Before we move to the why part of the question, let us understand what career counselling means and what it does not. The meaning of career counselling for most of the parents I have met, is just selecting the stream when in SSC and in HSC, which faculty or where can they get admissions. In the whole conversation, not even for a single time, the parents bother about the characteristics of their child and which career would match their personality. Also, they do not think about the steps that need to be taken to make the career exploration ride smoother. The vacation period ( exam to result ) is mostly wasted or considered as a break, but never as a chance to prepare for the next session, at least one tool that can make a difference in their performance.

The factors to consider while coming to conclusion of the career choice are :-

  • Your Childs Personality
  • Career Values
  • Career Interest
  • Skills
  • Abilities
  • Learning styles

These are some minimum factors to consider while concluding. The end is not important. Moreover, the process of discovery of the above factors is very interesting, fun-filled and gives a new dimension to thinking of both parents and child. One of the parents during the Comprehensive career assessment said a very touching and interesting thing. Observing his answers to the situational questions, he said “ I wish I had undergone this process for my son when he was in 8th as I would have two more extra years for myself to know, what quality discussions I should have had with him. What type of conversations I should have had with him and what changes we as parents should have done in our always already way of being”. Because in a counselling process, the parents learn the most and once their views and opinions’ as aligned with what is important for the kid, rather than what I say and think is Important, then the shift happens.

So the process is more important i.e

  1. Being transparent with the counsellor why you want to undergo the counselling.
  2. What is the process that they are going to undergo and why?
  3. What are factors that are going to be considered in the assessment?
  4. What is the total time in the process from first meeting to counselling?
  5. What should their role as a parent be in the whole process?
  6. How do we prepare the child to take a well-informed decision?
  7. What are things they should do at home as a family after the assessment report is interpreted to them?
  8. How to use this report for future discussions?
  9. How to make a plan for skills and abilities to upgrade by this report.

The Process

  • The first meeting either telephonic or personally is primarily to understand the whole process and what is in it for me.
  • The assessment is important where the parents can be present as an observer to understand the views and process and as a support.
  • While the interpretation of assessment report, it's important to understand the factors that are being explained and how much of it matches our child and us.
  • By the career exploration process, the career analysis becomes easy to understand and with a clarity of what factors contributed to the options available.
  • The primary learning or take home is to work on the missing skills and abilities part so that we can prepare from now for future.
  • Last is what are the actions that need to be taken immediately by the child and us and how do we practice it till it becomes a habit.

1) They try to take advantage of every dollar they spend on their education. It could be anything including having excess food in a restaurant if the price is cheap.

Hi Abdul, there is no major difference as such. Just that in the honours degree, your course observes elaborations of topics in certain subjects, core subjects and placement opportunities are the same. For admission to the honours program, you compulsorily need maths as one of your best of four subjects. Choose anyone (prefer honours if you have maths), and in general both are the same in scope. I believe that personality, ability and interest attributes major role in choosing career. You are defined by your personality, your values, upbringing, experiences, friends, family all shape the person that you become. I conduct sessions by taking psychometric test which comprises of personality, ability and interest. Based on the report, I advise individuals to choose course, career and profession. All the best!

Well, many students struggles to qulify and/or to get high rank in GATE exam. Many people drop their dreams halfway due to negative thoughts or due to pressure.

But how to overcome our shortcommings?

How to prepare for GATE exam? is their any shortcut?

Many a times, we need to face interviews even after qulifying GATE exam for some specific admisiions like MS in IISc/IITs, PSUs , Ph.D. in IISc/IITs and many more. How to deal with them?

What makes us to fail?

Have look at following steps, it will make your way simple and clear with your destination.

1) Learn the syllbus properly: Many of us never see the syllbus properly, either we go to materials or books blindly or just follow lectures/ coaching classes. In any competitive exams no question is given outside the syllbus. When you open a text book or material you should able to say what is in syllbus or atleast you must identify what is not in the syllabus.

2) Analyse the syllabus:  What does it mean?

Example: In the syllabus it is given like;

Section 3: Electronic Devices Energy bands in intrinsic and extrinsic silicon; Carrier transport: diffusion current, drift current, mobility and resistivity; Generation and recombination of carriers; Poisson and continuity equations; P-N junction, Zener diode, BJT, MOS capacitor, MOSFET, LED, photo diode and solar cell; Integrated circuit fabrication process: oxidation, diffusion, ion implantation, photolithography and twin-tub CMOS process.

Energy bands in intrinsic and extrinsic silicon: You should know/refer old q.paers/ask seniors/your academic books etc. What all comes in this topic?

Say, Energy bands: How many times of energy bands? how they are created? importence of energy bands? can we move those energy bands? is there any mathematicel relation between energy bands? etc.

Now,intrinsic and extrinsic silicon: look here, the syllbus is only for SILICON materilas, so you can completely forget Germenium! What is interinsic ? what is intrinsic? what is the difference between them? what is the relation between them? how we produce intrinsic and extrinsic materils? etc 

Now you get an idea about the topic. now go with these questions, learn them properly and solve old question papers. If you could do without any issues you are done with that topics. If you are not, learn what you left and the topics you are not cleared.

Do this for the all the subjects. This is the process of learning so don't demoralise yourself if you could't solve some problems or identify some topis/ questions. Practice as much as you can. But try to complete syllbus to get good rank.

3) Note making: Here note making means just write the questions (while you did analysing) and mistakes you have done while solving problems and the formulae you regularly forgets and any importent questions/topics(min as min possible). Thats it. no more notes taking. While revising just ask questions yourself weather you can answer them or not. if couldnt answer, see what made you to forget and rectify it.

GATE is comprise of problems than theroy based questions. Thus focus on problem solving techniques than mear theory. These days we are getting more NAT(numerical anser type) questions more, so accurecy is importent. Focus on it. Practice is key to success.

4) Test series: Many students keep test series for last month preparation like dec/jan. Some students skip them. But I should say, prctice test series from the month you start your preparation.It shows your sterngth and weakness, and you will be having lot of time to rectify them.So dont neglect them.

5) Lastly: As the exam approach, students will be tensed and they could not do well under pressure. Especially from the month Dec-Feb. Your whole prepartion's fate is decided in these months. What ever your preparation may be, how good you are may be but these 2-3 months decide your fate. So dont be panic, dont be under pressure, dont be overconfident.

Just revise and practice, revise practice.
