JAIPUR: Gone are days when parents or teachers play a major role in deciding the stream of their ward after Class 10. Having access to different avenues of information, students are shaping their career after giving much thought on each and every aspect of streams.
Khushi Jain of Delhi Public School scored 10 CGPA comes from a Commercefamily background has chosen Science Bio. Her change of heart from Commerce to Bio shifted after she attended a seminar on career counselling last year.
“That session sparked an interest in Bio but I my final decision came after hours I spent on social media searching all aspects of this medical profession. I could realise that my interest in human body is out of my aptitude for medical. Hoping to become a renowned doctor,” said Jain.
Experts said that students have investing hours self on zeroing career courses. They say that very few students are sure about their career plans right after class X.Abhinav Agarwal of MSMSV is among those few students who were clear about streams. “I have no doubt since I was a child to become an engineer. Other than my interest in science, the other possible reason is that my father is from a medical background and my mother is from commerce background. I always feel family has no engineer so I will fill this vaccumm.”
Meghna Raj Saxena of Jayshree Periwal High School has opted for humanities because of her interest in Economics. “I have opted Arts-Maths as I wanted to pursue honours in Economics from Delhi University. While I am aware that Maths is necessary for this subject and also I have interest in this subject,” said Raj.
Experts say that improvisation in the humanities can pull more students in humanities. Some students have started giving more choices to students in humanities never before. Combinations like Sanskrit, Maths, Psychology, Pol Science or Sociology gives students wider choices in higher studies.
