If you think you have an eye for arts and architecture then go.. Architecture is not solely for having the ability to draw. You have to be creative in masses not just blocks. I'm an Architecture graduate, and I say its fun to study architecture. You become aware of history and culture. You'll understand why layout is planned. And you'll understand how such structure stand. Its a combination of science and art. What I also like in this career, once you become licensed Architect you can be part of the history. Since the building you design stand a long long long time...

i dont know about the Indian school system, but as far i know, i think Chemical Engineering is more tecnical that Architecture. In Architecture you have to think about a project (house, office) and drawing it, and the Chemical Engineering you have to discover new substances or fabric new ones to a lot of things. My guess is, go to the course that you think you are more capable, not the one who give more points or something like that, because when you reach to the job market in the real society, the type of your course and your skills are more important than the points you have taking during the course. good luck to you, aromalram !
