Significance of Career Tests in Schools & Colleges for Career Planning

Significance of Career Tests every year from 8th grade to 12th grade in Career Planning

Going up the ladder of the school levels and nearing high school, students can get tensed about their career and end up messing it. This is why career tests are essential in assessing the potential and requisite skills of a student. In India, these career tests are a part of the pre-university or the pre-graduation course. Students in India are required to give an entrance examination prior to joining any college or university. In most leading universities the cut-offs for any program is high and might even go up to 98%. Therefore, it is vital for a student to know his strengths and weaknesses before taking any course as a long term career option.

Engineering, medical, law, commerce, psychology, literature are some of the major career options available in India. Each field requires certain background knowledge so as to assist the student in better learning of the subject. Therefore, career tests are important during the period from 8th grade to 12th grade. Basically, this is that stage in a student’s life which lays the foundation of the entire career. For instance, a student who is good at mathematics and science would later go on to choose an engineering program as a career choice while someone having good command in the field of literature would prefer arts.

General aptitude is also critical in assessing a student’s overall performance. Aptitude tests not only enhance the students IQ level but also helps in improving the problem solving ability. In addition, these tests give a student the confidence to take any tests post 12th grade.

EduGroomers firmly believes that there is no reason why Science should be a preference over Commerce or Arts. Each field of study, be it in Arts, Science or Commerce, requires students to perform well and get outstanding marks in 12th to be able to secure admissions. We encourage students and parents to not be stigmatized by the old concept that Science is the only field that is best for students. There are several new careers paths that have come up in the past few years which have become popular as well as provides good remuneration to the individuals.

By undergoing the tests in 8th through 12th, parents can be assured that their child is being monitored for continuous developments and any changes are quickly reported back to them. It also allows students to voice their opinions and choose a career that is satisfying to them.
