Created on: June 1, 2018

As the Xth exam is already done and with the results coming out by the end of May, there’s the daunting task of choosing a stream; Science, Commerce or Arts. Making the right choice is no less than fighting a war, and essentially your whole career lies on this one decision. Hence, it gets even more complicated and critical as the right choice will shape your career into a successful one.

Still puzzled over what to choose and what’s best for you? Don’t worry; we are here to sort it out for you!
Firstly, the most important thing is to understand how to choose a stream suitable for you. Here’s a series of things you can before you come to a decision.

What stream excites you the most?

Are you a big fan of science or more of a storyteller? Or do you write poetry? Or are you more interested in understanding the evolution theory?

Have you ever pondered over what is your forte? It is imperative to understand whether you have enough interest in the subject that you take up. Your enthusiasm is the key to all these questions. A right decision will be driving force for your career. Ultimately, your passion matters.

What can be your prospective career options?

Any subject that you take up ultimately should lead to your career goal. So, before you jump to take up any stream of your choice, you need first to analyze all your prospective career paths. It’s not an easy job, but a hazy understanding of your career options can cost you. So, be calm and composed and take your time to decide.

But, then how about some help to decide?

Taking such an important decision can be terrifying so, a little advice would always be helpful. Ask opinion from your teachers, parents or professionals. You can even talk to career counsels to figure out what is the best thing for you. The career counsels are incredibly attentive and hear you out to understand your strengths. At the end of a session, they even provide you with a bunch of career options suitable for you.

As you decide to take up streams, you also need to keep in mind some other factors:

Peer pressure
You should build your own path and not follow your friends or even get influence by their decision. So, stop focusing on them and build your career and gain a better insight into your aptitude and interest.

Think beyond two years
You need to think beyond the two years; it’s your whole life. Don’t choose something to fulfill your short-term goals. It is important to note that whatever stream you want, it is going to impact your future in a big way.

Your decision today will affect your future. Hence, buck up and make your mind. Take charge!

A note to all parents!
Parents play an essential role in forming a student’s career from scratch.  Parents should help in the right decision for the best career option for their children. However, they should not impose their decision on their child and instead encourage them to follow their dream.
