Courses After 12th Science

The biggest reason most of us take Science in 12th is because we are told ‘It has a lot of Scope’. And yes, those people are right, but with a lot of options comes a lot of confusion. Class 12th is a crucial juncture in every student’s life. It is the last straw to the years of schooling and a just one step away from joining the world of colleges and Universities. Class 12th starts as a door to many new opportunities and a chance to pursue multidisciplinary courses spanning the Science, Arts, and Commerce stream. With several options to study and build a career in science, either in BiPC subjects [Biology, Physics, Chemistry], or MPC subjects [Maths, Physics, and Chemistry], or for the ultra intelligent PCMB subjects [Physics. Chemistry, Biology, Mathematics] the Science stream has been one of the most popular choices amongst scores of students. But once you are ready to take your final board exams, you need to ask the new question, what to do after 12th science? So, if you are exploring opportunities after 12th, then here is a blog in which we have collated a list of courses after 12th Science for you to consider.
