Hi

Thank you for reaching Mera careerguide.com,

First, I want to understand if you dont like entire Chemistry or any specifications under Chemistry such as organic, Inorganic, etc. Most of the science courses does consist of Chemistry and Engineering courses does consist of little chemistry. Apart from medicine and Engineering, there are a number of alternatives career options that you could consider moving into the future instead. I could suggest some. These could include, but are not limited to:

Nursing

Zoology

Biotechnology

Dentistry

Pharmacy

Psychology

Occupational Therapy

Having taken plus two scieinces, It could also be possible towards a completely non-science related course at degree level. People who have taken plus two science have moved on to take degrees in a number of diverse areas that are not related to the content of the science course that they had previously sudied. Courses that plus two science students have gone on to studies include areas such as:

Commerce

Banking

Managment

Languages

Media

Teaching

Taking a strong academic course like plus two science should mean that career options remain fairly open after you have completed the course. Although medicine and engineering are the two most obvious common and popular career options, they are by no means the only career routes that are available to you. You should not feel pressurized into pursuing medicine or engineering if it is not a career you will enjoy. You are still in a strong position to pursue whatever career option appeals to you. You have time on your side in your career ahead of you.

Hope this helps. You can always welcome to reach CareerGuide.com.com for further information

Good luck

Hello


Thank you for choosing CareerGuide.com and writing to us. I appreciate your interest in Science on the first hand. Before that, I want to tell you, please be relaxed. This sort of confusion is certain with every student put up in schools and colleges all over the world and is not something very unique with you. So please be cool about this and look out for next suitable options carefully and I am definitely there for you to help you choose the best suitable option.

First of all have you taken the psychometric test available on this website? I suggest you to please take the test on this website as it will help you to carefully analyse yourself and your interests level. Apart from this take up the suggestions I am giving for you here. I understand you have observed your disinterest in Chemistry and Engineering (electronics). But never worry, it happens. Be glad you spotted out at the early stage and did not suffer after graduating with a degree from college. There are students who blindly study a course with no personal interest or motivation to do it and I am very happy looking at you and in fact glad for you have come up to say you want something in Science.

To have a career related in Science, Biology subject is important. I suggest you check with your school of they can replace Electronics/ Chemistry with Biology. For any degree you opt in future related to Science, Biology subject is a must. Be it BSc Biology, Botany, Zoology, Psychology, Nursing, Medicine or what ever the college admissions will require you to have studied Biology as a mandatory subject in 12th standard.

In case you are inclined to a career other than Engineering, you can still consider doing a BSc Physics degree, BA Sociology with Social Psychology, Bachelor of Business Administration (BBA) and many other options. Suppose your schools agrees to offer you Biology subject you are indeed to study any of the subjects that I have first listed above.

From my personal view, in case your school doesnt offer you Biology, you can very well study BA Sociology or BA Social Psychology subjects. Else opt to study BBA and choose Organisational Psychology suject as your main elective in this BBA degree. Sociology and Organisational psychology/ behavior are inclined to science and you can very well enjoy studying it.

You have options to explore, time to develop yourself so please be cheerful and study happily. My best wishes.
