Science Stream After 10th: Syllabus, Courses, Scope & Jobs

Science stream is a very popular choice among 10th standard passed students in India. Students who want to pursue pure and applied science professional courses in the future may choose this stream. In this article, you will be reading details about science stream schooling (11th and 12th) such as boards available in India, subjects to study, professional courses available after completing 12th, career paths and prospects.


When compared to other main streams- Commerce and Arts, Science stream is a bit tough. Academically bright students won’t have much difficulty in facing the subjects present in this stream though. Let us take a look at the important education boards available in India (11th and 12th Science stream). You may also check – best courses after 12th Science.


Science stream boards available in India

There are four main education boards available in India. Students may choose a stream that suits them best. The choice shall be made on the basis of difficulty level associated with the boards and aptitude of the student. The names of the boards are-

  • CBSE (Central Board of Secondary Education)
  • ICSE (Indian Certificate of Secondary Education)
  • IB (International Baccalaureate)
  • State Boards


IB is the toughest board among the above mentioned entries. It focuses on the concept of ‘how to learn’. Much emphasis is laid on ‘application of knowledge’ and ‘practical aspects’ of learning.


IB board is followed by ICSE board, when it comes to difficulty level. Then comes CBSE board. I think most of you are knowledgeable about this board. It functions under the Union Government of India. Difficulty level associated with this board is moderate. You may also check – List of courses after 10th in India.


Last comes State Boards. Each State in India has its own education board. It functions under the respective State Governments of each state. Language of instruction (medium) in case of schools affiliated to such boards are- regional language and English.


Science stream groups

When it comes to Science stream, there are two main groups within it. They are-

  • Biology Group (Physics, Chemistry and Biology as main subjects)
  • Mathematics Group (Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics subjects)


These groups, to an extent, ends up determining the career path of a student! A student may choose any one of the above mentioned groups or pursue both of them at the same time. The choice has to be made by the student.


The mathematics group is generally known as the A group and biology group is known as B group. Students pursuing both groups may identify themselves as AB group students.


Let us now focus on the important subjects present in science stream schooling.


List of important science stream subjects

  • Physics
  • Chemistry
  • Mathematics
  • Biology
  • English
  • Computer Science


Among the above mentioned subjects, Physics, Chemistry, English and Mathematics/Biology are compulsory subjects. Students have to choose an optional subject other than them. Usually, availability of such optional subjects may vary from one board to another and from one state board to another. Usually, the optional subjects are- computer science, Sanskrit, regional languages etc.

11th & 12th science stream academic program and evaluation

There are two academic years present- 11th and 12th standards. In case of some boards and state boards, the each academic year has been divided into two semesters, each semester lasting a period of 6 months. Main evaluation exams are held at the end of each academic year (at the end of each semester, in case of semester learning system).


List of courses after 12th Science

Professional courses available after 12th can roughly be classified into three types- applied science courses, pure science courses and other courses. Such courses are available in Diploma as well as Bachelor’s Degree formats.


Course selection is influenced by the group a student has had in 11th and 12th classes. Based on those groups, some of the well known professional courses available are-
