There are various streams that students may choose after they have completed their tenth grade.
There are three streams in the tenth grade. They are science, commerce, and arts. The three streams are physics, chemistry, and mathematics; economics, accountancy, and business studies; sociology, psychology, history, etc.

The first stream that students can choose is the Science stream with subjects like Physics, Chemistry, Maths, and Biology.

The major advantage of this subject is it provides knowledge about the world around us. It also helps one understand how things work in nature and why they behave as they do. In addition to this, science classes teach students how to make predictions based on their observations or experiments; this skill will be useful when they become adults because many jobs require them to make predictions based on their observations or experiments.

The main disadvantage of this subject is that there are very few jobs available for people who have studied them professionally once they graduate from college/university level education institutions such as university colleges or polytechnics (Hindi: प्रकृति बनाउचा).

Students can also opt for Commerce stream with subjects like Economics, Accountancy, and Business studies.
The Commerce stream is also a very popular stream. This course is an ideal option for students who want to pursue higher studies after their graduation from college. In this stream, you will learn about the basics of business and get trained in the field of finance and accounting. You will also be taught how to apply these skills in real-life situations through practical applications. This course helps you gain knowledge about how businesses work, how they are managed and run efficiently, etc., which will help you understand what it takes for them to succeed at their tasks or projects with ease!

The third option is Arts or Humanities stream with subjects like Sociology, Psychology, History, Geography, Political science, etc.
The third option is Arts or Humanities stream with subjects like Sociology, Psychology, History, Geography, Political science, etc.

The subjects you can study in Arts or Humanities stream are:

Sociology

Psychology

History(Ancient and Medieval period)

If you want to study any other subject in arts then it will be very difficult for you because there are only a few schools which offer this course as a major subject. But if your aim is to become an engineer then engineering courses are also available in this stream.

Some students also opt for Vocational subjects like Fine Arts etc.

Vocational subjects are also available but they are not as widely available as other streams. These subjects are more practical and hands-on than theory-oriented, so it is important to pick a stream that focuses on practical skills rather than theoretical knowledge.

Opportunities Galore – Streams
The biggest decision post-class 10 is picking the right stream. Picking the right stream is extremely important as everything that happens thereafter will depend on it. At times, students follow the herd mentality and pick the stream that their friends opt for or the one that their parents suggest. This is a wrong and dangerous practice and will lead to flawed career decisions. Many students pick the stream without actually understanding what lies in store for them after joining it. Therefore, proper understanding and knowledge of the stream you opt for and the future career options they offer are very important. Following are the different streams that are available after Class 10.

1. Science – The Usual Favourite

Science is easily the most attractive stream and the one that almost every parent wants their child to opt for. The Science stream offers you many lucrative career options such as engineering, medicine, IT, and computer science, and even research in a variety of domains. The biggest advantage of opting for the science stream for Class 10 students is that it allows them to shift streams (Arts or Commerce) later on in their academic careers. Simply put, a Science student can opt for any subject from the Arts or Commerce stream, if they are not comfortable with courses or specialization offered in it at the graduation level. On the contrary, Arts or Commerce students do not enjoy this option and are not allowed to pick science subjects for undergraduate courses.

As far as your Class 11th and 12th are concerned, you will have to deal with foundational science subjects i.e. Physics, Chemistry, Biology, and Mathematics along with a few electives such as Computer Science, IT, and Electronics. In addition to these, you will also have a compulsory language subject, depending upon the teaching medium you opt for. The teaching pedagogy will involve classroom teaching as well as practical training in laboratories. If you are interested in Engineering you can opt for PCM or Physics + Chemistry + Mathematics as core subjects, otherwise, you can pick PCMB or Physics + Chemistry + Mathematics + Biology, if the medicine is the career that interests you.

2. Commerce – Best for Business

Commerce is the second most popular stream among Class 10 students as a career choice. If numbers, finances, and economics are your forte, you must opt for Commerce Stream. As far as future career options are concerned, the Commerce stream can lead you to some of the most lucrative and high-paying jobs such as Chartered Accountants, Company Secretaries, Accountants, Investment Banking, and Financial Advisors; although you will have to opt for professional courses in these respective domains post your Class 12.

As a Commerce student, you will have Business Economics, Accountancy, Business Study, and Business Law as your core subjects. In addition to this, you will also get foundational training in accounting, auditing, income tax, marketing, and general business economics as part of the commerce stream. Just as in the Science stream, students from Commerce also have a compulsory language subject.

3. Arts / Humanities – Off-beat & Exciting Options

Humanities or what is popularly known as the Arts stream is traditionally the least preferred option among Class 10 students but this perception is changing with time. Today, the Arts stream has emerged as the widest study stream among all three, offering some interesting, off-beat, and exciting career opportunities. Traditionally, the Arts stream was limited to students who were interested in academic research but this perception has changed in the last decade. Today, Arts students have a plethora of career options and most of them are equally lucrative and satisfying as the ones available through Science or Commerce streams. An Arts student can opt for career options like Journalism, Literature, Social Work, Teaching, and many others.

As far as subjects are concerned, Arts students have a variety of subjects to choose from which include sociology, history, literature, psychology, political science, philosophy, economics, etc. Along with one compulsory language option, Arts students also have the choice to opt for a second language as well.

4. Stream-Independent Career Options

In the last decade, India’s education sector has diversified, giving you many unique choices and options post-Class 10. There are several short-term certification courses, diploma courses, vocational courses, and even some professional courses that you can opt for after completing your Class 10. However, as a class 10 student, you might not be fully aware of all the opportunities that are on offer and the challenges that come along with them. Therefore, you must consult a career counselor, who will help you understand all the aspects related to these new-age career options and help make an informed choice.

Takeaway:
The final takeaway is that students can choose from a wide range of subjects. For example, they can opt for the Science stream if they want to pursue an engineering career or Commerce stream if they wish to work in finance or marketing. But students are also free to pursue vocational courses like IT-Software Development and Art & Design which can help them get jobs immediately after graduation

Conclusion
The future is bright for those who opt for the science stream and commerce. They will have a good academic career as well as a good job opportunity in their field of interest. This can be a very rewarding experience for students who have done well in their tenth-grade exams
