Some of the students quit the idea if pursuing Engineering if they can’t make though in IIT. In such cases also there are so many career options that hold the promise of great career prospect. As the student belongs from science background they can choose any field to study among Economics, Statistic and Mathematics.

Civil Service Examinations-
Civil services are again a good option for science students. For cracking these exams all you need is a thorough knowledge of current affairs and the History and Geography of the nation along with proficiency in your chosen subject of study. These exams can give you a very good career.
Being an entrepreneur today is the most challenging and rewarding experience.
