I'm a class 12 student and my stream is PCM. But i don't wish to continue studying science or anything of that sort. I'm very creative and have a genuine interest in art and crafts. I have a thing for writing too. What should I go for after class 12th?

Dear Aspirant,

Ultimately, this means that you have wasted your whole two years in Science. Now that you have made up your mind a little late that you do not wish to continue with Science or related fields, then definitely you need to shift to Humanities / Arts stream for the degree course.

However, you need to check scientifically what you are good at in the humanities side and what are your real and genuine interests and likings. It is better to get those checked and proved scientifically.

Please take the Humanities Career Selector Test from CareerGuide.com. This is a specially designed psychometric test to assess your aptitude, interests, innate abilities for the arts career. Arts is a big field and there are also plenty of options for career. Therefore to avoid confusion and to choose the correct option, this test will help you understand yourself and which career is suitable to you. The report gets generated instantly and you may also choose to speak to me over phone through this system to discuss.

Best wishes

Hello Ananya, 

Good question asked. But before I answer your question, will ask you in the first place why did you opt for science stream?.

Never the less I do agree choice is yours. But before choosing a career make sure you wish to be in that chosen field itself. Thus self introspection after reading and researching on the careers especially skills demanded and matching your skills or potentials with the stream is essential.

If you still are confused, I would recommend an Aptitude test which would highlight your potentials and help you make a confirmed choice.

Coming to your career option. After 12th, you could choose from the following options:

1. B.Designing:  a 4 years bachelors program in designing. You could choose a specialization from fashion to interiors to automobile to space designing etc. Admission to this course is mainly through an entrance exam and student should have studied Math in 12th class.

2. B.Architecture: a 4 years under graduate course. Eligibility is entrance exam known as NATA. Math studied in 12th is a must. Specialization can be chosen only at the masters level. As an architect your main responsibility would be to build a rough structure based on the drawings of the designer.

3. BFA: a 3 years undergraduate course in fine arts. Some colleges conduct entrance exam. 

4. BMM: A 3 years undergraduate course in media. Eligibility is your 12th score. You could choose any specialization from advertising to journalism to public relations.

Mainly when thinking of creative fields these options are chosen.

Wish you good luck...

Hi Ananya,

This is a very valid question.First of all,you should have thought of your real interest  and comfortable subjects before taking PCM stream.If you are a creative and innovative the option like Fashion study/Arts are available to pursue in from Class-XI.However,in consideration to your interest and lapse of time occurred you may continue the stream with hard work and sincerity and appear entrance exam of NIFT/NID/College of Art etc. for professional studies fashion design,technology,arts etc.The Board exam.will not clash with open entrance exams.

You are welcome to contact me for any clarification.

Best wishes.

Hello Ananya

It’s good that you have realized your interest at a stage when you are going to choose a graduation course for career. You have interest in three things as mentioned in the question as art, crafts and writing. These three make you open for a long list of careers that includes

  • Content Writer
  • Journalist
  • Interior designer
  • Animator
  • Fashion designer
  • Jewellery designer
  • Photographer

The field of arts and crafts is very wide. Hence, it’s highly recommended to take a psychometric test. You may check the tests available on Careerguide portal. It will help you to take an informed decision depending on the skills and interests.
