This is because many students are not satisfied with the stream they choose and tend to change it; this happens in the absence of proper guidance about options available as per their interest and different education stream.Nowadays, many counsellors prefer psychometric tests to analyze the interests of students because generally, students are confused between their various interests but these psychometric tests help figure out students’ capabilities towards each of their interest.With career counselling, students would be able to know –· Their aptitude and interests· Strengths and weaknesses of a particular interest· Making a choice of the stream for education after class 10· Career options available in the market as per their academic choice· Career options available as per their interest· Some alternate career options if they decide to change their stream in future
Conclusion: Students, as well as their parents, should begin career planning right from class 10th because, after this level, only a particular stream could be followed and career options will be limited to their choice of the stream only. The stream choice also depends on career planning and interests of students.
