Swami Vivekananda says that education is not the chunk of advice that is put into your brain and runs anarchy there undigested all your life. Education according to him means a process by which a character is formed, strength of mind is increased, and an intellect is sharpened as a result of which one can stand on their own feet.
It is always advisable to go for career counseling after you complete your higher secondary education. It helps you in deciding your future path. Many students have a clear idea about their future plans. But, there exists a few who seek admission into a specific stream, simply because they are advised by their parents or because their friends are doing so.
Guys, you should be focused. You should plan your goal and work accordingly.
Education is beyond the confines of school. Here is a live example –
A boy from a middle-class family who was an all-rounder in sports, academics, and extracurricular activities was confused about which career to choose.
After career counseling, aptitude tests, and understanding his interests, he chose medicine as his career path.
He focused on his studies, worked very hard, featured on the merit list, and is now pursuing an MBBS from Armed Forces Medical College (AFMC) Pune.
