There are different streams available after 10th of which most common are Arts (Humanities), Commerce and Science. Some may prefer vocational courses but the here we have major three streams in which you can go further and set in a career. Yours is a query that asks only about the Commerce and Science from which one has to be preferred. The remaining one that is Arts/Humanities is a stream in which preferably study the subjects like, Economics, History, Sociology, Administration, etc.
We often come across the saying that only talented and genius students go for Science stream after their 10th as there is a preset consideration that the Science is a difficult stream. Yes, we can say in that way that the Science is somewhat difficult with complexities if compared to the other streams but it is totally wrong that it has only been preferred by a very few talented and genius students. Every student who is ready to take effort can opt for Science stream. In the science stream, you will have been studying various subjects like Physics, Chemistry, Mathematics and Biology. In India, we have Physics and Chemistry as compulsory subjects and you can choose one as a third compulsory subject from the Mathematics and Biology as choosing between these two has great importance. If you choose Biology then you will be in the career field like Medical, Bio-technology, Agricultural Bio-technology, Geology, Zoology, Forensic Science, Microbiology and Food Technology etc. If you choose Mathematics then you would land in Engineering and Technology field. Apart from this discussed majors, you have an option to go for plain science degree where comes the B.Sc. and M.Sc. thereby you can opt for the particular subject in Science stream and excel in it.
The technological development and the innovations is a new hallmark of the world today. The science stream will give you more opportunities to prosper.
Commerce is a stream which has been considered as the ladder to a corporate and business world. The subjects taught in the stream have a direct relation with the finance and economic aspects. Economics and Accountancy which are among the subjects taught here will lead you toward the profession such as CA-Chartered Accountant, CS-Company Secretary, CFA-Charter Financial Analyst, as an Economist, and so on. The very business world is dependent on finance which is critical to every business the world over and the commerce will obviously take you to these lucrative professions. Generally, after 10th students have to prefer the stream for their Higher Secondary Education and Commerce is one of the streams to be opted for. Going forward in the Commerce stream there will be Bachelor degree and Master Degree in Commerce and even you can do research oriented doctorates. There are many professional courses like CA, Cs, CFA, etc.
As we have already discussed, the career in Commerce and Economic field is the opportunity to become the part of the businesses at its core because without finance there nothing will happen and you will be at the helm to manage it.
Arts stream offers numerous career options and opportunities to students. It is a very traditional stream. This is one of the main reasons why this stream still has got takers in India! Arts stream is very diverse. This fact is evident from the studies involved in this stream. It covers wide variety of studies such as- visual arts (painting, sculpting, drawing etc), performing arts (music, dance, drama etc), literary arts (languages, literature, philosophy etc), history, law, humanities subjects, geography, political science etc.
There’s a misconception regarding this stream among Indian students and parents. Many of them think that arts stream is only taken by students who are academically dull. Well, this fact is false! There exists many challenging subjects in this stream too, and it takes certain aptitude to perform well in its exams too! It is very much possible to build a rewarding career after pursuing science stream at PUC level! In fact, many subjects present in arts stream will help one prepare well for Civil Services examination.
There are four main education boards available in India. Students may choose a board that suits them best. The choice shall be made on the basis of difficulty level associated with the boards and aptitude of the student. The names of the education board’s are-CBSE (Central Board of Secondary Education)
Some of the important subjects present in 11th and 12th Arts stream schooling are-
Note: Not all the subjects have been mentioned above. Many of the above mentioned subjects fall under the ‘optional subject’ category. Students have to select optional courses and form a ‘course combination’ to pursue throughout 11th and 12th. Professional courses after 12th and career, to an extent, depends upon this course combination.
