The major problem faced by most of the students as they pass out of the 10th standard is the difficulty in choosing the stream which gives them better career path. There is a lot of confusion whether to go with Arts, Science or Commerce stream.

All the three streams have their own importance, vast scope for development and career options. Some students may not opt for Science thinking that to study Science subjects more time and concentration is required. It is more concepts oriented and there is not much scope for developing the major fundamental theories already developed. Whereas Humanities is opted by those who are more interested in current affairs and social issues. The rest of the students may opt for commerce.

It is a common idea among students that commerce is the middle-stage when it comes to levels of studying.

Earlier there was a mind-set among the people, that Science is superior among the disciplines, but now that mind-set has changed and Majority of the students are choosing Humanities and Commerce as various career options are available.
