Top 10 courses to pursue for students after Plus 2

By Rinshi Ansari

The most frequently asked question among the current generation of students in the 12th standard is “What comes after the 12th?” The questions affect thousands of students each year, both in India and overseas. Regarding potential career paths, employment chances, and yes, even their passion and inclination, there is misunderstanding among them. Counselors claim that the absence of accurate information regarding the courses offered in India and their employment prospects is partially to blame. Students can choose between science, commerce, and the arts as appropriate post-secondary possibilities.

After 12th grade science, the most common courses are B.Tech, B.E, B.Sc, MBBS, and BDS. Students can choose from a number of commerce courses, including B.Com and BBA. The most popular course among students in the arts stream is the BA. In addition to this, all stream students have access to a number of UG courses following Class 12.

Some kids continue to argue with their parents over continuing to take the courses they are interested in after the 12th grade. However, parents want their children to pursue a job path that they have chosen for them. In light of this, we have included a list of high-paying post-12th-grade courses in all disciplines, including science, commerce, and the arts.

The decision to enrol in a course should always be highly inspiring for the students rather than being a convenient option. When choosing a degree to follow after their 12th grade education in India, students must take their interests, motivation, and ambitions into account. Engineering, Architecture, Design, Law, Applied Science, Business Studies, Management, Behavioral and social sciences, economics, media, humanities, and more prominent fields are available for students to pick from.

Following secondary school, students can use the list of courses in the three streams described below to make an intelligent decision that fits with their interests and career goals.
