As the secondary school (10th STD) results have come, I congratulate all the winners for their success. Once the first big examination of student’s life was over, students and parents tend to go through a lot of confusion as to what course must be chosen next in order to pursue their dream.
The four major groups that peep at any person as higher education pops in the mind are science (physics, chemistry, biology, mathematics, computer science); arts/ humanities (history, geography, sociology, economics, psychology, etc.) and commerce (accountancy, economics, business studies, and mathematics).
There’s a lot more than this. But most students and parents are not aware of them. For example, if a student is so much interested in designing he/she finds it more difficult to select a course that best suits them. Therefore this post is here to give you a guidance on most of the courses available other than the major streams we are all aware of.
First to mention is vocational courses. These courses are available in certain schools though not available in many. These courses are more like professional courses. They offer courses like fitting, food production, mass media, auto mechanic, general machinist, letterpress and printing, business machines, building maintenance and electrical domestic appliances, automobiles, tourism, beverages, etc. These courses provide you with a certificate (Certificate for Vocational Higher Secondary Education), that can facilitate the students to directly go on a job on their interested field of profession.
There are also other streams like dairy. Dairy is also another special stream which equips the students to increase their interest in the cattle and other domestic animals. Once the students complete this course entering a medical field as a veteran becomes quite easy.
If a student is not interested in completing the higher secondary school education he/she can very well opt for some diploma courses which they are interested in. There is a lot of diplomatic courses available for the students who come out of their secondary education. These polytechnic colleges offer almost all the courses offered by the engineering colleges. Therefore once the student has completed his diplomatic course of three years they can directly join the second year in their interested engineering college.
The various courses offered by the polytechnic colleges include civil, mechanical, fashion designing, architecture, chemical, electrical, automobile, etc.
Students can also take courses like maths, ITI, fashion designing, etc. and complete their higher education according to their passion. Students have to study their major course along with an optional and two language papers.
All the people have a right to pursue their dream and so does the students. Therefore do not confine yourself to the traditional way of having the four major group as your option. The modern world has given a lot of scope for the development of student’s interest. Therefore hunt for your dream and make it true, thus living your life to the fullest.
