Keeping these inters in mind will ease your path to success after Plus Two

Clearing the 12th  board examination does not end all your worries about studying. The impending admission tests for colleges and choosing a stream that will allow you to carve a successful career keep you busy even after boards.

Following these steps will help you to make the right decision.

Choose a stream carefully

It is best to remain in the chosen stream. For example, if you have studied science in the Plus Two, you have options such as engineering, medical, architecture, desing, Information Technology etc. besides, a Bachelor’s degree in pure science streams like physics, chemistry and biology are also your options. Similarly, with humanities and commerce there are a plenty of options in Bachelor’s degree courses. Choosing the same stream will allow easy understanding of the subjects as higher study materials.

Appear in an entrance exam

Depending on the stream you have chosen, you can sit for an entrance exam after 12th. Most of the reputed colleges take admissions through entrance exams. Many universities use entrance exams. Many universities use entrance tests because the number of applicants is generally very large. So you will need to plan for these entrance exams as these are held at different times in the year and you will have to fill the application and follow the process to appear in the exam. While some entrance exams are also available online, there are still many which are offered in both online and offline mode. So you need to plan the test centers and travel.

Know details of switching streams

 Many colleges and universities allow you to switch streams for higher studies. So entrance examination becomes important in such a scenario. You may have chosen a particular stream in your plus Two to keep options for higher studies open. But once in college you will have to carefully choose the stream you want to make your career out of it and more so carefully when you are switching streams. Colleges do allow some switches but there are some restrictions also. Like from science to commerce is possible but from commerce to science is not possible. So ideally you should explore the college and course and carefully look for the eligibility criteria to make the right decision. 

Plan your course of action

After 12 board exams are over, you get ample time to plan your next course of action. It is important to know the background of the college you choose. Admissions are competitive whether it is professional courses or others; there are limited seats and many takers. So even if you are the best and suited for course, admissions are not guaranteed. In that case the role of a good career counselor, who will help you explore other career options that suit your talent and profile or will tell you alternative ways to reach your career goals, comes into the picture. For example, you want to become a journalist and are not able to make it to BA journalism course. You can still go for a related graduation and in your PG take up journalism course. This way, you need to set your career goals.
