Which Stream to choose after Class 10th and why? | Career options after class 10

10th standard is one of the preliminary and most important point in a student’s life. The stream the student chooses after 10th plays a huge role in determining their career path.

Overview

If you have completed your 10th and wondering what to do after 10th then this post will help you as a guide. Here, I have listed down different streams one can pursue after finishing their class 10th boards examination.

COURSES AND STREAMS AFTER 10TH

11TH AND 12TH PUC

The most popular and by far the best choice among 10th passed students in India is 10+1 followed by 10+2.  Nowadays, most jobs require Bachelor’s Degree as minimum educational qualification required. In order to pursue a Bachelor’s Degree course, you need to complete 10+2 in the first place! This shows how useful this path is.

If a student is interested in following this path, he/she has many options available in front of them. 11th and 12th standards have three prominent streams in India which are:

  • Humanities stream
  • Commerce stream
  • Science stream

Why choose Science?

When compared to other main streams- Commerce and Humanities, Science stream is comparatively a bit tough. Academically bright students would not have much difficulty in facing the subjects present in this stream I feel.

I, myself being from Science background can assure you these 2 years in your +2 will either make you or break you. You will be seeing the beauty which lies in each subject which you will be taught.

Note: Whatever you have studied till your class 10th science or maths will hardly be of any use in your +2 curriculum. Most of the topics will be new, interesting & of great knowledge.

Science stream is a very popular choice among 10th standard passed students in India. Students who want to pursue pure and applied science in professional courses for future may choose this stream.

SCIENCE STREAM GROUPS

When it comes to Science stream, there are two main groups within it. They are-

  • Biology Group (Main Subjects: Physics, Chemistry and Biology)
  • Mathematics Group (Main Subjects: Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics)

 

These groups, to an extent, ends up determining the career path of a student. A student may choose any one of the above mentioned groups. The choice has to be made by the student.

  2. Chemistry
  3. Mathematics
  4. Biology

Ethernet Cables in Fujitsu laptops

Wireless Internet is more available today than it was five years ago, but it’s not universal. The office where I work has a public Wi-Fi hotspot, but no behind-the-firewall wireless network. I could use our VPN, but that connection doesn’t give me complete access to my network shares. It’s also very slow.
“Optical transmission are reasonable and easy to handle , but there are still a lot of places where wireless simply can’t do the job, especially when one is in a neighbourhood that has too many wireless interfering with each other, having that Ethernet port is like saving yourself from the mass failure.”

Fujitsu Laptops provide a LAN adapter along with the Ethernet LAN which is an accessory for many users. With Laptops getting thinner and thinner with time Fujitsu Laptops are the ones to look out for in the near future.

Extended LAN Port

Fujitsu Laptops have a slide-out Ethernet connector. It enables LAN Ports & Ethernet cables to connect even in the thinnest and lightest of laptops.
