Science touches our lives in many ways -- in medicine, computers, military defense, and textiles, to name a few. Science is a vast field and different career options are available for students to choose from. The term science is very vast and mainly has two forms: Pure Science and Applied Science. Further, again we can divide science in two more sub categories as: Math’s category and Biology category.
Hundreds of career options are available for science students.
+2 Science with PCM: Candidates who have studied the subject combination of physics, chemistry and mathematics (PCM) in class XII can take up engineering as their career.
+2 Science with PCB: Subjects such as physics, chemistry and biology (PCB) are required for students aspiring to take up careers in medicine or dental studies, biochemistry, biotechnology, microbiology, agricultural and dairy science. Options are also available in the paramedical and allied fields such as Nursing, Physiotherapy, Occupational therapy, Audiology, Speech Therapy, Medical Lab Technology, Optometry, Nutrition and Dietetics, Pharmacy etc.
Those interested in animal husbandry and veterinary science can take a career as a veterinary doctor.
+2 Science with PCMB (bio-math): Those with +2 science Bio-maths can take up either an engineering or a medical career.
If not interested in engineering and medical field, 10+2 science students can go for B.Sc. (Bachelor of Science) program of their choice of interest, which can be followed by Master's degree (M.Sc.), Ph.D. and M.Phil. Teaching is another option.
Anyone who has studied 10+2 with Science subjects like Physics, Chemistry, Biology and/Or Mathematics are eligible for pursuing further education or career in the field of science.
