    What sort of job do you eventually want to have in chemistry?

    Would it be okay with your parents if you changed to chemistry? Chemistry sounds like a good field of study, it should be as good as btech mechanical or EEE, shouldn't it, in terms of getting a job?

      and my parents wont be okay at this moment to change to chemistry. I have to do mechanical or EEE.
