Students who have completed class 12 are often confused about which course to join after school. Here is a detailed list of higher education courses you can take up after class 12th to help you out of this confusion.

Higher Education Options after Class 12th

With the release of CBSE Class 12 result 2021 on 30th July 2021, the admission process for UG courses at universities will begin soon. Due to these unprecedented circumstances, the CBSE board opted for different evaluation criteria rather than conducting exams. The board added 30% marks of the best three subjects of Class 10, 30% marks of Class 11, and 40% marks of unit test, mid-term or pre-board exams of Class 12. As you might already know, just like 2020, CBSE has decided to not mark 'Fail' to Class 12 students and instead mention 'Essential Repeat' in subjects for which exams were cancelled. Now you must be wondering "What happens after Class 12 result? Which course to choose after Class 12th? Will there be any changes in the admission process of the colleges in India this year?". If so then you are in luck. Students today have innumerable options of courses available to them. No matter which streams a candidate is from, there are multiple choices of undergraduate courses after Class 12th awaiting their application. There is even the question of whether to go for higher education after Class 12th or not. Some students may be more inclined to choose alternate pathways after school, such as joining the Indian Army.

But there is no need to worry. For a student that follows a clearly defined strategy, choosing the correct option for higher education after Class 12 will be an easy task. In this article, we take a look at some of the best higher education options available after Class 12th. But first, let's take a look at how to choose the right course after Class 12th.

How to Choose the Right Higher Education Option after Class 12

It can get confusing and difficult when choosing the right course after Class 12th. While students in metropolitan cities with a more career-aware population make use of a lot of different resources when selecting the graduation course, students from smaller cities rely more on information they receive from their friends and tend to go towards popular choices that might not always be the best to them. Therefore, it is important to carefully go through each and every point to make the correct choice. Here are a few important points that will help you choose the right course after the 12th.

  • Identify your interests: Think about what is your hobby and passion and whether you can see yourself pursuing it as a career. The more clear you are about your interests, the easier time you will have when selecting a course.

  • Find Your Aptitude: You may be interested in pursuing History but find out that you are better at Mathematics. It is important to consider your aptitude and calibre when choosing a course. Try our career profiling test and find out your best skill-sets.

  • List Your Goals: It is essential that you have your goals in mind when choosing the right course. Goals must be practical objectives that you plan to achieve through your education. For eg. your goals can be earning money or solving social issues or joining a certain company/sector.

  • Understand the Course: Before choosing the course, read about its objectives, course curriculum, career scope, salary details, colleges etc. Find out whether the course is as per your requirements or not.

  • Research Well: For a student who is not even aware that an option such as Tea Management courses exists, choosing that option is obviously not possible. Hence, it is important to research and find out all of the available options before taking any further step.
