Selecting a stream after 10th requires a lot of brainstorming and critical thinking.
To successfully select a stream of your choice follow these steps:
Select a stream you think is right for YOU. Not your parents, not your neighbors- but you. And if you select a stream and realize it isn’t for you- don’t panic. Most schools give you an option to switch streams by submitting applications before a stipulated time. Here is a brief description of the streams available for a little help:
This is a crucial time in everyone’s life. The decisions you make now make your future. So make sure you take each step carefully, logically and most importantly, to YOUR benefit.
First, reflect on the last two years of your education. 11th and 12th grade decide a lot of things.
Do an in-depth analysis of you strengths, weaknesses and pressure points. This will give you a strong insight into what is good for you. Do an opportunity analysis of your stream by assessing all the course options available for you and find the one that suits you best. It could be something other than Engineering, CA or Medicine. Don’t go with the crowd. The key here is to find a course that fulfils your purpose, not the other 8.2 million youth of the Country.

After completing a Bachelors degree, a lot of options are opened. The two main choices in front of you are- to continue education and get a Masters degree or to get a job. While getting a job after graduation is a good idea, sometimes a further study of your subjects may open a lot more avenues in the future.
Before selecting either of the options, do a careful analysis of your subjects and ask the following questions: “Do I really need a job immediately?” “Do I truly enjoy my subjects and want to study further?” “Does my career require further knowledge or a specific qualification?” If you are passionate about your subjects or require that extra qualification- great. Go ahead get that Master’s degree. But if you are going for Masters because it buys you another year or two in School, you might want to reconsider. Master’s degree is expensive and a lot of them, if not from top tier schools- are worthless.
If you think your campus placement after graduation isn’t up to the mark, relax. Accept this is where you start. It is okay to not be placed as the CEO of a multi-billion corporation. Alternatively, here is a list of all courses and degrees that can be pursued after graduation:
