Tips for HSC Completed Students

In this section, I will share a few tips, and these tips will come in handy in the near future.

  • Participate in different social and cultural work. If possible, collect a certificate of participation. Try to share your experience in English and Bengali magazines regarding involvement in these programs. To get a stipend in a developed country, these experiences will assist you.
  • If you want to study abroad, make a plan for that. How will you complete your IELTS, what is your expected score, which country you would like to ask for a scholarship, all these questions are part of this plan. If you don’t have a proper plan, you will not be able to obtain a good result in IELTS.
  • Keep yourself busy in both indoor and outdoor games like cricket, football, chess, badminton, carom, cycling, and many more. Thus you will remain fit and healthy.

Final Words

Parents in our country always think their kids will become either doctors or engineers. But that should not be the only option.

All the courses, as mentioned earlier, are good career options for students after passing the HSC exam in Bangladesh nowadays. Without any hesitation, a student can choose any of the options.

If the student doesn’t want to take any of the courses as his/her career, there is also no problem. Because many part-time jobs are available in the market and with the help of these part-time jobs, a student can bear his/her tuition fees too.

Remember, if you have the will, nothing can stop you from being successful in any sector.
