of aptitude  when coupled with guidance in the right direction to pick up a deFinite  Stream helps one in choosing the right Career Option.

So from the very beginning a student should be Careful in making choice of their Stream.
As soon as a student reaches 10th standard, some kind of pressure of  choosing a Career path linger in their mind. 

Because by then they are at  the edge of completing their school life and it is peak time to choose  ones Career path than ever before.

What are the Career Options are there After 10th Class Career Guidance After 10th Every year, Lot of students we see (almost 20–25% ) who are not actually capable of joining Science Stream still joins it and ending up wasting two important years of their life being failed or loose faith and confidence. Your life may not over by there but I want to convey that you life is important so don’t just 
waste your time.

Choose it only if you have truly interest in it. If you liked Science subject in your 10th and you are getting good Marks or you may have a lot of interest regarding Science then you 
are encouraged to join it.

But If you are not fulfilling any points stated above and still joining Science just because, your friends are joining it and you think that it will be better for you if you remain in your old friend circle then my dear friend I request you to change your mind set. You will make new friends anywhere you go. Your old friends will not be with you forever.

Get a comprehensive knowledge about the available Streams and then introspect yourself with respect to each field. This will help you decide the right Stream for yourself.

The Science Stream:

The Science Stream is often preferred by those who are aspiring to pursue professional courses after 12th. The primary subjects in Science Stream are Physics, Chemistry, Biology, Mathematics and Computer Science. Among other subjects, 

English is compulsory while the other language subject is left for choice. There are also practical labs along with theory, which calls for a lot of hard work for students in this Stream.

But, for your help here are the different Streams rather than Science:

Commerce Stream:

Commerce Stream is another good Option after 10th standard. If you are the one having strong mathematics and analytical abilities, then, Commerce would be the best choice for you.

Humanities / Arts Stream:

Humanities, Commonly known as the arts Stream, holds the widest scope of opportunities for students. While History, 
Geography, Political Science, and English are the core subjects, you can choose from a wide array of elective subject combinations, which include Economics, Psychology, Fine 
Arts, Sociology, Physical Education, literature subjects, etc.

First Stream is the Science Stream. You will study Biology (Botany, Zoology); Physics, Chemistry and Maths as your Major subjects here. It is mainly focused on students who want to study MBBS, BDS, and other Science degrees like Biotechnology, Microbiology, Physics, Chemistry, Molecular biology, Bio chemistry and so on. As you are choosing Maths, you can also aim to study BSc Maths or statistics.

Next is the computer Science Stream. Students study in this Stream only to become Computer Engineers in future. They aspire working for IT sector that involves IBM, TCS, WIPRO, CTS and Infosys as Software engineers. If you want a Career in computer programming, coding, testing; then you can 
choose computer Science Stream.

Lastly Economics, Accounts, Commerce, Business maths comes. If you are good with Maths, you can choose this  Stream. Studying in this Stream you can pursue BA Economics, Bachelor of Commerce and so on. After your 

Bachelors, you can consider doing a CA (Chartered AcCountant) or MCom or MA Economics.

If you are still unsure what interests you, you can think of your 10th standard scores. In which subject did you score high in 10th and which subject you liked the most in 10th? See if that subject falls in Stream 1 or 2 or 3. Then understand the subject Stream and select the Stream accordingly. Its simple as that. If you want to study in a relaxed way, you can ignore the first Stream 'Biology'. It is mainly for students aiming to become Doctors. If you have interest in English, you can choose the 
third Stream and then join a college for BA English. You should check yourself what subject you like as of now, and with this 
subject what could you be in future. I am sure you could do this self analysis and please don't forget to use the personality test on this site. It will be of a great help to you. All the very best. 

Listen to your heart and mind: Decide what are your Strengths, weaknesses, short term goals, ambitions and your favorite subjects that you have excelled in. Analyze your aptitude and ask yourself questions like : 
Q. Do I like maths ? 
Q. Was I comfortable both in theoretical/ numerical Science ? 
Q. Did I like History or got bored of it and never really gave a 

f**k about kings/queens/civilization and all ? 
These questions will make you self aware and help to shortlist 

what subjects you liked in 9/10th grade.
Approach you Teachers : Teachers understand a student more 

than a parent can, as they are not really biased about the kid. 

They have knowledge about the rigour of curriculum that will be 

followed in Senior SEcondary school and can tell which 

subjects you will face problems in and which subjects will be a 

cake-walk for you.
Approach your Seniors : Talk to your seniors whom you know 

well and ask them what would be right for you. Tell them about 

your interests and scores in 9/10th Grade. They will be well 

aware about the rigour of 11th grade and courses that are 

involved and will help you to take an informed decision.
After all this, if you still have an iota of doubt then reach out to 

your Parents, their thoughts might have a bit of bias as they 

want you to do well and they might have seen Students taking 

Science and being successful in their Career but there are a 

many unheard failure stories too. So tell them whatever you 

really dream to be and follow your heart and passion, your 

parents will deFinitely support you.

Remember the days when you wanted to be something and dreamed about that all night, made up a story in your dreams 

and its time now you chase them. You might fall, fail, breakdown or may think of giving up on Stream you decided, but always remember to discuss it with your teachers and parents.

The following are the steps that you need to take for choosing 

the right Stream after 10th class:

Someone has rightly said that well begun is half done. The first 

and foremost step to choosing the right Stream after 10th class
