You must be specific in your question. Please mention in which stream you have completed your 12th. There are different courses for the different streams.

If you are from science biology then go for medical courses, if you are from science maths then go for engineering and designing courses, if you are from commerce then go for and financed courses.

If you are from arts then go for the courses like economics, Psychology, Literature etc.

And if you want to prepare for the competitive exams, just after 12 class then here are few exams in which you can appear –

  • SSC Stenographer Exam
  • Lower Division Clerks
  • Data Entry Operators
  • Assistant Loco Piolet
  • Station Master
  • Helper
  • Indian Navy

There are also other career opportunities in government sector just after clearing your 12 class.

Recently Railway Recruitment Board has announced the notification for conducting the RRB ALP Exam 2018.

As per the notification, the last date of registration is 5 March 2018.

If you want to appear in RRB Alp then first thing you need to do is to know about its exam pattern and difficulty level.

RRB Previous year question papers are the best way to know about it’s difficulty level and type of questions asked in the exam.

So, I hope that the provided information will be helpful to you.

If you have any query related to this answer, then you can share it with me!
