There are many good choices you can pursue after 12th science.

As you have mentioned, you have opted for english, physics, computer sciences, physical education as subjects, following are the streams you can choose for your career:

- BE (Bachelor's of Engineering)

- B.Sc with Electronics/IT/Computer Science (Bachelors of Science)

- BCA (Bachelors of Computer Education)

There are many other options too but the above three fields have good scopes too in the future. You can opt for the one you are more interested.

You do have quite a few options available. In the engineering field itself you can choose between various streams like IT, Computer science etc. You can go in for B.Sc too. In this there are options other than the normal Physics and Chemistry you can go for Bioinformatics, Biotechnology etc. You need to decide which area interests you to take a decision.

COURSES AFTER 12TH GRADE


As you are PCM student, you can make your future by selecting any of 2 different streams which are..

-> Engineering.

-> Arts & Science.


Now to select among this 2 streams it deeply depends upon your interest, if you feel you like you want to study more of subjects like computers, electrical, mechanical, civil etc. then its better to take engineering ie. B.Tech.

-> If you are interested in more of the Arts subjects then its better to go for BCA, BBA etc.

POINTS TO NOTE :

-> Being a PCM student in 12th grade its highly recommended that you go with engineering course, because you can shine well in your future.

-> Some of the major engineering courses are Computer Science, Electronics and Communication, Mechanical, Civil, Electrical and Electronics, BioTechnology, Electrical and Instrumentation Engineering. Just select any one of these which as good scope in future based on your INTEREST.

-> Guess you must in your end of 12th final exam. Just choose the course wisely.. Any more help about courses we are here to help you out

There is a lot of opportunity for Science stream students.
The students will select in two ways.One is Engineering and other one is degree course.
The Engineering course like Mechanical,Electrical,Electronics and civil Engineering.
Degree course like B.sc(computer),Bca,B.sc(maths),
B.sc(Biochemistry).Like many course available now.But the choice is yours.

Listen Shivali! You can go for a heap of courses. Since you don't have Biology, the medical stream is invalid.
But, on the contrary you can opt for the following:
1. BCA, MCA
2. BE, ME (Bachelor and Master of Engineering)
3. B. Sc. and M. Sc. (if you like) in any one of your desired sujects: Physics, Chemistry or Mathematics.
You see there a lot of courses you can pursue. So it depends upon you.
Wish you luck.

All the three streams(Arts, commerce and science) are good..

I will suggest you to go with your interest.

But if have interest in science, then take science...you have a really good marks in 10th.

My suggestion is to go B.sc in biotechnology or microbiology or botany or zoology...as per your interest.
