  3. I have recently joined class 11 in commerce stream and I have no regrets in it.But my relatives are saying that if I had chosen science I could have got jobs easily as there are so many fields.One can do honours in physics or any of the science subjects and do the job in the teaching field.They say those who take humanities or commerce they stay unemployed. Is it so?
