MORE than one crore students sit for their 10+2 examination each year across India. Of these just over 15% get an opportunity to go for higher studies. And their choices have been uniform from time immemorial. The best go for MBBS. The next best to IITs for B.Techs. Others move into engineering. And the rest would do BA/B.Sc/BCom, unless one is talking about St.Stephen’s in Delhi where the best of the best try to enter.
However, there are many more options one choose, besides the usual suspects. For instance creative students could opt for design, fine arts or visual communication. If you are good with numbers, you can explore Charted Accountancy. If you aspire to be a top chef, you have hotel management. Allied medical science such as physiotherapy, have a demand in the heath care sector. Even a field like forensic sciences, needs skilled professionals.
So if you did not make the cut for Medicine do not worry. An integrated MSc in Nanomedicine would be as good if not a better career option for you. We list out the most popular ones in the following pages, along with a list of unique courses. Choose well!
