From a burst of acne on face, to heart breaks, to insane mood swings; teenagers’ problems are endless. To add to the woes, this is also the stage where you transition from middle to high school. Good news is that you can start making a fresh list of your crushes! But the bad news is that this transition brings a whole lot of changes in your school life. This is when you have to start getting serious about career goals and orient yourself towards building your academic resume.

Here is how you can prepare for a smooth transition:

Do not get overwhelmed by the sheer size of the syllabus or more number of students in class. Easier said than done, we know, but the trick really is to not get overwhelmed. Once the classes begin, you can ease your way into and eventually get used to the syllabus.

Choose your subjects wisely. Much of the high school is about choosing your stream or specific subjects, and taking the right decision at that point will definitely make your life and the transition, easier. Don’t go by what your friends are taking. They may or may not have realized their interests and career choices. So, doing your own research and then taking a decision will be the wisest thing to do.

This naturally brings us to the question of who or what is the best source of this information? Who can guide you the best?

There is no shame is asking for help especially from your school career counsellors, because they act as both educational and guidance counsellors. They can help you cope with the leap in academics as well as guide you with career prospects with the subjects you have chosen.

Alternatively you can also take the help of professional experts either outside school or websites that cater to your specific career guidance needs. Most of the school counsellors or even online counsellors have a Masters degree in high school counselling, so you can rest assured that you are in absolutely right hands.

So, don’t hesitate to take all the help you need if you want to ensure a smooth sail from your middle to high school territories.
