Expert View: Career and Courses Option After Class 10th

Career After Class 10: Being a career advisor since last 10 years, I have come across many highly qualified & talented young students who have the quality to make the difference, but generally they fail to do so in the long run. And we all know the reason very well. Due to a lack of understanding and better career guidance, students are often confused and clueless after their 10th Board examination.

In a country of billion dreams and a place where your report card decides your future, it becomes almost impossible to succeed if you are not well prepared for the circumstances.

If you ask me about the toughest decision, I took in my entire life, choosing which stream to go for Career after class 10. As there is a typical mindset that the brightest of all who get appreciations throughout his life is only applicable for science or engineering and rest of the streams like Arts/ Humanity and Commerce are not for the right students. In most of our country, people opt their stream based on their marks and not by their choice.

CBSE Useful Resources

Below we have mentioned the Class 1-12th Useful Resources which will definitely help you crack the CBSE Board Exam 2020.

They are forced to follow the typical stereotype of our society Arts/commerce Lekar Zindagi Barbad Karega kya..? But now the scenario has changed totally. The globalisation effect and quality of Education/Placement Cells ensure that no talent from any field will go to vain. Due to which even students from different streams like commerce and arts are doing exceptionally well in their life.

Career After Class 10th

In this segment, we just tried to give you a short description about what after class 10th and different career option available after class Xth. In India there are mainly three streams available after class x, these are Science, Commerce and Arts/Humanities.

(A) Science

Rightly said, “Science is not just a subject; it’s a weapon of knowledge through which one can solve the world’s majority of problems and also help us to know the world around us”. It not only involves a lot of talking and listening which automatically enhance the patience and communication skills it teaches the children’s to form an opinion of their own instead of taking those of others for granted.

Who can opt for science?

If you have decided to become an engineer who use their creativity and skills to develop a better world or to serve mankind by becoming a doctor or if you have selected to make an impact on people’s life by becoming a scientist, or you have just chosen it just because you love to play with the equations and get thrilled by the practical knowledge gained by it then undoubtedly science has a promising career for you.

You can also say that it’s a social science that deals with the study of the production, distribution, and consumption of goods and services and enable us to learn more about how the world works.

In India, there is a wrong mentality that people who chose science steam after 10th are more intelligent than those who chose either art or commerce.

History also gives us more profound insights into the world in which we live in and hence enables us to approach and solve problem-based upon well-reasoned arguments and firm foundation.

Who can opt for Arts?

Art is a subject to study the prime concern with the processes and products of human creativity and social life, such as languages, literature, and history (as contrasted with scientific and technical subjects).
