Nowadays with a lot of options available, it has increasingly become very confusing for students to opt for a right career path and they are often confused about the right career choices. After Class 10th results are out, students are often very lost about which stream of subjects they should choose and what would be right for them. Despite all this confusion, many understand that these choices are very crucial in building the future of a child. Hence they must be made very carefully and after having a thorough knowledge of all the available options. Even if the option of career counselling is available, we see that its more often than not very inaccessible to a large majority of students in India. In this article we have described the various choices open to students after class 10th and what can those choices lead to in terms of career in the future.
Career Options After Class 10th
Students primarily after class 10th are given the choice to opt for different subjects/streams- Science, Commerce and Arts. First we will discuss these options and then go on to other choices available to the students.
Science is one of the most preferred stream after class 10th. Students like to go for this stream because it gives them various career options after class 12th like engineering, medical, research etc. There are many other government exams like NDA/NA exam conducted by UPSC which requires candidates to have studied science stream. Besides, Science stream is also good as students have the option to swtich to other streams like commerce and arts. The subjects in science stream are physics, biology, chemistry and maths. Students can opt for different combinations of these. The various career options available after you clear class 12th with science stream are as follows:

After having gone through all of these options, students must remember the most important lesson that whatever choices they make, they should definitely make them wisely. However, they should at no point of time burden themselves with pressure that is most likely to harm them. People choose different paths in life to be successful and some paths take longer time than others but it does not mean that the path was wrong. Infact success in itself is a very subjective term. It holds different meaning for different people. The time that you spend in school while growing up, during working hard for whatever makes you feel good, happy and seems right to you, is the time when you fall multiple times and learn to rise above your mistakes.
