Importance and Advantage of choosing PCM/PCB ?
The 10th passed fraternity is broadly divided into two categories: the maybes and the wannabes. The wannabes are the ones who know what they have to become but don’t know where to start with. On the other hand there are maybes, stuck between what’s and how’s and when’s. That right there is a tough spot. And the more doomed question- what to choose- PCM OR PCB.
It would sound cliché but both have their own advantages per se. It’s not the time when you say that the PCB students will go on to become doctors or PCM students probably engineers. But sadly little do are 10th graders know that there is a whole lot of career outside these two fields. If you are interested in pure basic sciences you can make your career in research, present your theory papers, and have a reputable job of a professor or an assistant professor. If you don’t want to be restricted in a small cubicle in some private conglomerate, there is a career for you right in research. Sadly India hasn’t been one of those countries who have been much supportive of a career in research sector, primarily because the jobs are lucrative, but if you make it through to some top research colleges in India like IISc, IISERs or NISERs you are sure to get a job in research and development department of some great company.
Choosing Biology will give you a whole new perspective of looking things around. Because of being closely integrated to a wide array of fields (Botany, Medical Sciences, Zoology, and Life Sciences to name some) it will surely give you an option to figure out what you like and where you want to make your career out of. Again there are some major breakthroughs made in the field of biology every year, so there are researches going on every single day and those small contributions make our lives better. When you study Biology, you not only study the basic autonomy of the body but, examine the very existence of the life form and its interaction with other spheres of the nature. Again the above mentioned colleges provide you a chance to major in Biology under some of the finest faculties in India.
Because of being one of the elite institutes of the country it’s really hard to get into them, but proper guidance can do a lot in your pursuit of destiny. And to vaguely quote Robert Frost in the end when you reach there you’ll find that it was that single decision that made all the difference.
