And your first step in this process should be to identify which subject or career option excites you. You can do something for it for the rest of your life and never be unhappy and dissatisfied with it, only then you can really enjoy it. So, no matter which stream you choose, first of all make sure you are under it Whether interested in the topics covered.

It is very important for students to analyze their strengths and weaknesses.

After assessing your interests, the second step for you is to assess your skills and abilities. If you choose one stream only on the basis of your interest but you do not have the right skill and ability to understand the subjects involved, then it will create a big problem for you in future. For example, you may be interested in primary science but science subjects taught at 12th level may seem more detailed and difficult. Suppose your basic arithmetic is very good but you may find maths taught in 12th PCM very difficult. So you will not be able to give better results in those subjects. Therefore, one should always do a complete analysis of his skills and abilities, understand his strengths and weaknesses and choose any stream according to his ability.

Students choose the right career option for themselves

Once you start identifying the things you are interested in, you are faced with so many and varied options, choosing all of which may not be the right decision. For example, suppose you love kite flying, but choosing it as a career option might not be a right decision.

Hence, you need to identify which of your interest areas can offer you good opportunities in which you can build a sustainable career. For this, you can take the help of a professional career counselor. They can help you analyze your skills and help you choose the right career option.

Students can also take help of others

Nowadays there are many other career options and opportunities are available in the market which are waiting for you after class 10th that you can opt for.
