After you have completed SEE, you have to take the most important decisions of your life. You will meet a lot of people who will give you a lot of different ideas. Listen to all of them but choose your way.

Your happiness is the most important in your life. In life, you may have met people whose passion was to become a model, but they came up joining art classes. You may have seen people who love singing but are stressed now in medical classes. The main thing that you should concentrate on is your passion. Choosing a subject completely different from your passion is like loving Ronaldo and marrying Messi. You will find plenty of subjects to study after your SEE result, but you should go with that one subject that meets your passion and, of course, the size of your pocket.
The world is coming up with new subjects and vast courses every day. There is no end of subjects that you can choose.
‘Chora bigre commerce, chori bigre nurse’ was a famous slogan in our country in ancient times. In the present context of Nepal, this slogan doesn’t work out. Nowadays, nurses and commerce subjects are both given very positive responses. The SEE examination is regarded as the first step to building a career. As we pass much awaited so-called Iron Gate, students enter the curriculum with multiple of choices.
Every year, as the month of Ashad drops off, SEE results become the hottest topic in every gossip and tea talk.
What after SEE? This is probably the biggest question that grips those students about to cross this Iron Gate. While some of you might have already planned your carrier very carefully, many of them likely haven’t planned about it.
Carrier planning is a crucial part of student life. Society portrays a dreamy atmosphere after you are done with your SEE examination. Generally, students are in their mid-teens, i.e., of age 15, 16 or 17. They aren’t mature in themselves. Before the results are out, further Knowledge Bridge courses are also opened. Students have almost 3 months’ leave after SEE examinations.
Post SEE period is essential for SEE appeared students for a better future. Most students learn computer programming and do bridge courses. Some get very much serious about higher studies and start studying whole 3 month time. But we suggest you not be a bookworm; you may enjoy your time learning guitar, singing or dance classes, learning motorbike or also, if interested, you can directly join bridge course classes.
Plus two by National Examinations Board is always Nepalese students’ preferred option. Most students have chosen +2 for higher studies for the past few years. But here is something you should know before you wish to join + 2, a student must get at least a 1.6 GPA and at least a D grade in social studies to enter Plus 2.
NEB consists of mainly three streams; Science, Management, Commerce, and Humanities.
They need proper guidelines and counselling about choosing the desired faculty to carry on with their further studies. At current times, the wide-read subjects in Nepal are:
Science is one of the most popular subjects among Nepalese students today. About a decade back, the concept of people on Science was completely different. They used to think that it was a very tough subject and that people who study science are nearly psycho. But this trend has completely disappeared nowadays, and even a student who secured a B grade in the SEE exam is enrolling on this subject.
But the most important thing that you should keep in mind after joining science is that you must be able to work hard. Struggle, creativity and continuous improvement are most important to study science. In SEE, you studied physics which weight only 15 marks, but now you will study physics which weight 100 marks. That means you should give this subject six times more time and effort. Enrol in the science bridge course after the SEE exam.
The fees structure for studying science usually ranges from Rs. 60,000 to Rs. 2,00,000 depending upon the college. You can visit https://www.neb.gov.np for more details.
Science is the most favoured subject in the context of Nepal. Students who pass SEE with distinction marks are compelled to study science. As students can go to engineering and medical fields after reading science at plus 2 and also this subject as a very wide area, most of the students prefer reading Science. It is a course designed for students who are interested in technical things. You have to study compulsory subjects like English and Nepali. You can choose between subjects like biology, chemistry, physics and mathematics. Biology leads to a medical carrier, while mathematics leads to engineering.
Many aspire to choose science for higher studies, dreaming of becoming doctors, engineers, pure science scholars, etc. Each college has its criteria, but an A student needs to have a 2.00 GPA to study science, a C Plus in compulsory Science and Mathematics, and a D Plus in Nepali, English, and Social Studies.
I have seen many students choosing science because they got good results in SEE, and they must regret it later. So while selecting any faculty, choose something you want to and where you want to make a future. Don’t take decisions based on your results but on your interest.
A career led by the science stream includes either a medical career (such as a doctor, B. Sc. In Nursing, Microbiology, Pharmacology, Genetic engineering, and so on) or an engineering career (like Civil, Architect, Mechanical, Electronic, or Computer Engineering).
Management was previously known as commerce. Management courses help you develop more excellent knowledge of management like marketing strategies, accounting, financing, data analysis, marketing, personality build-up and other job-place-related knowledge etc. The study of management courses will prepare you for working as a manager, or corporate employee, owning a business, being an entrepreneur and expanding your knowledge about the business world. The management courses are not that vast as compared to science courses.
The fees structure for studying management usually ranges from Rs. 40,000 to Rs. 80,000 depending upon the college.You can visit https://www.neb.gov.np for more details.
Management courses are higher education courses that lead towards the development of students’ marketing, accounting and administrative skills. Business studies, accounting, trade etc, are some subjects under the Management faculty. This course’s main aim is to prepare students for office managers, business owners or corporate employees.
Management is the other choice of Nepali students after +2. If you want to make your future incorporate field, business sector, and management-related field, you should take management in + 2. There are many good management colleges in Nepal. One of the best things about choosing management is that many colleges offer management programs in the morning shift, so you are free the whole day. You can do some internships and build your professional skills at that time.
It is also not easy to get admission to a good college. Of course, all the colleges have their criteria, but you must secure a 1.6 GPA, with a D Plus grade in English, Mathematics Science, Nepali, and Social Studies.
Management and Commerce streams lead to careers like Accountant, Marketing Officer, Manager, Chartered Accountant, etc.
Humanities were previously known as Arts. Humanities contain a wide variety of courses like psychology, sociology, arts, economics, politics, history, anthropology, etc. It is a very cheap course compared to other available courses. And these are mainly theory-based courses.
The fees structure for studying this course usually ranges from Rs. 3,000 to Rs. 10,000 depending upon the college.
Humanity is the study of a variety of fields. Subjects like social science, arts, dance, economics, cultures, social development, politics etc., are read under this faculty. It is a mixture of several subjects, and nowadays, students choosing humanities are increasing rapidly.
Humanities is another plus two courses. It is for those who want to build their careers in art or social work. You need a minimum of 1.6 GPA with a D+ in English, Nepali, and Social Studies.
Likewise, students taking the humanities in the future can become journalists, Writers, Musicians, economists, or Social workers.
The other field is education. Students who wish to study education in +2 must have a minimum GPA of 1.6 with a D plus grade in social studies.
Higher secondary schools offer a two-year higher secondary education program, a formal program for primary school teachers. The Ministry of Education also organizes primary teacher training programs. TU offers a two-year Certificate in Education. The minimum requirement is a SEE qualification. The course can be expanded for a year or three toward a Bachelor’s degree.
Those who want to become teachers; can join this field after SEE. It is a two-year course that provides training and teaching skills to them. Some training programmes are also established by the government for their better talents.
Each of these subjects has its charm, and where these subjects lead is almost known by every student. Try to choose the field in which you are interested. Listen to your heart, not the heads that compel you to read the subject of their choices but be sure you’ve taken the correct decision.
Students also have the option of directly joining the law after their SEE. Previously law was available for bachelors only, but now in high school, you can start with the law. Only a few colleges, for now, offer law courses in +2. To study law, you need a minimum GPA of 1.6 with a D plus in English, Nepali, and Social Studies.
A-Level Course and IB Course
If you don’t want to study the conventional +2, then A level and IB are the right choices. You have a chance to get an international degree in Nepal.
However, getting enrolled in levels and IB is quite challenging. First, very few colleges offer a good quality international degree; secondly, the criteria are strict. Also, the international degree is relatively more expensive than a regular + 2. You need a 3.25 GPA in SEE to study for an international degree.
The A-Level is quite a new subject in the context of Nepal, but it has gained a lot of popularity within a short period. It is because it contains a wide variety of subjects and no subject is entirely compulsory, and you can choose one of your interest. On the other hand, you don’t need to go through boring course books, and the exciting part is that you are allowed to take formula books in the exam hall. The A-Level courses in Nepal are studied under the affiliation of Cambridge University. It is one of the highly demanded subjects in the global context.

A-Levels prepare the student for the international education system. It enhances the student’s knowledge broadening it and providing practical education. A level also offers a lot of options to students. Students can choose from 55 subjects. Also, students have the choice to attend the class regularly or not. Students learn their way without pressure and strict rules.
A-levels course is affiliated with Cambridge University, UK. It is an internationally renowned course known in about 160 countries. The A-level course may not be widely available as +2 but it has more credibility and is widely accepted worldwide as Cambridge University in the UK backs it up.
A-level also offers different faculties alike +2. The A-level course is more popular these days because the students don’t need to go through the courses that they don’t want to study; this implies that the students can be able to study interdisciplinary subjects like mathematics along with biology and even economics or take one subject from every faculty like chemistry from science, sociology from humanities and business studies from commerce.
International Baccalaureate (IB)
Similar to A level, IB is another international course for SEE students. IB is more strict compared to A levels. This course started in Nepal in 1968; until then, only a few schools like Ullens and Premier international school have offered this course.

IB is a non-profit educational foundation offering highly respected programs of international education that develop intellectual, personal, emotional, and social skills. It is a widely accepted Switzerland board-based high school diploma available in Nepal.

Under the affiliation of Tribhuwan university, two colleges are providing the courses.
