CAREERS AFTER 10th

In India, the students have many career paths to choose from. Here’s the list of the following streams the students can opt from:

  • ARTS/HUMANITIES
  • COMMERCE
  • SCIENCE

Science

Science can be defined as a systematic study and investigation of natural phenomena and occurrences by way of observation, theoretical explanation as well as experimentation. A scientific study of any phenomena involves careful observation, formulation of hypotheses, conducting experiments to test and prove the hypotheses and henceforth drawing conclusions that confirm or deny the hypothetical assumption. Such scientific studies help in the formulation of universal laws that help humans to know more about the world we live in and how various natural processes and phenomena occur.

Science is a vast field and concerns almost everything that our eyes can see or cannot see. Everything in the universe can be studied under the field of science. Talking at a basic educational level, science can be divided into three broad subjects – Physics, Chemistry and Biology.

The major subjects covered under the Science stream are:

  • Physics
  • Chemistry
  • Biology
  • English
  • Mathematics
  • Biotechnology
  • Computer Science
Combinations as: P.C.M.B, P.C.M.C, P.C.M.E, P.C.M.G, P.C.B.H, P.C.B.E, P.C.M.S, P.C.M.H, C.B.H.S, C.B.H.Cs, P.M.E.Cs, P.C.B.Cs,

Arts/Humanities

Defining humanities is a difficult task. However, it can be said in a few words that it is an academic discipline which deals with the study of the ‘Human Condition’, utilizing methodologies that are usually analytical, critical or speculative.

The wide range of subjects that come under the umbrella term of Humanities range from history, languages, literature, law, philosophy, religion, performing arts, anthropology, communication, sociology, psychology and many more.

Choosing the Humanities stream after Class 10 would enable a student to choose a career from a range spanning a wide area. Subjects that are available for study in the CBSE class 11 syllabus are History, Geography, Political Science, Psychology, Sociology, English, Hindi and Sanskrit.

The major subjects covered under the Arts stream are:

  • History

Commerce

The commerce stream after completion of Class 10 is quite a popular choice in India, as most students feel that the stream offers them a wide arena of career options to pursue after class 12, that would bring them both success as well as financial security easily. However, what most students do not realize is that just as is the case with the science stream, a student also needs to have a certain aptitude for commerce to be completely successful in it.

Some students may choose the Commerce stream for this reason. However, it is a fact that if they have a mind that is more suited to a career in the Humanities stream, or even the Science stream, they would find it hard to survive and perform well in Commerce.

The major subjects covered under the Commerce stream are:

  • Accountancy
  • Economics
  • Business Studies
  • Economics
  • Mathematics
  • Informatics Practices
  • English
Combinations As: SEBA, ABEM, BSAM, EBAC, HEBA, GEBA, BACS, ABPE
