Hello There,

Firstly it is one of a unique career option available
Secondly it has a lot of scope.

As the name suggests Maths would involves computations, study of numbers and no doubt calculations.
It has scope all over in every industry right from accounting to inventory.

As such after 12th, you can opt for a B.Sc in Math with statistics and join business firms or finance industry as an account auditor or financial advisors.
With the help of statistics you can get into diagnostics profile just like the geoinformatics profile.

Or else in case you are interested in computers you can opt for B.Sc IT (MATH) being compulsory or opt for computer software related jobs.

Other option which is a common option which includes Teaching. After graduation, opt for a B.Ed program and start teaching in schools or junior college.
Incase you wish to be a professor, you would have to clear your NET / SET after completing your PG Degree.

Hope this helps.
Wish you good luck..
