    Both are good, and depends on what your interest is, and also depending on what you see yourself doing after your graduation.

    Of the two, engineering is a bit tougher academically.

    Now to come to the basic difference, B.Sc is more research oriented and theoretical, while Engineering is more of practical and application oriented.

    B.Sc will get you jobs in the research departments or labs, while being an engineer you will be working in the field. A field, also depends on what type of engineer you are – if you have taken civil, you will be on construction sites, if you are mechanical engineer, you will be in the production plant, if IT, then the IT companies, doing programming coding  etc.,

    Also, it is not necessary that these are the only thing that you do. For example, if you do not want to work in labs or plants, and want to work in office, then you need to do your masters, say, in management (MBA etc.,) and work in an office of a research or engineering firm.

    One more important thing to consider is – how much you will earn?

    An engineering degree has a slight edge over a BSc degree. However, good grades and a reputed college will be very helpful for B.Sc graduates. It is also recommended to do post graduation courses like MSc or MBA etc., to have a better advantage while job hunting.

    You need to assess the above options and see which interests / suits you more and choose accordingly.

    Admissions to engineering college is not just depends on your XII percentage. You need to give your entrance exams for the same viz., AIEEE, JEE, CET etc.,

    Computer Engineering and Animation, both are completely different field and require different levels of skillsets to be successful.

    Computer engineering is all about coding and developing softwares, while animation is a technique wherein you use your skills like drawing / sketching on computers to create animated characters.

    To be an computer engineer, you need to first of all very good percentage in your XII and entrance exams, to get in to the top colleges. Maths along with science subjects are of prominence here.

    To be an animator, you need a creative mind with good drawing / sketching skills.

    In computer software programme, you have the option of doing Engineering, which is indepth and core programming, or you can do BCA – BSc. in Computer Science and do higher studies like MCA and M.Sc Computer Science.

    For Animation, you can do B.Sc in Animation.

    Depending upon your interest and more importantly your marks and skills you possess, you may choose either of the one accordingly.

    The best way to handle this confusion is to know what options you have for higher studies and career in either of these fields.

    Commerce – Accounting and Finance is the major career options here.

    Science with Biology & Physics – Research work and Medicine

    The above are the major career options that most students take up after graduation.

    However, there are many alternatives that one can take

    After 12th Commerce or Science

    Mass Media – if you are creative you can specialise in journalism, advertising etc.,


    You can do Management – BMS / BBA courses, then do your MBA and get in to management field. If you do not want to go in to management straightway, you can do your graduation in your preferred field – Commerce or Science, and then take up MBA as post graduation course.

    After 12th Science (PCB), you can do
    – Dental Science
    – Pilot
    – Environment Science etc.,
    – Forensic Science

    So, think over which of these fields attracts you the most, and whether you have the aptitude or skills to handle the subjects related to these fields in college, and then make a decision.

    After 12th with PCM you have lots of good options. It might look very confusing with all the options available. You can choose the one that interests you the most.

    For example – if you like research jobs, and, say, you are very good at chemistry, you can take up higher studies in chemistry viz., BSc Chemistry, then do your MSc and higher studies like M.Phil and PhD research in chemistry.

    This way you can short list a few careers that interests you, and then across each one of them note down the courses that are related to it, just like above.

    You can then check out what all subjects are involved in these courses. The ones that matches your interests and academic skills could be the best option to choose.

  • It is important, before making a choice, to consider the following two aspects – your aptitude/skills (the subjects you are strong in) and interest/passion.

    Mathematics is a common factor in both the fields, but if you want to go for Mechanical you need to be good in Physics. A good interest in maths, physics and a bit of chemistry too makes a good combination for mechanical engineering.

    If you are very good at maths, but don’t want to delve any further in the other two subjects, computer science could be the best choice.

    With the subjects clear, the next most important thing to consider or align, with it, is your interest. If interest or passion is lacking, no matter how good you are, you will never find any motivation to study or work.

    So you need to answer these questions – What is your interest ? what excites you ? – if fast cars, planes etc., has been your interest, and always wished to know how these fine machineries works, not caring to gets your hands a bit dirty and greasy doing it, mechanical engineering is your thing.

    If it’s the cool gadjets, amazing apps etc., that keep you awake all night and you wouldn’t mind sitting for hours together, eyes fixed on a monitor, getting that code right, computers is your call.

    It could still be tough job to choose, but mixing skills with passion will always give one a satisfying career for life.

    It is a tough question to answer, as to which has more scope – Statistics or Engineering.

    However, if you look at it, most of the students who take up statistics end up being a Statistician working in different organisations on statistical analysis majorly.

    Engineering students on the other hand try their hands on engineering fields and some shift to management (MBA) after their graduation and work in the managerial cadre of companies.

    From the above you may see that the engineering students have more choices.

    But, even though Statistics is a niche category, if you look at the options you have it is quite a few. For example you can work in different positions in varied organisations for eg., as an Analyst, market analyst, data analyst, quantitative analyst, bio statistician, business statistician, or a professor / teacher.

    Also, you can work in different sectors, whether it is a banking, insurance, engineering, manufacturing, research, pharmaceutical, medical etc., as almost all of them needs an analyst to get the data analysed by a qualified statistician – for eg., in banking you need information on number of people that have availed a particular loan – what is the market demand for it? In an pharmaceutical / medicine company you want to know whether the medicine is successful or not, how many are using it, or what is the number of people who are on a particular medicine etc.,

    Now, if you compare it with engineering, Statistics looks much wider atleast in terms of the number of opportunities in different sectors it opens up for students.

    If you good in Science subjects, then taking up Science with PCB – physics, chemistry and biology – could be a good option. You can go for higher studies in either of these subjects for your graduation – like B.Sc (in physics, or chemistry or biology) or B.Sc in Environment, or even Biotechnology etc.,

    Commerce is a good option, but you can switch to Commerce after 12th Science, so you have an option there.

    PS: Most of the students aren’t aware what Commerce is all about? It could be advisable if one can get a few accounting books and go through it, and understand what it is all about. This will give you a fair idea what you will be dealing with in Commerce. Commerce has mainly accounting subjects and economics. You may get used books or may lend it from seniors in your vicinity.

    BBA is a bachelor’s degree in Management. You do this course after your 12th.

    MBA is a master’s degree in Management. You pursue this after your graduation.

    Further, there is no compulsion of doing BBA to pursue MBA.

    Apart from NATA, which is a requirement for majority of colleges for admission to B.Arch, you first need to clear the JEE (Main) Entrance examination for B.Arch.

    CBSE conducts the JEE (Main) examination for B.ARch – check out the details here – http://jeemain.nic.in/webinfo/welcome.aspx

    You have quite a few optons like if you feel research is what you want to do after your studies then – Msc or Engineering in fields like biochemistry, biotechnology, biomedical, agriculutre, microbiology, environment science etc.,

    Other options like physiotheraphy and related studies, nursing, audiology, lab technology, a degree in nutrition and dietics could also be a great choice.

    Pharmacy could be another fine option, along with dental science, veterinary science, dairy science to name a few other alternatives.

    Quite a few options out there, and if you are still confused with so many, what you can do is first jot down a few that interests you and then check out what kind of courses is involved in each of these fields, then see what kind of job (the day-to-day work) that would be involved in these.

    This will give you a good idea of what exactly they are and then you can shortlist the ones that best matches your interests and skill levels.

    Always make sure you have a good idea of what you are planning to do.
