My nephew has appeared for class 10 exam from CBSE this year. He wanted to pursue research and be a scientist but is now confused about his stream. He is good at math, analytical skills but doesn't like biology. Should he opt for science or commerce? Would CA or commerce be a good option for him?

Ans: Thank you for the question. In my understanding, your nephew enjoys Physics and chemistry. Research in these areas can also be taken. We dont need to take biology as a subject he he does not enjoy studying that subject.
If his science scores are consistently high and he likes exploring newer areas of learning, research can be a very good avenue. Since you say that his analytical skills is good and he is good at math too, you can look at computing sciences, applied mathematics, data sciences and Design engineering. Please note, computing sciences is slightly different than computer science. Applied math and Big Data is an upcoming area of study and with good analytical skills, he should be able to do that.
Research can be done in any area. One must understand that research is "finding, critiquing, analysing sources of information and rationalising to investigate a particular scenario". Now this can be done in any field - from history to molecular genetics.

Based on the information you have shared here, I wold suggest he keeps his science options open and opts for PCMC in his 11th and 12th. He can focus on building his analytical skills by participating in high school research groups and learn ways to investigate data.

Hi Sir, My daughter is confused about which subject to choose after 10th. Need your expert advice here. Below are her traits and career aspiration: # First choice of her career is to appear in UPSC and be a IAS/IPS. But, has a fear about not clearing it, than what? So, other option should be open. # She dont want to have a 9 to 5 Job. # She is good at Maths but she dont like to solve complex problems. # Confused with Bio/Commerce and humanities which one would be good for her ? # at last, she want to earn lots of money ?
Ans: It's great that your daughter has clear career aspirations, but it's important to remember that there are multiple paths to achieving them. Here are some points to consider:

UPSC is a highly competitive exam, and the success rate is relatively low. So, it's always good to have a backup plan. While pursuing her studies, your daughter can also prepare for other government exams, such as the state civil services or bank exams, as these can also offer good career prospects. But here, it will be a 9 to 5 job, as you said she doesn't want a 9-5 job.

Also If she doesn't want a 9 to 5 job, then she can consider careers in law, journalism, or entrepreneurship. These fields offer a lot of flexibility and the opportunity to work on her own terms.

If she is good at maths but doesn't like to solve complex problems, then she can consider commerce as an option. A career in finance or accounting can be a good fit for her.

Humanities can also be a good option for her if she is interested in subjects like history, geography, or political science. These fields can also help her in her UPSC preparations.

Lastly, while earning lots of money is a valid goal, it's important to also consider other factors like job satisfaction and work-life balance. Your daughter should choose a career that aligns with her interests and passions, rather than just focusing on the financial aspect.

Overall, encourage your daughter to explore different fields and subjects, and to keep an open mind about her career options. With hard work and dedication, she can achieve success in any field she chooses.

Hello Sir, Don't disclose my name, I am working in boarding school from last 2 year's, last year principal changed and he is giving lot of work (harassing staff ) so around 50% of staff left the school. he is not appointing new staff also. hardly 2-3 staff he has appointed. In my department 3 staff ware there now I am alone, he is not appointing any one, so I am alone handling all the classes. he has increased the work also. So I decided to leave the work and I got the work also. I have sent my resignation letter through mail. In my appointment letter they have mentioned “During the probation period your service may be terminated by ONE MONTH NOTICE on “either side or Salary in lieu of notice” and The relieving date in all circumstances will not be earlier than the last day of the academic year unless the school terminates. if you are working on any assignment when you tender your resignation such assignment must be completed to the satisfaction of the school before your services will be released. As allocation of subject teaching is a duty allocated for the academic year the reliving date will not be earlier than the last date of the academic year in which the resignation is tender. The school does not encourage mid term session dis continuation of services. School academic year will ends in April. At the time of appointment they have taken all my original certificates. But when I sent my resignation with one month notice period they replied as per your request, you will be relived after the completion of required formalities and work as per service rules. But, yet they are not mentioning what are the work to complete. After one month notice period immediately I have to join my new job. otherwise i will miss my opportunity. orally simply they are extending my date. At present they have extended 15 days after my last day of my notice period. kindly guide me how to solve the problem, get back my originals and join my new job smoothly. Regards
Ans: Please consult a lawyer
