Engineering is a very popular and in demand course, but the fact that every year millions of students try to clear the competitive exams, and for the rat race it has become, it is not necessary for you to become a part of this race. If you don’t want to be just another goat in the herd, you don’t need to be. In fact, there are a hell lot of career options one can pursue after completing their senior secondary education with PCM (Physics, Chemistry, and Mathematics).
I would try to include as much as courses I can, but my apologies if I miss some. Now buck yourself up, because the number of courses is going to boggle your mind.
