Science or commerce? most of my friends and other intelligent students I know have chosen science. I am one of those 90% scoring students. And so everyone around me is advising me to take science. But I dont think I would be able to manage the science stream. And then when I start to consider commerce I am confronted by the fact that I dont have a business mind. Now I want to know the career options in both these fields. The career options must be specific to that field i.e. the career must only be available to those students who have taken its respective option. For eg- A career in doctor is only specific to the science students.
Hello My Dear Career Aspirant,
Your question is so so perfect and so clear and I very much get a sense that you are an extremely talented and disciplined and well organised person who can articulate his / her thoughts and convey them precisely without any confusion and barrier.
I very much appreciate that you approached with your concern to us at CareerGuide.com. I very much liked your approach towards career of being a very specific to the field professional.
In my more than seven years of career counselling experience and some years of teaching experience where I have interacted with thousands of students like you, your career query is really unique and I have never come across a student so clear in his / her thoughts about this career.
Choosing a career stream after SSC:
Arts, Commerce and Science are the three streams typically which are chosen by students.
You say that you have been scoring 90% and above average in your exams and there fore you see many students having such marks go into the science field. You have also found out that commerce field requires business mind.
My Dear Student, your both the above observations are very correct, however not every body is applicable to the above assumption or notion, since of the fact that actually every body of us very unique in our own way. This unique ness if found out and if a career is chosen based on this, then one can create wonders in the world of career for him / her self.
Choosing between Arts, Commerce and Science has never been very simple, however it can be made simple if you dig into your self and introspect your self.
Your subconscious mind telling you that you cannot manage the science stream is a strong indication and there fore I suggest you not to go against your gut feeling and inner voice, no matter what others say. Doing so will definitely land you in trouble in future, where you will not be emotionally connected to it.
Psychometric Test is an Answer:
Psychometric Assessment Test is an ideal answer I would give to a problem which you have.

Thank you very much for approaching CareerGuide.com, as your query related to your endeavor is our our objectives. I am also in the questioning mode and trying to raise the fundamental question from our society and its representatives (educated parents, academicians, legislative and other so called dignitaries) why our young generation asks this type of question after more then sixty years of independence??? This universal question reflects our fear psychosis, our insecurity, lack of self confidence, poor academic background and after all our upbringing in immature and so-called intellectual society those are claiming that we will be super-power soon???? How come? as long as we will face this type of question-What should I opt in career, how I will get job, which subject will be better for me???? These reflect our mental status and threatening remarks of our uncontrolled situation in the nation. More then eighty percent of population is in the same striving condition which could be fatal. Due to such symptomatic situation we are developing different aptitude to study a particular course, job etc and consequently we are attempting a career in vague.
Based on above background try to follow the certain paths as below:
Develop a habit of self study and introspection which have been lost due to the future insecurity (a natural problem for all of us) and repeat your studied materials once again whatever language you know just try to translate the moral of the story in all the sense -sciences, humanities, maths and commerce all---
