Default 'What should I do after Class XII?'

'What should I do after Class XII?'

The Class X and XII results are out and after a long vacation students now have to decide what course to opt for.

Will is be Science or Arts? What stream offers the best careers?
How should you decide what stream or subject best suits your abilities?
What are the education options available post Class XII?

Ajit asked, My daughter has done Diploma in Commercial Arts & 12th in Vocational Marketing. I would like her to pursue BA in Advertising. She insists that she would like to do BMM. Kindly give your advice. Regards

Tunvey Gogia answers, Hi Ajit, Since she has already spent a year doing commercial art, my first recommendation would be to pursue BA in advertising or any other course in advertising.

If she enjoys the arts, she could also pursue commercial art further, or find a job as a designer (graphic or otherwise). Since she seems keen on marketing, she could even look at a career in packaging design, which incorporates marketing and commercial art.

ingit asked, i have passed XII with commerce, want to do c.a but my father insist me for c.s.

Tunvey Gogia answers, Hey Ingit, CA and CS are very diverse and different courses, even though they offer an exemption to some papers, if you have already done one of them, and want to pursue the other. Even the career graph they offer is different from each other. Having said that, many CAs choose to also do the CS, and vice-versa. There are many lawyers who also pursue the CS. The CA and CS require different s**** sets. Largely the CA is all about numbers �� The Company Secretary course is more about setting up and dissolution of large companies and corporations. So, there is more in common between law and CS, than CA and CS. Before you decide, do some research to find out which suits your abilities and interests, better.

Zimmel asked, I am an Arts student - with a view od doing MBA in the future which would be a better option BA with Eco/Stats or BMS. What is the scope for Economics other than MA

Tunvey Gogia answers, Hey Zimmel, definitely BA with economics is a better bet. Statistics also is a better option than BMS. I say this for two reasons: 1. It opens up more options for the future because the MBA is always an add-on, and economics or stats offers you an area of specialization that you could pursue later separately.

2. BMS is not a bad course but you will end up repeating many of the subjects in MBA and it narrows down your options. Having said all of the above, I hope maths is a subject that you have and enjoy, because you can't do eco/ stats sans it. After economics you can do everything like an MBA that you could after a B Com or BMS.

Anmol asked, Hi. I would like to know about the the difference between B.E and B.Tech?

Tunvey Gogia answers, Hi Anmol, BE and B Tech are essentially the same degree. The names may differ depending on what universities offer the course. There may also be a very slight difference in the course curriculum. There are many ways to pursue a career in technology including a B Sc degree. For more details, check out

PRAVEEN asked, My son who is studying in Class 12th Commerce. He got 74% in 11th. Please suggest best course for him. His interest in Managment side.

Tunvey Gogia answers, Hey Praveen, I am assuming your son has maths. Commerce with maths offers many options to students. The most obvious choice is being B Com Honors or BA Economics, followed by an MBA. You say he's interested in management- if he truly is then BBM could also be a good choice. However, BBM restricts future options of for careers other than management. So, you need to be sure before pursuing a BBM. I would suggest you son undergo some kind of aptitude test. He should also make a list of reasons why he wants to pursue management.
sheerjeel asked, With a 50% aggegate and an interest in Maths, what future do you think should I forsee for my nephew.

Tunvey Gogia answers, Hey Sheejeel, an interest in maths is great. But interest needs to be complemented by aptitude, too. With maths as a core subject, the options for careers are many.

I would suggest he look at doing a BA in maths, rather than a BSc, though some universities started offering an integrated programme in maths honors, for science as well as non-science students.

If he is a true beleiver in the subject, he will do well provided he understands his limitations and works hard to overcome them. Good luck to him!

kanchan asked, HiTunvI am an Science student I am very much interested in computer I got 80% in hsc What options you suggest to me

unvey Gogia answers, Hi anup, Disaster manegement is a career that will have great potential in the futre but current ly there are very few places offering courses...you may need to study abroad.

A lot of you have asked about animation as a career option and I would like to say that it is one with great potential. Many colleges are offering courses after 12th. Though the trend to do vocational studies after school is increasing,

I would only reccomend this route if you are absolutely sure that animation is the career for you. The reason I say this that if you are unsure, doing a course after 12th will limit your options, later. As far as your niece is concerned...if you are unsure please do graduation before.

Kanchi asked, Hello Tunvey! Can you tell me is there an entrance exam for English honours in st. stephens? and i have secured 66% in non medical.What courses can I apply for in DU?

Tunvey Gogia answers, Yes as far as I remember there is an entrance exam for english as well as an inetrview. With science subjects you can apply for almost all the courses in DU but will have to take a beating on your percentage if you apply for non-science subjects. Look at someother options on the careerwise site as you may have trouble finding a course in DU with 66%

xx asked, My daughter shows interested in medicine and she is topper in the subjects. what is your advise for girls doing medicine.

Tunvey Gogia answers, Well my advise would be the same for boys and girls and that would be to choose a specialisation with care. The specialisation should be based on interest as well as the kind of lifestyle they want to lead...like emergency doctors, OBGYN, etc are on call 24/7 whereas some other areas offer a slightly easier work envirenment.

ravinder asked, hi tunvey pl tell me options after class 10th

Tunvey Gogia answers, Hi, there are many options. Do some research online to try and find out what you truly like.
