"MBA in advertising and marketing management or MA in advertising and marketing management? Which colleges and universities offer these courses and what is the eligibility and criteria?" - Srishti Jain
That totally depends on what your career aspirations are, although, both courses will overlap each other to some extent. If you are more inclined towards the business aspect, then go for MBA. If you are more creative, then go for MA.
From a career point of view, in either case, you will be doing a little bit of both. To get complete clarity on what MBA in Advertising & Marketing Management as well as MA in Advertising & Marketing Management entail, click here.
" What are the future prospects of a BA (Hons) degree in either history or political science? I had political science as my 5th subject in class 12th and scored 98 marks." - Mihir Mishra
Don’t go for a subject just because you scored well in your boards. True, it will get you through to a good college, but in the long run, if you don’t have any interest in the subject, you will not be able to fare well in it. Consequently, your career prospects will suffer.
Alternatively, you should assess your interest and skills set in a particular field and then pursue courses related to that field. Or for your UG programme, pursue BA (Hons) in either history and political science and then for your PG degree, you can branch out to a specialisation of your choice.
A few common options include: Teaching, research, UPSC, MBA etc. With BA (Hons) in history, you can pursue a career in Journalism & Mass Communication, become a Museum Curator, Art Restorer, Library & Information Scientist etc.
With a degree in political science (Hons), you can explore a career as public affairs research scientist, budget analyst, political scientist or an international relations officer etc.
"I’ve completed my Class 12 in Arts stream. Along with BA, can I also enrol in ITI (Industrial Training Institution)? I’m interested in joining the Indian Railways for which I need to enrol in ITI. " - Rishabh Gupta
ITI is not mandatory to join the Indian Railways. It depends from post to post. Since you are from BA background, you will have to assess which post you want to apply for and what its requirements are.
There are two types of ITI courses: Engineering courses & non-engineering courses. With BA, you should opt for the latter one. Non-engineering courses focus on soft skills, languages, and other sector-specific skills and knowledge etc. Some of them include: Insurance Agent, Library and Information Science, Painter (Domestic & Industrial), Spa Therapy, Dairying, Carpenter, Catering and Hospitality Assistant, Counselling Skills etc.
"I am currently in Class 10th, and I wish to become an astronomer. I scored 92 percent as an overall grade last year, added with 96 percent in physics. I am looking for some suggestions on the subjects, degrees, institutes, etc I should take or aim for." - Mohammad Shahid Akhtar
To become an astronomer, you will need a PhD in the field of astronomy, which usually takes about 5-7 years to complete. This program includes subjects/courses in astrophysics, stellar and planetary physics, galaxies, cosmology, interstellar medium and optics. Mathematics and computer science are also emphasised.
Once you complete your Class 12 (PCM), you need to focus on a bachelor's degree in physics or engineering with physics, life-science and mathematics. You can specialise in astronomy at the master's level.
Some of the reputed colleges include:
- Tata Institute of Fundamental Research (TIFR), Mumbai
- Inter-University Center for Astronomy and Astrophysics (IUCAA), Pune
- Raman Research Institute (RRI), Bengaluru
- Indian Institute of Astrophysics (IIA), Bengaluru
- Indian Institute of Science (IISc), Bengaluru

"I don’t know from where to pursue BTech as I haven’t appeared for JEE Mains or any other engineering entrance exam. Now I am unable to decide what I should do? " - Nishant
However, most of these colleges will expect you to have some or the other engineering entrance exam scores. If you have not appeared for any entrance exam, then your chances seem bleak. However, there will be some BTech colleges that may offer you admission after a heavy donation, but that’s a route that you may want to avoid.
"I have finished Class 12. I want to do a post graduation in economics, from IIT Roorkee or Indira Gandhi Institute of Development Research (IGIDR), Kolkata. Under the eligibility criteria they have given maths as one of the core subjects at UG Level. I don’t know which one to choose in my UG BA in Economics or BA in Business Economics." - Sushma
Opt for BA (Hons) in Economics in that case.
