Or go for a BA in your chosen subject or move on to professional courses after 12th, like Law, Management, Hotel Management, Design, Mass communication and Journalism etc. Most of these courses offer good career opportunities but choosing what matches your strengths is vital.

Professional courses mainly require an entrance test and if you cannot make it to them then take up a related graduation and take up that course in your PG. All you need to do is proper setting of goals, taking smart decisions and selecting a stream that matches your skill set and profession in demand.

Make the right decision at the right time and thoroughly explore the college and the available courses. Take up a psychometric test which will map your inherent aptitude, your personality and your interests. If you choose a course based on these three important attributes, then it becomes very simple and easy to utilise them to the fullest.
