How to decide if Science Stream is good for you after 10th Grade?

Right from 10th grade, pressure starts building up on the student as to which stream is better for higher education. The moment of making a choice comes after 10th grade examinations. This is the ideal time for a student to evaluate his skills and choose the right stream. The three main streams that can be pursued for 12th grade are: 

  • Science
  • Commerce
  • Arts/humanities
Each stream is associated with various subjects. While commerce stream covers subjects such as economics, accounts, organization of commerce and mathematics; science has physics, chemistry, biology, mathematics, etc. On the other hand, arts and humanities include history, geography, psychology, sociology, English, and so on.

As per a general trend most students opt for science due to numerous opportunities in the field. Nevertheless, science is a sophisticated and complex field and requires excellent logical reasoning and critical thinking ability. Here are a couple of guidelines that might help you decide if science is the right choice.

  • It basically depends on your preferences. If you are a person who is interested in learning about the secrets behind natural phenomena, science is the right field for you.
  • If you like to troubleshoot, and find solutions to technical problems, science would be interesting for you to study.
  • If you are interested in scientific research in a laboratory setup, the field of science offers you opportunities to conduct experiments in labs and help you grow as a scientist.
  • In case you wish to have more options and opportunities at the end of your 12th grade, science may be a good choice. Students taking science can end up in medical, engineering as well as in research facilities.
Another advantage with choosing science is that students can shift to commerce or arts after 12th grade.
