After 12th which field is better? Homeopathic or vatenari.
Please give me answer.
You can go for Homeopathy or Veterinary.. Veterinary is better because of its employing ability- as the students are in few numbers,so a veterinarian can get a job more easily than a Homeopath.
But Homeopathy is far more interesting subject . You can also get jobs with this too-but chances are limited. If once your private practice be clicked, then you will be very satisfied cause of its huge return- economically, socially and mentally too.
Whatever you will do, must do with loving nature- only then you will be successful.
I would like to know ,if there will be less than the eligibility marks of 1 or 2 marks ,Is ,there any chances of getting admissions.
