 Generation Y is the most unique and rebellious generation ever. While the traditional society has adjusted with the ever increasing importance of logics, there are many in Gen Y who refuse to conform to these traditions. Those born in 90s and later have a more creative bend of mind. It is because of this reason that the number of people opting for doctoring and engineering as a career, are reducing.

Children are now exposed to diverse career options. From fashion designing to hotel management - the list of opportunities is endless. People now prefer alternate career or thrilling jobs. These offbeat career options give great satisfaction, flexibility and peace of mind to an individual. These options are convenient as most of them do not require higher level studies. 10+2, in most cases, is the most preferred qualification which is expected from students.
