Hello Vishal, 

Looks like a dillema for you at the moment.

As far as choosing a career, I strongly suggest choose on the basis of where your interest lies, your aptitude or ability rather than choosing on the basis of your percentage or friends or family.

I would suggest an open communication, between you and your parents. Why they wish you study math and why you wish to study humanities?.

At the sametime you could opt for a aptitude test or career counseling which would highlight your potentials and help you and family to make a choice.

As an add on, please note there are colleges that provides Math as a subject to the ARTS student. But you need not opt for this if you are not interested as well as if it does not reflect as your strength in the aptitude test.

Hope this helps.

Wish you good luck...

Dear Aspirant,

Definitely, academic performance and command should be considered for future career decision making, but that should not be the only criterion. This is where many students and parents make a mistake while deciding a course. 

Your interest in Humanities should not be at all neglected. With Maths and humanities as a combination you can get a good career in life. 

I feel, that if you are sure that though you have maths competence you should convince your parents about your interest. It is important that we choose what we love and not just based on the basis of mental acumen.

Please take the Ideal Career Test from CareerGuide.com.  This is a psychometric test which will test your acumen, interests, likings, dislikes, innate abilities, etc. The result is instant and you can show that to your parents. If your interest is in Humanities and acumen is supportive, definitely the test will suggest a suitable career according to your liking.

You may speak to me later on phone to discuss and I can also speak to your parents.

Best wishes
