Science stream is a very popular choice among 10th passed students. When it comes to science stream, there are two groups available within it. Choosing a group is a task that causes dilemma. In this article, we will analyze subjects present in 11th and 12th Science stream. We will take a closer look at the groups and check out career prospects associated with both the groups. This will help 10th passed science stream aspirants take an informed choice!
Science stream subjects
When it comes to science stream, some of the important subjects present in the curriculum are-
- Computer Science
- Other optional subjects
Among Mathematics and Biology, students have to choose one subject. If you are interested in pursuing both the subjects, you may do so! You may also check – popular professional courses after 12th Science.
Note: Optional subjects may vary from one state/education board to another. The subjects mentioned above may vary from one state/education board to another.
Based on the subject you choose (from Mathematics and Biology), there are three groups-
- Mathematics Group (A Group- PCM Subjects)
- Biology Group (B Group- PCB Subjects)
- AB Group (PCMB Subjects)
No matter what group you select, subjects like Physics, Chemistry and English will still be present.

Science stream students are also eligible to pursue professional courses from other streams. For example, science stream students may go for relevant B.Com. course, B.A. course as well as Chartered Accountancy course!
Which group to select?
Answer depends on your aptitude, skills and interest. If you are interested in technical courses, Mathematics group will suit you. If you want to pursue a medical course, you must select biology stream. If you have not decided anything yet, you may pursue both subjects together and make a choice at a later stage.
