The science stream is often preferred by those who are aspiring to pursue professional courses after 12th. The primary subjects in science stream are Physics, Chemistry, Biology, Mathematics and Computer Science. Among other subjects, English is compulsory while the other language subject is left for choice. There are also practical labs along with theory, which calls for a lot of hard work for students in this stream.
Opting for science stream opens up both medical and non-medical career options, including medical science, engineering, and other interdisciplinary careers. If interested in a medical field, you will have to include Biology along with Physics and Chemistry as your core subject combination, while for engineering, you will have to replace biology for mathematics or computer science as the core subject. However, there are also other career options including either two or only one of the science subjects. It is hence better to decide your future path at this stage only and choose the relevant subjects accordingly.
By studying in science stream after 10th, students can opt to pursue the further higher education in diverse fields such as Biochemistry, Bioinformatics, Cytology, Dental Science, Genetics, Pharmaceuticals, Space Exploration, Biotechnology, Metallurgy, Forensic Science, and many others, besides the ever popular medical and engineering options.
