What are the Best Career Options after 12th Science?

The relationship between students and exams is like Ross and Rachel from the F.R.I.E.N.D.S. sitcom. The former always says to the latter, ‘We were on a break!’

This ‘break’ at different stages of the education is served differently for all of the students.

If we ask a pre-primary, primary, or middle stage student about what they will do after their final exams, their answer would be simple and clear, ‘will enjoy the summer breaks!’ They have a simple agenda, and that is to enjoy their vacations. From learning a new hobby to going on a trip with family, they plan everything since the commencement of the exam time.

But, if we ask a secondary or a senior-secondary student about what they will do after their Board Exams, they are a bit apprehensive in answering it.

What after the 12th?

If you are a secondary or senior-secondary student, then you must be aware of this question. You have either heard it from your annoying relatives or your parents and teachers. It might happen that you have given your 12th board, and now you are stuck in your deep imagination, what to pursue after the 12th?

If you are also struggling to find answers, then don’t worry!

In this blog, we have covered a list of the best career options after 12th Science. This blog will give you answers during your mental breakdown and can open new portals of opportunities.

1. Categorize your interest

If you have opted for Science after 10th or have given 12th Boards, then you must categorize what field you have a strong command for? Some students go for PCM (Physics, Chemistry, Math), and some for PCB (Physics, Chemistry, Biology). But, we have also seen a category where students have tried their hands in both the streams together.

Before selecting from the options, first, categorize what suits your interest. If you are proficient in Math, then taking a degree in it will be beneficial for you. If you are a Biology lover, then various options are available for the same. And the same thing goes for Computer Science and other Science-related subjects. Start by going after your interest.
