There are many courses after 10th to choose from, as the choice decides the student’s career in future, which course to choose is a very common question among students and their parents, Here in this guide we tried covering all possible courses after 10th that students in India can go for.

Once the student completes 10th class, discussions about choosing a course start like what are the courses after 10th and which course is better to go with and which course suits the student etc …

As this is very important in a students career, I want to list a few mistakes students or parents make while choosing a course, then list what are all available courses after 10th in India.

  1. Parents want to decide students next course without asking the child.
  2. Students choosing an easy to be finished course, Than which course suits his interests.

  4. Not considering scholarship opportunities.

Don’t do these mistakes when choosing courses after 10th

Parents want to decide students next course without asking the child.

If you are a parent, do not force your child to choose a course you like, most parents think their child is still a small kid and they decide their child’s next course after 10th, If you are one of that parent then remember you are choosing your child’s future by choosing the course, If the chosen by you is not your child’s interesting course then your child will not enjoy his course, And if your child is not skilful enough for the course you choose for the child then the chances of your child failing in the course are very high. Discuss with your child and try to understand your child interests, passion and skills to choose the next course for your child.

Students choosing an easy to be finished course, Than which course suits his interests.

I know a student who chooses to join Bi.p.c because of he is afraid of maths, If you are a student then please do not choose an easy course because of you afraid of a subject,

Not exploring all available course options, just picking a course influenced by someone else.

Not considering scholarship opportunities.
