CONFUSED AFTER 10th RESULTS- IT’S TIME FOR CAREER COUNSELLING!
10th Board Exam results play a major role in every student’s life. The experience has definitely been more nerve-wracking and unique for the batch of 2020. Due to the COVID crisis, several education boards like ICSE/ CBSE/ IB/ IGCSE/ SSC (state boards) had to adopt new strategies for the board exams- all ranging from cancelling some exams to testing students via alternative assignments. This had actually amped up the amount of chaos and pressure usually experienced by a 10th standard student. While usually students look forward to starting their session in certain streams of their choice around the month of July, the current batch struggled to wrap up their 10th Board exams itself. This along with the following factors make the 10th Board exams and the aftermath an unnecessary stressful process:
- Pressure to pursue a certain stream: The world may be full of choices, but often the media hype, peer pressure and herd mentality forces a student to take up an unfitting set of subjects in 10th. This not only makes the remaining school experience a demotivating experience, but also greatly limits the career possibilities.
- Ignorance about Career Options: It is not possible to know everything. But when making life-altering decisions, one must know what favourable options they have and how they would turn out. Thus, lack of awareness about suitable career options limits one’s reach and the resulting lack of clarity lowers the student’s motivation to push themselves.
- Lack of awareness about strengths: If one is ignorant about their own potential, talents and interests from a long-term perspective with respect to the future, they would end up working towards an unfulfilling life without concrete goals and targets. This should be avoided at any cost as it also decelerates the current academic performance.
A career counselling helps in resolving all the challenges in a real-time basis. A career counselling is a simple five step process to put a stop to all the confusion and problems faced by student who is specially short of time due to the ongoing situation:
Tests like US Patented DMIT and other Psychometric Career Tests are available online which taps into the whole profile of the student and performs a SWOT analysis. It also helps in identifying higher education courses, career paths and college options which provides the much needed clarity and vision.
How do students benefit?
Knowing the strengths and areas requiring development puts the students in a better and well-informed position. They are able to not only aspire to the right career but also achieve the saem via structured and effective interventions as suggested by the report and career counsellor. This also improves self-confidence and motivation to perform
How do parents benefit?
The parents also are an integral part of the process. They are the main supporters of the child’s bright future who work tirelessly to give their child a happy and successful life. With the detailed analysis, they are able to understand their child’s career and guide it accordingly. They also prepare to make these goals a reality and see an improved relationship with their child.
