You have successfully passed your class 12 Board Exam, and basking in the glory of your result. Suddenly, you start wondering ‘now what?’ Your exam pressure is not there, but still you cannot relax, because you have to think and decide about your professional career now.

What stream can you choose after 12th class

What to do after 12th is a very important and frightening question in the minds of thousands of students. There are several courses after 12th that you can attend; it can be engineering, medical, commerce, literature, pharmacy, fashion designing, hotel management, NDA, and many others. If you already know where your passion and talent are, you are sorted. However, for others we are providing an after 12th courses list which is not at all exhaustive:

  • The most common course is the Bachelor of Science/Arts/Commerce according to the subjects you had during 11-12th.

  • Engineering is another very popular choice among students with PCB. You have to appear for entrance exam and secure good rank to study your preferred branch of engineering.

  • If you had Biology during in 11-12th, you could go for medical or dental sciences. Ayurveda, veterinary, pharmaceutical science, homeopathy etc are a few of other choices with subject combination of PCB during 12th.

  • For commerce students B.Com, B.Com LLB, Bachelor in Business Administration, Bachelor in Business Economics are some of the courses.

  • Humanities students can go for Bachelor degree of a choice of subject, or other professional courses like Journalism, Mass Communication etc.

  • There are many vocational courses available too. Such as, Hotel management, Fashion Technology, Film and Media Technology, Designing courses, travel and tourism courses, cosmetology, beauty courses, BA in vocational human resource management, B.A in vocational marketing management, etc.

  • Students from science stream can also apply for Indian Army, Indian Navy, or Indian Air Force through National Defence Academy. The entrance test of NDA is held twice every year.

  • There are several diploma courses to choose from too. They are dress designing courses, drawing and painting courses, cutting and tailoring courses, web designing, graphic designing, textile designing, film arts and audio-visual editing, hospital and healthcare management, mass media and creative writing, air-hostess training, foreign language courses etc.

While these are a few of the best courses available after 12th, students should look for other opportunities also. Most of the reputed colleges take admissions through some good level of entrance tests.Students should be prepared for these test. Undoubtedly, students from science stream have lot more career options open from them. After 12th, a science student choose to study a humanities subject, but same is not true for a humanities student.

If you are not sure which course is the best fit for you, hold a discussion with a career counselor, who will analyse your talent profile and guide you accordingly.
