Students generally are in a dilemma concerning the co-relations between subjects and careers. Many students believe that what they’re studying doesn’t necessarily have something to do with the career that they have picked. We want to help students realize that this is in fact, not the case. The session would be for about an hour and conducted for students of class 9 & 10. During this session, students would understand what streams they can consider selecting after they complete their class 10. This session would also give them an insight into the kind of subject combination required and the careers that they can consider pursuing the chosen subjects in class 11 & 12.
