    Setting an aim early is good as it will help in selecting the correct stream. You should select a reputed institute for this. Ideally aim for institutes like IIT, Vikram Sarabhai Space center etc. After the 12th standard, you can go for engineering or under graduation in Biological or physical science or mathematics. You need to secure good scores for applying for these institutes. There is entrance examinations carried out by NASA or ISRO or other institutions in this area. The astronauts are chosen based on different types of projects/mission related to space. This particular job is challenging and you can earn well. Therefore, you need to be focused on your studies now.

    Astronauts are selected on the basis of various kinds of mission/projects related to space. Most of the candidates are interested into the field due to its high profile and challenging job. As you finished your 10th standard you can go for plus-two. You should study PCM in your plus-two under a recognized board. After the successful completion of the higher secondary you can have number of options towards your dream. You either can go to engineering or to the three year graduation program in Biological or physical science or mathematics. After that you need to take the Entrance test conducted by NASA or ISRO or other institutions in the field. But to reach in these stages you need to have a good academic background. So study well and concentrate on the present level.

    If you want to become an Astronaut, then please complete your graduation first, Because to become an Astronaut, A candidate have done graduation from the recognized university.

    If you want to become a Pilot Astronaut, then you must have a Bachelor's degree from a recognized university in engineering, biological science, physical science or mathematics.

    And you must also clear the NASA physical entrance examinations -

    Height - between 64 and 76 inches

    Distant visual acuity - 20/50 or better uncorrected correctable to 20/20, each eye.

    Blood pressure - 140/90 measured in sitting position.


    So, if you really want to become an Astronaut, then please appear in the ISRO entrance exams and if you have clear this exams you will get admission in IIST and then you get a chance to become an Astronaut.

    Since, your ambition is to become astronaut so i would suggest you to take Maths,physics and chemistry (MPC) as your stream for intermediate.
    After +2 appear for various engineering entrance exam and after your engineering appear for entrance examinations carried out by NASA or ISRO
