  • She can opt for B.A., with literature as one of the group subjects. As she is interested in literature definitely she can do a better performance there. In the group, there will be 3 subjects. One can be literature, the second subject can be social Service and the 3rd subject she has to select based on the combinations available. Once she completes B.A (Lit) she can go for MA(LiT). Then she will have very good chances to become a lecturer in any good college. While working as a lecturer she can go for PhD on a part-time basis and she will have very good chances to become a professor.
    If she is not interested in PG, she can go for B.Ed after which she can join as a teacher in any government school. This will help her to improve her interest in literature.
    Alternatively, after completing her BA she can go for civil services choosing literature as one of the subjects.
    After BA she can also try for various bank openings with her qualification.
