“What after 12th?” is a typical question among the 12th-grade pupils. Every year, the questions affect lakhs of students in India and overseas. They are perplexed about their career possibilities, work opportunities, and, of course, their passion and preferences. Counselors believe that a lack of sufficient information about the courses available in India and their professional possibilities is at least partly responsible. Science, commerce, and arts are the alternatives offered to students looking for a suitable course to follow after 12th.

Choosing a course should never be a convenient option, but rather a highly compelling one for students. Students must choose a course based on their interests, motivation, and ambitions.
