Dear Applicant,
First of all do not loose hope after looking at your marks. Now the results are declared so you have to choose your future steps wisely. If you are not satisfied with your marks and believe that you should have obtained higher marks instead, I would suggest you to go for rechecking. And if you believe that your marks are based on performance than I would suggest you to reappear in the examinations.
But if you do not want to repeat you may opt any distance learning courses at few of the open universities like IGNOU, Annamalai, National open university and Algappa Univ. etc. And if you can afford, you may also opt for few of the private universities as the cutoff marks for admissions to these universities are comparatively lower.
Besides this you may opt fine arts subject if you are interested. In fine arts your marks doesn't really matter in admission process.
But the best option is to join a course in some open university or private college, that will help you to save your precise one year. And side by side you may also reappear for your 12th examinations. The reason being, that all sorts of jobs whether it is private or government they required at least 55% and in some cases 60% cut-off marks to appear for their selection process.
I wish you all the best for your future career and hope that you will choose right path for you.
Best Wishes.

Dear Shraddha,


Thanks for approaching CareerGuide.com for seeking guidance and help in your further career decision making.

I personally feel that scoring 50% in science is a very low score compared to the lot of scoring questions in the subjects. I feel, that science is not made for you for a career. I am saying this not to discourage you, but to save from the future frustration and depression if you choose science and dont get successful and may be dont like what you have choosen as a career.

Wrong career choice can land you in high trouble and then at that time it will be a total waste of money, time and energy in the field you are not atall interested in.

Shraddha, I would suggest you to go for Commerce or Arts based on your marks in 12th. Yes, I am suggesting you to leave science stream and opt for another stream. I am saying this based on your emotional level of studies which are reflected in your marks which are low as compared to the cut offs.

I would suggest you to as early as possible for a psychometric test which is also available with CareerGuide.com. This test is not a psychatrist test, but a emotional and aptitude test. There are number of questions in the test, which you need to answer very honestly. This test will let you know your real capabiilties, skills, likings, interests, passion and aptitude.

It is proven fact that if one chooses a career based on the real capabilities, skills, likings, interests, then you can become successful definitely, since you are doing what you know and can do the best. Doing the best as per your capabiility will definitely give you best results and you will never feel frustrated or disappointed.

Even if you choose BSc in Mumbai, what after that is also the question, the answer to which you need to think about now itself. Just with BSc you wont be able to get an good job and salary. Therefore doing a masters will be necessary. If you are not a Science inclined student, then doing MSc will be tough for you. This will then and may result in frustration and depression.

Please do think on this seriously.

Best wishes,

Dr. Anand Wadadekar
