science arts or commerce
Science arts or commerce a question which every student at a stage has to ask from himself , What to study ,which exam to appear for Science, Arts or commerce? A very confusing career option for many students who have completed there class 10 exam, Students are unable to decide on this and when I talked to my cousin and his classmates then I really realized that mass of students are confused , in case in family there is no one from these Background as in an engineer always wish to make his/her child an engineer and same is case with a CA/CS and in that case decision of child gets influenced by decision of parents but where there is no CA,CS or an engineer , child is more confused.
Board results have been recently published in June 2014 and students are running in colleges to take admission but are confused. Many of the times preference is given to college than subject but it depends on individual to individual. Many students give preference to subject of choice as well. Although choosing one among Science Arts & Commerce has always been topic of group discussion
I remember my days when we hardly knew about any thing else than that of science as a career path and we had mentality which went as follows.
Best student takes Science
Average student go with commerce
No more a student but need degree! Go for Arts or UPSC aspirant
But now after a decade I really realised that order is actually reverse , If we consider career option then highest payed individuals or highest earners are those who made career in ARTS , Its difficult to believe but take example of all artists , may it be an actor or singer.
I do understand that in a country like India its very difficult to think of Music , Film & television as a career option but remember those days when music was being considered as waste of time and effort but latter it was accepted by parents as hobby of kids , similarly talk of cricket , Now cricket coaching are more popular then any other time. If you are Parent reading it , I do understand that , still its difficult to understand what I am trying to convey.
I simply want to convey let child fly , Allow him choose himself , every stream has its height , why we should limit our self or our children for an engineering JOb or a Bank PO job , may be he is worth more , probably he or she would be more interested if parents allow kids to make hobby as career option then it would be win win situation for career and hobby both.
For information of Parents : Engineering is least paid Job Globally but by this I do not mean to say that Science should not be taken as option.
Let me illustrate it This way Science , Commerce or Arts
Science is considered as career option mainly in Under Developed countries or countries which have agricultural economy or Manufacturing as base of Economy , in country like India where manufacturing and cheap labor is base of economy and earlier even when we had agriculture based economy then Science was considered as better career option but In Developed countries which Consulting based economy or knowledge based economy Commerce gets more preference this system will have another effect and we have started seeing it in Developed economies like that of US where economy is changing towards Entertainment it will be Art based education and Arts will be main focus.
I hope now it will be little more clear and easy to take decision.
Take care of following aspects while choosing a career
1. What you want to be in life
2. Whats your strength
More than liking emphasize on disliking and don’t waste your time there.
If you donot like maths , physics , chem and like to make car , do not run for science , arts can be better option . Design can be your key forte. you will get chance to design cars and planes.
There is one Benefit with ARTs which we always feel , we take it for granted and think let me take science or commerce , if not able to do well then will opt for arts in 12th or graduation. According to Indian education system its always an option but in that case take it point. You will never be able to read Science because you surrendered in beginning same with Commerce and Arts you can never be good at because you chose it because you had no other option.
Technically its always possible to shift from science or commerce to arts
