Everyone after 10+2 have to take a path for achieving a successful career.
I know it is not easy to make a right decision because you are very young and naïve. You have just completed your high school and you have no idea what lies ahead.
Moreover, there is an extra pressure from your family because they have their own plans.
Sometimes you feel sandwiched between what you want to do and your parents’ longing.
However, in the end you have to make a final decision. You have to choose a course that has great prospects, an undergraduate course that can give you a job.

After that you can join a diploma or a degree course according to your wish.
2. Diploma Courses
Diploma courses can also be taken after your 10+2. Many students go for Diploma courses after completion of 10+2.
They prefer diploma over a degree course because they are confident that will get a job.
Students who choose for diploma courses are not very ambitious because they usually look for a job that is not very technical.
Some students join diploma courses right after 10th/matriculation. But after completing their 3 years of diploma they do join a degree course.
