What after 10th ???
It is a turning point in the life of a person, where he now has the option of moving a step ahead towards his dream career. Career should be planned a step ahead before 10th standard.

When a student of 10th standard is exposed to the huge bunch of career paths which will lead to pool of careers, it’s natural to get convinced. Career mostly selected, on the basis of trend / scope. Hence, in future, the slow aversion from the subject /career and dissatisfaction takes place. A career is your trademark. They say if you love what you do, you never have to work a day in your life. But many of us are not so lucky to be working in the jobs we are happy or is our passion. It is caused of lack of knowledge about self and the career opportunities around.
