Transition from grade 10 to 11 in India is considered to be very important as this is the time you have to give a serious thought about your future life and which profession you want to get into. Uptil now, your school and the board decided what you have to study. You were taught basics of everything – Science, Mathematics, English, Social Studies, etc. But after 10th, you have to make a decision of which subject you want to excel in. The decision of which subjects you want to study now will decide what career you will be pursuing in the future.
Do not worry if you are confused. Start exploring your options! Only a few people have a deep-seated passion, what we might term a ‘calling’, and will pursue that path single-mindedly. Others – in fact, I would argue most of us – have to work towards finding their area of interest.
There will be different streams consisting of different subjects, and each stream will lead to a different career path. If you are looking to understand what stream would be right for you, I would advise you to take a career profiler test like the one that Avanti.in has here: https://go.avanti.in/b3app
The Avanti Career Profiler test is based on famous Holland Code career test which asks you simple questions about your interests in different types of activities, analyses your personality and recommends career options based on your interest profile analysis. This test gives you Stream recommendation, analysis of streams you might find interesting based on your personality type and recommended careers based on which stream you choose.
The decision of which subject to choose is completely based on your interest. Do not be afraid to pick up something where you feel your true talents and interests lie. It is ultimately your life and hence your call.
Most of the students who opt for PCB or Physics-Chemistry-Biology combination generally go for MBBS/BDS degree after 12th. But that’s not the only career option you have. With new career opportunities arising everyday, there is a demand for skilled resources in every sector. For someone with PCB background, there are a number of career options he/she can pursue other than becoming doctor.
Here is a list of career options for students who opt for PCB as their stream of study:
