Why Career Guidance after Grade 9th & 10th ?
There are so many choices that an individual has to make at this stage. The broad level career plan in your head will determine which stream and subjects you choose. For international boards, this choice is even more confusing, as you have a wider array of subjects to choose from. Of course, parents’ opinions play a major role in these choices, as does the influence of friends, and more recently the choice of schools students will want to apply to for their bachelors.
But the factor that should be most important while making these choices, sometimes gets lost amidst the plethora of other considerations. The choice of a stream, and related subjects should be based on a career path and an in-depth understanding of self, knowing your capabilities, and strengths and weaknesses. There’s no point in pursuing a popular career simply because others are doing it, or because it’s being suggested to you.
