Top Courses After 12th Science PCM Group

Have you passed 12th standard? Have you had PCM (Physics, Chemistry & Mathematics) subjects in 12th? If yes, this article will be of help to you. Here, I’ve listed down some of the best courses after 12th Science PCM (Mathematics group) in India.

PCM courses after 12th

PCM stands for Physics, Chemistry & Mathematics. It is a commonly used term to describe mathematics group students.


12th standard is an important point in a student’s life. Usually it is at this point that an India student chooses a professional course for himself/herself. Also check – list of courses after 12th Science (with details like fees, colleges, eligibility etc).


The professional course that he/she chooses will determine his/her career path! So, if you want to build a rewarding career, you must choose your professional course carefully!


I usually suggest my readers to take an aptitude test before selecting a particular course. An aptitude test will help a student gauge his/her abilities, weaknesses and general aptitude. You may also check – scholarships after 12th.


An aptitude test’s outcome can be used to find a career (and thus professional course) ideal for you! I hope you understand the importance of this step. You may also check – list of courses after 12th arts & commerce.
