This shows your state of confusion is more career oriented rather than just the choice of subjects. Very good of you to be planning the future at the right time. Since your teachers know you better and have advised you against Science , you can actually not opt for it. Even by your admission you are not the best at Science. Hard Work does pay off but skills are equally important. So it would rather be better to go in for Commerce stream where you have various courses and the field is really wide contrary to the general belief in the country.

Hi There,

GFood that, you know where your skills lie. But these skills that you are currently judging are based more on the marks / percentage you score in your subjects at the school level.

Here I would like to ask you,

  • Have you participated in any Interschool competition, in relation to science or math
  • Have you tried any experiment and failed???

Marks do not always help you make a decision.

  • Do you like to question?
  • Are you the Research type?
  • Do you ask a lot of questions?
  • Do you still have questions despite people trying to help you???

Do not make a judgment of a stream based on the questions above only.

These are questions for you to self introspect, that will throw light on your potentials which are not marks based.

Here I would advise you, post 10th, please take an Aptitude tests and a one to one session with a counselor understanding how potentials are directly linked to choosing and being successful in a career.

Please note that sometimes, students are unable to score, but excel in their fields and vice-versa too.

So best is to be sure and then make a choice.

Hope this helps.

Wish you good luck for 10th exams....

Dear Aspirant,

Such confusions are natural and advices by friends do not always are beneficial, they may confuse more. What your teachers say may be close to correct, since they have seen you for years very closely.

To be best sure of what suits you for your career, I would suggest you to undergo an online psychometric test from CareerGuide which will help you understand yourself in respect of your strengths, weaknesses, emotional quotient, etc. and will exactly tell you which career is ideal for you.
You can then call counsellors to discuss.

Best wishes!

Dear Student,

To put all your career queries to the rest , I recommend you to get your psychometric assessment done. The assessment involves analyzing your aptitude, interest, personality , study habits, work values etc through standardized psychological tests. You have an option to take assessment online on careerguide.com as well. After the assessment , a career plan will be generated which will have information regarding your main interest areas, personality attributes & aptitude . On the basis of your unique aptitude , interest and personality,the team of psychologists & career counselors will make recommendation on the subject & stream which should be opting for in class 11. You have an option to take a telephonic counselling session with a career guide who will equip you adequate information related to various career options after class 12 .
