After Boards???


So the boards are over, maybe under confusing circumstances but everyone is awaiting the results. Next, what to do?

If you are a 12th candidate then look around you, think about the future scopes, understand the industry requirements, understand your own aptitude before selecting any course.

Before proceeding further let us understand the present education in brief.

Education as we understand now is merely the process of memorizing of facts and figures.

Result:

  • Very good theoretical knowledge but not enough practical knowledge to become industry-ready.

  • A gap in the industry requirement and the skills developed.

  • Unemployment.

  • Dearth of skilled professionals.

Solutions:

Re-imagine education. Technology is continuously developing. New jobs are being created, old ones are becoming obsolete. New skills are needed for the new jobs. Each industry is upgrading itself along with the changing scenario. The professionals who can continuously learn new skills according to the changing requirement of the industry will survive. Thus, education is no longer a one-time process. It should be a continuous process. Problem Solving is the new mantra. Every student should consider their own aptitude, interests, and the skills required by the industry, before taking up any course. A perfect combination of all these three along with problem-solving skills and high EQ will be the key to success in any career.
