With CBSE Class 12 results coming out by 26 May 2012, that one question which seems to be ringing bells for all students is , ‘what next?’ jagranjosh.com dons an investigative hat to understand the options available after Class 12th.
Every child has a gift embedded in him/her, this is what we have been hearing since the yesteryear’s. As a matter of fact, it is a true statement. It is imperative for a student to first sit for an aptitude test in order to understand what could be his line of education.
After sitting for the aptitude test, which is a norm with most schools, then a student could perhaps go ahead and think of electing a subject. Gone are those days when studying an ‘English Honours’ was considered to be a soft option. A cautionary warning for day dreamers : Opt for this subject, only if you are a creative mind, loves to read up, loves to critically analyze the readings and not to forget handle the back ground studies for each writer.
Similarly commerce options with or without Maths are very popular in colleges, students who are good with business studies, and accounts can take a green flag and race towards the course, and lets bust some myth here- Commerce studies doesn’t necessarily means a job in Banking or an account company, you could also become a KPO writer or a social network manager , provided you love what you want to do.
Also one of the courses that are highly popular is Psychology hons and Stats hons. Though these two courses follow the orthodox tenure of three years, they are considered to be ‘pseudo’ professional courses.
Amongst the other popular professional courses , are Hotel Management, The course makes one aware of the operating-sections of the hotel industry like front office, general operations, sales and marketing, food and beverage, service keeping and catering. Then we also have courses such as the Animation courses, Vocational courses and Language courses for the mind that loves to read different languages.
To throw some light, a student who decides to elect a language course, should in no way feel inferior, as language translators are hired with great vengeance these days. However, it is advisable to finish the basic graduation first and then game up for some language course.
Stream jumps are considered very normal, meaning that if you have studied science in your higher secondary, please feel free to elect a Sociology honours in College, because, a college degree helps you take a shape for the rest of your life. The only thing, don’t go for the college, aim for the subject.
Finally, Josh would like to say that it is always important for a student to understand, analyze and then act in order to lead a rewarding future career life. Josh wishes the students of Class 12 a very best for their future endeavors.
