What to do after SEE? This is one of the common questions that arise in the mind of SEE graduates. SEE (Previously known as SLC is considered one of the Iron pillars in the education concern.
But with the modification in the education system in Nepal, the value of SEE have somehow degraded in context of government job requirement & all. Higher secondary education has been made compulsory for the entry of government jobs and so is the condition with private sectors as well.
SEE result 2075 has recently been published and let me first congratulate you for passing the first pillar of your study and welcome to the senior secondary level.
As far as “what after SEE is concerned”, it truly depends upon your passion & interest. You can go for further studies, opt for flying abroad, involve in some technical sectors, join a job, pursue your hobby or dream, execute your passion, sports, arts or anything you can imagine.
Follow your interest & Passion
But at this period of time, I would not recommend you to deviate from your studies because as I have mentioned earlier, +2 these days have become compulsory in our country. Moreover, you don’t usually get a good appreciation for your hobby or passion if you are not educated. There are some exceptions on this earth though. But generally speaking, if you want to do something in your life, you must go beyond your SEE certifications.
From this point of view, I neither underestimate your dream nor am I demotivating you from your passion by any means. All I want to say is “Higher education is must”. You may follow your passion along with studies. Whether it is sports, music, dance, poetry, computing, or anything of your interest, you can definitely commit them along with your studies.
