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 B.Tech and medical programmes aside, you can either pick science courses like B.Sc. (Hons.), B.Pharma or you can study 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. have studied mathematical subjects in class 12.

Following are some of the courses that you can pick after 12th Science apart from B.Tech and Medical:
