Students that dream to become a doctor, engineer, the scientist should choose science stream which incorporates many inspiring career options.
Students that choose science must be clear and totally focused about their goal before choosing this stream because it has limited career options. Careers like Medical, Engineering, Physician have an awe-inspiring pay-outs but they require a longer duration of studies, higher investment in the education and not mention, focussed dedication is a must.
The Medical Students take much longer duration (8-10 years) to complete their studies and in case they do not qualify for the Government colleges, they might have to pay a huge capital in the form of fees in order to complete their studies.
Engineering takes four years for the completion of the studies and getting a degree Duration of Engineering but pursuing engineering from a local college is not good for the career. To be an ace engineer, one should crack the competitive exams like IIT-JEE, AIEEE and get landed in the pioneer colleges of India but the catch is, the seats are limited. Every year around 15 lakh students appear for JEE out of which around 2 lakhs get selected in JEE advance. And after the screening, only 30,000 students get selected for 10 to 11 thousand seats available. So, dedication is must, the goal should be set. Science stream has the subjects: Mathematics, Biology, Physics, Chemistry, IP, electronics, etc.
Though the craze has been decreased for the Arts stream but still, Arts gives you some of the most exciting job opportunities in the field of Social Works, Fashion Designing, Interior Designer, Literature, Journalism, etc.
If you think that your goals suit the career options associated with Arts, then you must go for it. Core subjects in Arts stream are sociology, history, literature, psychology, political science, philosophy, economics, etc.
We sincerely hope this article helps you in choosing the stream after the completion of class 10th.
