Career After 10th Standard

Discussion about the career of students after 10th class with respect to selecting the group and college in intermediate.

Well most of the students who have finished their 10th standard from various boards will be in dilemma about which group to choose in their intermediate. One thing is that we need to choose a proper group as this is going to decide our future and once a decision is taken, we cannot look back in our life. Don't look at the individual subject marks of 10th standard to decide your group. Select group based on your interest and don't bother even if you get less in that subject in 10th standard, because it is sometimes possible that a student might get less marks even though he sounds well in that subject.

Selection of Group in Intermediate:

Students who are interested in mathematics can either opt for MPC-Mathematics, Physics and Chemistry or MEC-Mathematics, Economics and Commerce. If a student has interest towards engineering side then he is supposed to opt MPC and he need to sound good in mathematics. If a student is interested towards B.Com and what to become a charted accountant then in that case he/she need to take MEC. This was the scenario till the last year, however the system changed from this year, even people from MPC background can apply for Charted Accountant. So in my opinion it is better to take MPC as you can enter into engineering field or as charted accountant, it is always better to have more number of options wide open. People who are interested in medicine need to take BPC-Biology, Physics and Chemistry as their group. People opting for BPC need to struggle a lot than any other group as the number of seats for medicine is very few and everyone aims for government seat as the fees are affordable at government colleges.

Selection of College in Intermediate:

A final conclusion to all the parents and students, intermediate is somewhat like deciding the student's future. So I advise that whichever group you take it is equally important that to you need to take a wise decision in selecting the college and don't go by the words of advertisements. One need to make sure that college provides excellent teaching with minimal stress on the student as health is also important. In advertisements we see that Narayana College has bagged many IIT seats, but think this in reality, the total number of students who study in various branches of Narayana College throughout the state are around one lakh students and of these only 80 to 100 ranks were baged by Narayna. What about the remaining students, this implies that only 0.1% has succeeded and remaining people failed to show good performance. Even if we think that they are only 10,000 students of those 1 lakh who have gone through IIT coaching even in that case it comes to 1%. On a scale of 100, 99 failed to put up good result. This is not a good equation. So select a college where the success percentage is higher than the failure percentage.

The toughest decision to be taken by a student is after the completion of the 10th class. The group selection at the intermediate level is vital for a student . The author has tried to explain which group is to be selected keeping in view the engineering, medicine and chartered accountant courses. There are umpteen number of options available to the students apart from the above mentioned courses.

The three year diploma courses in Polytechnics are a very good choice for those aspiring to start their life early. Unlike engineering, medicine and chartered accountancy courses, the diploma course can be completed in three years time. Diploma courses in engineering are the best option for those students who want to pursue their degree course in engineering. After the completion of the diploma course the student will have the option of either going for a job or higher studies. There is a lateral entry system for the diploma students in engineering colleges and the engineering course can be completed in three years time. Correspondence courses in engineering are also available to the diploma students in engineering subjects. The engineering degree can be completed while doing a job.

The Polytechnics apart from Diploma in Engineering courses offer a wide range of courses covering Pharmacy, Agriculture, Horticulture, Fashion Technology, Hotel Management and many more.Majority of these courses are job oriented and the student will have the option of going for a job or higher studies.

Vocational courses are also another good option. These courses provide vocational training to the students after which they can start earning by getting a job or setting up his own practice. The Government of India is offering Modular Employable Schemes(MES) through Industrial Training Institutes and some government organisations. The certificate is issued by the Directorate General of Employment and Training, Ministry of Labour and Employment, Government of India. These are skill development programmes of short duration to provide self employment.

In our country, most of the times, the students have to make their choice depending upon the economic condition of the family. This problem is sorted out to a great extent by the availability of bank loans, government scholarships. The very outlook of the students and parents has to change for making a right choice for the career of the students. The glamour for certain courses is landing the students and parents in trouble. The right choice has to be taken considering many factors like economic condition, interest of the student, prospects of getting a job after completion of the course.
