'Are you foolish?!? You cannot choose this field!' This is the instant reply that most of the 12th pass students have to hear when they present their interest in courses other than the conventional ones. An engineer's daughter is expected to choose engineering field, while a doctor's child is expected to become a doctor. Needless to say, the day a student clears his/her engineering or medical entrance exam, there is a wave of happiness amongst the family, friends and relatives. However, the fact is that there are a lot more course choices where you can find a good career option and a better future other than a regular engineering or medical course. A student with bachelor's degree in Mathematics or statistics at 12th standard/degree level or someone who has completed their BCA can pursue MCA which is a very unique course which provides students with advanced technical skills like algorithm design, computer networks, latest programming languages, software development and other Information technology-related subjects. On the other hand, Pharmacy today has transformed into a hub for the 'Global Healthcare'. Graduates of pharmacy degrees work at the heart of human healthcare, taking on roles which are related to the design and development of new treatments, prescription and care management while advising the patient about the range of medical options available.
Be it something adventure-centric like Aviation or Defense, to something research focused like Chemistry or Forensic Science, or something with a lot of job prospects like MCA or Pharmacy, the possibilities of students are endless!
