects so you can opt for them as well. Please keep in mind if you want to go for a formal undergrad course in software engineering after your school, you would need to be prepared to meet eligibility criteria and also clear entrance exams of your choice of colleges. Mathematics and programming languages will help you to have an added advantage.

These days different schools and companies also organise programming competitions (Called Hackathons), you should start participating in these after you have learnt basic programming skills.
