    No ,there are many other subjects in which you can score high as compared to engineering subjects.As you know that each branch of engineering covers around 60 different courses so you cannot cover whole subjects in a fix time schedule while on other hand there are some subjects on which you can have good command by self study.Some subjects are-

    History

    Geography

    Maths

    Physics

    Chemistry

    English

    Statics etc.

    Political sciences.

    Economics.

    You can take any subject as your optional as you have good command over the subject as the marks in the subject helps you to score good in the paper..

    So you can choose any subject.And if you feel that you know enough in the subject than there is no problem in choosing it...And if you feel it hrd then you can choose any other optional subject..
