CAREER SELECTION FOR STUDENTS
We know that first our destination then the way to achieve or reach it and then we start our journey. In the same way, we should select our career with our keen observation and complete guidance and information about it. It should be related to our interests as well. This the most trending issue of our students that at the time of selection of study course after completing their matriculation. They are supposed to get an idea from their parents and even elder brothers or sisters and cousins. Students are forced to move the medical degree or profession because their parents dream see them as doctors or they believe that only doctors are successful in the world mentally and financially too. They don’t even bother to think about the interests and skills of their child.
The child is forcefully admitted to doing intermediate with biology if he has interest in it or not. He is forced to become the doctor only because of his parents. From the day a child is born in a family, he is supposed to be a doctor and most of the people start calling them DOCTOR too.
The child remains quiet during all this time to make his parents happy and merely wants to fulfil their dreams too. Rather than sharpening his inner talents and skills. He works as hard as he could to achieve high grades and he definitely gets good grades in his intermediate examination.
Now the child is forcefully sent to other academies for preparation of MDCAT. The child has to pass the test in any condition because this is the first step to get into a medical college. There will be one who will understand the condition of the student during this time. None will care if he goes into depression or attempts suicide. It’s the test in which thousands of the students fail to prove their abilities and intellect. It’s basically an aptitude test in which even board toppers also fail. This failure breaks the hearts of the students because are limited in colleges and the number of students is really remarkable.
The actual reason is that most of the students face a lot of problems during this time of three months.
I personally believe that a test of 150 minutes can’t decide the future of the students that they are going to be doctors or not. But there is no perfect substitute for this test yet.
When a student fails in the test then he is considered to be a dull one and his abilities are also questioned. Is it the right way to make him realize that he doesn’t deserve to be a doctor?
He is again forced to repeat MDCAT and try again. In the same way, one or two years of the student are wasted for this quest.
