Having done well in II PU or Class 12 exams, it is just the time for the young students to take a right step ahead to choose next course that suit one’s aptitude and interest which could take you closer to your dream career. The dilemma over choosing a course is obvious given the fact that there are hundreds of course-options outside the bandwidth of professional courses like engineering and medicine.
The Hindu EducationPlus career counselling session-2014, an off-page extension of the weekly supplement The Hindu EducationPlus, has taken up the responsibility to play a catalytic role to take the students out of their predicament and lend them a helping hand to take a right decision in choosing a course that suits them best.
