    Dear Hafsa
    For any one in this world its very difficult to do what he/she doesn`t want to and to succeed in that thing is another challenge. Your situation is what every second child in the world faces. Kid wants to do something different and parents want something different.
    Here I can only suggest you to talk straight away with your parents about the things you want to do, Your dreams, your wishes, your abilities.
    Tell them that you will never let them down. You will do good in your chosen stream.
    And by the way Hafsa tell us what you want to become and we might be able to help you in a better manner.

    Its better to opt a career in which you are interested. try to convince your parents and say them about your interest.
    Always remember "Self Interest in any subject is worth tons of study".

    Hi Hafsa,
    The career that you wish to look forward depends entirely upon your area of interest and your skills.
    If you do not have an aptitude for architecture, then you must not pursue it.
    Your passion in a particular subject and your caliber for attaining the highest level of specialization, will eventually lead to a phenomenal career path.
    I would therefore suggest you to consider your skills and strengths to boost your career plans.
    Further to this, if would be helpful if you let me know the career you are looking for so that I can guide you better.

    No it is not right to do something that you don't have an apptitude for.
    These days admissions are going on in almost all the universities and all universities are offering a wide variety of courses.
    You can visit some of the campuses like Lovely, Amity, Chitkara etc and talk to their counsellors so that you can make out for which course you have the apptitude for your.
    Good luck.
