What after PUC?

Confusion confounded

Most students, after finishing the PUC, struggle to zero in on the choice of subject and make the right career move.

Bright future: Discussing amongst each other helps student clear doubts.

What course to pursue after pre-university? This is a question that rattles most young people. While some have their dreams set and begin working towards it right from their school, others find it hard to zero in on a particular course.

Those who choose to experiment only end up confusing themselves. Lack of proper guidance and internal squabbles further heighten their confusion. These students often end up choosing the wrong course and lose out on a bright future for themselves.

The results will be announced in a day or two and the students are battling hard to zero in on the choice of subject.

“I am in utter confusion. Everyone in my family has been advising me about different courses. My brother suggested I take up Diploma in Education and my sister advised fashion designing courses run by the NIFT. I don't know how to come out of this maze,” says Asha, who has done PUC in arts. 

Sudheendra from St Joseph’s College is a science student who has written both CET and COMED-K with an intention to take up an engineering course. “I wanted to pursue my education abroad. However, due to attacks on students  abroad my parents aren’t willing to send me. However, I have written my entrance examinations well and hope to join a good college in the City,” he says.  

Santosh from PES College has started vying for a prestigious college for an engineering course. “Now I can dream  but my results will decide my fate. I am ready to change my dream according to performance in the exam. I just hope young people will not run away from their homes or commit suicide because of poor performance,” he says.

Students who opt for science are better placed when it comes to choosing a career. And those opting for commerce have a variety of options as well. “I thought of doing BBA, BCA, BHM but could not finalise anything. The career planning workshop, held in my college helped me opt for CA as my career option.

Chartered Accountancy is the most prestigious as well as a rewarding profession. However, I am still unclear about the course and haven’t chosen my college yet,” says Suprem of St Joseph’s College.

Those who have chosen arts have a plethora of options before them. Laxmi from New Horizon College is yet to make up her mind. “I’d like to pursue a five-year course in law. But my father is unhappy with that. He says many law graduates are still struggling to establish themselves. The result will be out in two days, and educational institutions will start their admission process. But I am still confused,” she says.
