Is science worthwhile for me?

Will I be studying all the time?

Will I be able to do it?

What will I do if I opt for science?

I won’t have a social life after opting for science, will I?

These are the questions that haunt every student’s mind who thinks about opting for the science stream. Luckily, I have answers to all your questions!

Science is called ‘the usual favorite’ for reasons such as these:

  1. It allows students to shift streams (Humanities or Commerce) later on in their careers.
  2. The students are provided with a variety of career options.
  3. This stream helps us understand the world around us.



Science is the poetry of reality.

Science is one of the most beneficial streams when it comes to career decisions.

Whether you’re indecisive about your career path or simply want to be a part of the STEM field, the science stream opens all options for you.

But having a lot of options is trouble too, you keep on wavering between multiple fields and end up more confused than you even started with!

Anything is possible. Anything can be.

Shel Silverstein

By becoming an engineer, you can make a difference by solving problems that are important to society and create an impact!
