Normally, students are not aware that the stream they choose after their 10th standard is the first step towards shaping their future, making it a critical and a crucial one. Often this choice is made immaturely, where the students choose a specific stream because their parents want them to do so or because they don’t want to leave their friend circle, etc. resulting in the students hating their subjects or having to drop out midway. They do not actually spend the time to think about how this choice should be pondered over and decided wisely after analyzing oneself and researching about the right stream that would be well suited for the student.

Hence, here are few tips that will nurture the student in a way to make the right choice.

  1. Self-awareness:

The student should be well aware of their interests, strengths and weaknesses this involves analyzing and understanding their skills as well which will be the first step in helping them choose the right stream. An example to understand this scenario is given below:

  • Do I really like Math? (Identifying the interest)
  • Am I good at Math? (Judging the skills)
  • Can I be good in Math if I get all coaching and guidance? (Understanding the aptitude, i.e the ability to reach the required skill)

When an analysis is done, it will help the student to have a clear idea about oneself and will help in making the right choice.

  1. Discussion with parents/ teachers/ seniors:

When an important decision is required it is always preferred that a discussion is to be made with the seniors and experts. The same should be followed by students’ which will help in clearing their unsolved doubts and gain more knowledge. Having a healthy discussion with parents is also necessary which will help the student to analyze more efficiently on how their passion can be followed and not having to forcefully choose their parent’s decision.

One can be successful in any career if one puts all their interest and effort to be the best as there are lots of opportunities. Hence, choose wisely and stay focused.

Parent’s role:

Parents have a crucial role in shaping their child’s future. They should be motivating and positive, helping their child to explore the right stream based on the child’s passion and interest.

Guwahati, Assam, September 8, 2017: The Assam government on Thursday signed a MoU with Google India to take Internet connectivity to the remotest part of the north-eastern state.

Chief Minister Sarbananda Sonowal said the government would work to provide Internet connections to 26,000 villages and 1,500 tea garden areas in Assam under the MoU and thus increase digital literacy.

Information Technology Secretary Nitin Khare and Google India Country Head (Policy) Chetan Krishnaswami signed the Memorandum of Understanding in the presence of Sonowal.

“Technology rules the roost in the 21st century and the state government has upped the ante to use technology to carry forward the fruits of development to the remotest parts of Assam,” the Chief Minister said.

He said the ties with Google was a way forward to strongly pitch Guwahati as a natural gateway to the South-East Asian countries.

Sonowal said his government in sync with the Centre was working for the success of Startup initiative but the success of such programmes sans technology would be a distant dream.

“The MoU will be used as a launchpad to achieve the state government’s vision of women empowerment, skill development, and universal education,” he said.

The Chief Minister asked the Information Technology Department to take steps to make technology acceptable and favourable among the rural populace so as to catalyse rural development. (IANS)
