Courses you can Pursue After 12th Science Apart from B.Tech and Medical

Having studied science in class 12 does not limit your options for higher education. The advantage of studying science is that most of the undergraduate courses will be open for you once you have successfully passed your board exams. Keeping aside B.Tech course and medical programmes, you can also pick Science courses like BSc (Hons.), B Pharmacy or go for courses in commerce, languages, business, etc.

One of the most common myths amongst students is that they are not eligible to pursue commerce or economics programmes after studying science in class 12. On the contrary, Science students are not just eligible but also perform well in programmes like commerce, accounts, banking, etc. if they have studied mathematical subjects in class 12th.
