Career Guidance for Class X students
Class X is a crucial year where the student has to make a choice about what stream to choose in his or her Plus Two education. This is the first big career decision that a student has to make in his or her life. Very often both the students and the parents are confused, and further chaos is created by various opinions expressed by all sorts of people like family, friends and peer groups. PAGE offers a way out of this.
PAGE conducts a three-stage career counseling program for Class X students which helps them make a choice. This is mainly done on the school campuses although we do conduct sessions at our Banjara Hills center whenever necessary. These counseling sessions and aptitude tests are free of charge.
- Career Orientation: First, we conduct a 30 minute career orientation for the students wherein we discuss and define what a career is and how to take a career decision. This is followed by highlighting all the general career options for different streams like Mathematics, Biology, Commerce, etc. A handout is given to the students for them to take home and study at leisure.
- Aptitude test: A one hour General Aptitude test will be conducted which identifies the student’s strengths and weaknesses and tests the student in basic Class X subjects. It includes a section on Quantitative Aptitude and simple Logical Reasoning which are core subjects of any entrance exam. It also includes a creativity section which tests the child’s creative abilities in order to ascertain whether they may be cut out for fields such as Architecture, Design, Fashion Technology or Fine Arts. This is purely an academic exercise. It is not a psychometric test.
- Parent Counseling: Once the score card of the child has been prepared, we arrange a parent counseling session in collaboration with the school, to meet with the parents and discuss the student’s performance and abilities. At this point, the student also actively participates in letting us know what they are and are not interested in. Based on this input and the performance of the student in the aptitude test, we are able to determine the general direction the student should be going in for Plus Two.
