After 12th, the stream leaves number of options before the student to choose. Before choosing the next step, students must know the number of possible educational ways available for them.

Choice between College and Job

It is assumed that the students who are financially weak stop the studies and start working at such age. It is not totally true. Many of the aspirants choose it willingly to grab better opportunities. So many jobs like Navy, Army and few private institutes like banks recruit the personnel at such age and train them with the pertinent courses that they could be better professionals. They expose them to learn the practical working techniques as trainees besides the theoretical studies. This helps them to gain the qualification and experience simultaneously.

Those who really deserve the financial aid can also take the choice without breaking the studies. There are number of institutes and colleges who offer courses at the working people’s convenient timings and also offer correspondence courses. This helps them to earn money, experience as well as the qualification. However it is also true that the stress may be comparatively more as they need to balance job and studies.

For the entrance in MBBS or for Bachelor Degree in Engineering or Technology or Architecture, students have to attend the entrance tests conducted by the colleges. The score in the 12th and the score in the entrance test are the majorly considered. Few of the colleges also conduct interview or group discussion as part of the admission process. Candidates must know the available specializations earlier and choose the college offering it as all specializations are not offered by a college.
