Frequently Asked Questions

Career Counselling - Parents

- How do I help my child to choose the right career option after school?

Identifying your child’s innate aptitude, personality, and interest of the child is the key. His/her comfort in particular subjects at grade 9 and 10 level and further at grade 11 & 12 level shall help us understand his/her aptitude.

Observing the child while being engaged in different activities will give us an insight about his/her personality. Activities which really interest him/her will show us his/her interest area. By aligning these three aspects, we can help him/her choose the right stream. You can also take help from an Expert Career Counsellor.

Get the child's assessment done at InQuad. We will assess the child to help him/her choose the right stream.

- What are the various streams available after class 10th?

In Indian education system, there are only 4 streams available after 10th. The child can choose to take Science A-Group (Physics, Chemistry, Mathematics), Science B-Group (Physics, Chemistry, Biology), Commerce Group (Accounts, Statistics, Economics, Business studies) or Arts/Humanities Group (History, Geography, Psychology, Political Science).

- My child is not good with mathematics. Will a lot of streams get closed for him if he leaves Math's after 10th?

Actually there are many streams which do not require hardcore mathematics. It’s mostly required if your child opts for sciences. Your son's inclination to maths and science in the early years may be an indication of a prodigy in the making, or not. However, you keep an open mind about his future. Plunging into a stream, could leave him an unhappy camper in years to come.

- My child wants to take a particular stream after 10th/12th because all his friends are going in that stream. What should I do?

This is not unusual. Children don’t have an idea and career counsellors at schools are often not equipped to show them all aspects. You need to meet an expert. Get the child's assessment done at InQuad. We will guide the child to choose the right stream.

- I want my child to join the family business. Which course is most suitable for him/her?

The course which he/she has the best interest in is the most suitable course. Pushing the child in a degree program matching your family business may not be the right thing to do. Rather give him/her a course of his/her interest which will make the child smart. Subsequently, he/she will be in a position to take your business forward.

The way the world is changing right now, any stream can give your child abilities that can help you improve your business.
