Oct 19, 2015 12:28 IST

    Choosing the right career is important for every student, irrespective of gender and background. In any country or education setup, students are offered a generalized curriculum up to a certain age and after that they need to pick their area or stream of specialization. For most education systems, this time comes after the 10th grade. Students choose their favorite stream, humanities, science or commerce. This selection however is tedious and most students are not certain about choosing the right path for career. Even parents sometimes do not know or have the expertise on how to guide their kids to choosing the right stream, and whether or not science is the right subject to opt for!

    Why opt for science stream?

    A lot of students opt for science stream after passing out of 10th grade and that is not without reasons. Whether you specialize in physics, biology or chemistry, career avenues are aplenty. In each of the science subjects you can find sub sections like microbiology, astrophysics, etc. As a result, students can get into diverse job sectors after completing their education.

    Understanding feasibility of science subjects post 10th grade

    While a career in science subjects can be pretty rewarding, the same thing cannot be viable for every student. It is necessary to analyse relevant factors, before opting for a science subject at this juncture of career.

    The below listed factors should be taken into account by student standing at this phase in his or her career:

    • Those students who have a keen interest in learning about natural events and secrets behind environmental factors, aspect of life-science may be suited for them.
    • Students with strong analytical and reasoning skills tend to do well in science stream. While not everyone will be great at maths, a decent score and aptitude in maths does help the students for higher studies.
    • People with a penchant for innovative thoughts and exploration can also excel in science streams, more so in biology related topics.

    One advantage of taking science stream after 10th is that you can always get into other streams afterwards. There are examples of science students getting into literature or language related studies in future.

    When you should opt for other streams

    There are some students who are unsure about what career to unsure after the 10th grade. Peer pressure and parental pressure often makes them land up in science stream even if they have no penchant for science subjects. If you are not keen on the nuances of chemistry or animal life, pursuing career in science may be tedious for you. In fact, it can worsen your career prospects in the long run.

    There is no reason to think that by choosing a degree in language or literature you career will be limited. Sure, science subjects open up more options, but nowadays students pursuing humanities are also getting newer career options.

    If you are unsure about what career you should choose after the 10th grade, get in touch with a professional career counsellor.
