What do I do after Class X?

June 08, 2006

You have completed Class X. 

What stream should you choose next: science, arts or commerce?

According to YoungBuzz counsellor Srividya who chatted with Get Ahead readers, it depends on what your favourite subjects are.

If you like physics, chemistry, maths, you could go for science. If you like languages, history, geography, etc, go for arts. If you are good with numbers, go for commerce. 

For those of you who missed the chat, here is the transcript:
