Thanks for putting up your query to!

You said you are interested in Government jobs and you want to know which subject is best for graduation. It would be inappropriate if I just suggest you which subject is better for you without understanding your aptitude, interest and personality. Therefore, I recommend you to take Ideal Career Test from After taking up test, you may talk with career counselors at that will help you take informed career decision.

You said you want to do Government job. Getting Government job is competitive. I am sharing avenues for Government jobs for your reference:

Academics: As a teacher in school after doing BEd in your desired specialization. To become a teacher in college/University, you need to do masters and clarify National Eligibility Test for Assistant Professorship. For professorship, you need to do MPhil/PhD.
Defense Academy: You may give NDA exam and enter into Indian Army, Navy or Airforce.
Indian Railways: You may appear for National Test and join Indian Railways.
UPSC: You may give UPSC exam after your graduation. Upon passing UPSC, you may work as IAS/IPS/IFS officer with Government of India
Law: After clearing LLB, you can give exam for Judge and become District Judge. You can also become Government Lawyer/Public Solicitor.

Since you did not provide place you belong to and where do you prefer to study, it is difficult to suggest any college. Well, I am sharing different career options after 12th Science (PCM) for your reference.

i would value your suggestion and guidance .

Dear Aspirant,

At the first place, if you are not good at physics and maths and don't like them, why are you continuing in the Science stream? In Science stream you cannot avoid Maths.

I think you should shift to Arts/Humanities or Commerce stream and get graduated in management and commerce instead. (BA/BCom/BBM/BBA/BMS)

For govt jobs, any graduation is required. I would suggest you to take up Arts or Commerce.

Best wishes

Hi There,

I like your enthusiasm and your spirit.

Since you have mentioned, you would put in the right efforts and maintain hardwork, then my question is why are you avoiding Physics and chemistry.

Doing a B.Sc Computer science or IT, is good, whereby Math would be one of the main subject, as computers is mainly into algorithms and mind you its going to be hardcore Math.

Here my suggestion would be, when you are looking pout for government jobs, computers especially IT or software, it is more popular amongst the private groups or companies.

In terms of government jobs, I would highly recommend, Pharmacy.

Doing a B.Pharmacy, would help you join the Pharmacy company both private and government.

Pharmacy is a combination of PCM though more stress is on chemistry, since you need to know the chemical formulations used. But unless and until you enter the research field, in-depth chemical formulation is not necessary.

After Graduation in Pharmacy, knowledge on medicines, can help you join the industry as a Medical writer, or into the tablet and formulation department.
At the same time, having a Pharmacy certificate, makes you eligible to begin your own medical shop.

Please do think over this option and get back if any doubt.

Wish you good luck...............
