results of the class 12 exams of various state boards are coming out, the most
obvious question that students are faced with is what’s next?
If you think that
you have worked hard for class 12 and now rest of the life will be easy and
college will be fun-- you are in for a surprise! To put it bluntly, you haven’t
seen the ‘S’ of the word ‘Struggle’.
There is no
shortage of the options after class 12 if you have an open mind but given the
peer and the pressure of the neighbors, for most students, it is either
engineering or medical.
But, it is not
always right to listen and believe everything you are told because it is you
who will have to bear the burden of the course and face the exams. Hence, the
importance of making a right decision keeping your interests in mind.

list of courses which students can opt after completing their class 12. By no
means, this is an exhaustive list but will give you ample number of options
apart from engineering and medical fields. So dig in!
