still I am confuse what to do ? I am mathematics stud and dont want to become engineer

Yashu Shrivastava 5th Dec, 2019

Hello Manvi

First of all i want to say that you're lucky that you choose PCM. But that doesn't mean you can only go for Engineering.There are many other courses you can opt for.Like you can do Management Related Course(such as BBA),Social Science Related Course (Such as BA),Law Related Course(Such as BAL.LB/BCOM L.LB) and many more courses you can go for. Also being a maths student you have little preference that almost in every Entrance Exam there's maths section which you can do better than non-maths student.

Take your time,find more about these courses and go in that field in which you are interested.

I Hope This Helps

Best Of Luck!
