What to do after 12th board exams , Confused ??

As soon as the students enter into 8th standards parents starts thinking about the course, their child should pursue in his/her career. Traditionally there are 3 streams Science, Arts and Commerce. It is felt that generally, Science stream students should pursue Engineering or Medical Courses, Commerce students to join Chartered Accountancy, Cost Accountancy or Company Secretary Services and Arts students to prepare for Civil Services. Just after passing the 10th exam students as well as their parents gets more worried about the stream to be chosen for Higher Secondary classes. A large number of students start taking coaching’s in from 11th standards for Engineering & Medical. Since now Indian Education has fallen trap of education businessmen so they waste lot of money in name of big coaching institutes. After wasting 2-3 years of precious young age then they choose a suitable option for their career. During this process they sometimes stuck and develop health issues demotivation, anxiety and depression too.

Businessmen in Education Sector are now taking admissions since primary level due to super profitability. Such students carry the aspiration of their parents in childhood. Whenever they stuck in googly of examiners, they fail to handle the pressure. Sometimes children are really not interested to pursue the Engineering and Medical studies but they carry it under influence of parents. In this reference I would like to say that parents should decide keeping in view the real interest of their children’s. There are multiple courses and options of career. In reality life is simple we make it complicated by our unrealistic aspirations.

Therefore, don’t get discouraged if you did not get admission to colleges or courses of your choice. I have seen IITians working in companies whose owners never went to any Engineering College. Enterprising is still not taught probably in any school.

Trust on God and follow the following practices religiously. God has planned something better for you. There are 3 steps of success in the learning process i.e. worship, service and gentle inquiry. Worship uplifts the teachers mind up to divine conscious level and he gets charged for inspired teaching. Serving connects student and teacher at a physical level where learner serves and deserves.  Gentle inquiry connects students and teacher at an intellectual level and prepares them for the effective transmission of ideas.

By the above process, you will be able to connect teacher by Shakti, Bhakti and Yukti. When all above gets aligned then success is yours. Wish you a grand success in your career.
