How to choose a subject after Secondary Education Examination (SEE) - Nepal? | Choose a topic of interest | Selection of schools and colleges according to ability

Secondary Education Examination

The Secondary Education Examination (SEE) is the final examination in the secondary school system of Nepal which is taken by the National Examination Board.

How to choose a subject after SEE?

The result of SEE has come. Now students are confused about which subject to study in class 11. Along with the students, the parents are also in a dilemma. What is the subject of your interest? How useful will this subject be in the future? They need to take counseling (counseling) on ​​this matter.

Expert advice can be taken for this. But if you want to pay attention to some things, the parents themselves can also counsel the career of their children. Psychologist and career consultant Dr. Narendra Singh Thagunna says.

Every person is born with certain abilities and qualities. From a young age, if you pay attention to how carefully a child does something, and how much he enjoys doing that work, his interest can be discovered.

In other countries, the school career counselor advises the student on what subject he is interested in, or what subject he can do well in, before going to the 9th, 11th, and university.

At the time of career counseling, you should first know about yourself. The family should also understand the child well. Thagunna says that four things should be given special attention. A child's aptitude, ability, interest, and inclination.

"If these four things are given importance and advice can be given on the subjects he studies and his future, the student's education will be better and his future will be better," says Thagunna, "then we have to think about alternatives." Thinking about options is how much capacity do I have, can the parents teach the subject that the child is interested in or not? It is about how much they can invest.

When a child is tested for aptitude, ability, and interest, it is found that he can do well in the medical field, but the family may not have the financial ability to send the subject. Thagunna says that care must be taken in this regard as well.

That's why you have to think about alternatives. If I can't study a doctor, then what else can be studied in the medical field other than a doctor? Can you study nursing, can you study lab technician? You should also know about what you can read," he says.

If one wants to study microbiology then that subject is very good. But after studying it, it is difficult to get a job in Nepal. Therefore, he suggests that we should pay attention to where the skills and knowledge we learn are used.

Many institutes have opened in Nepal saying that they do career counseling. If they have followed the psychological method of career counselling, then it is very good," says Thagunna. "It is wrong that only certain areas are given importance as career counselling. Therefore, with the advice of an expert or even the parents themselves can do the career counseling of the child.

The school also has to help the children in what to do after the school level is over. For that, the teacher can also help the parents to see what the child is like and what subject he can do well.

If you try to teach a subject of your choice without paying attention to the subject that the child is interested in, they may not get good results in that subject. Therefore, rather than imposing your will on teenagers, they should be allowed to choose the subject of their interest. Thagunna says that parents should focus on what is the best option for their children.

Up to class 10, students have studied certain courses. But class 11 has variety of syllabus and subjects. Students may get confused because they have to choose topics from different groups. They can say that I also read what my friends read.

Choose a topic of interest

If the wrong subject is chosen in class 11, it can harm children a lot. It may take them a long time to reach their destination or they may not reach their destination at all. If teenagers study a subject they are not interested in, they will not be happy in their future work. Thagunna says that it directly affects their lifestyle.

The age of the current class 11 students is 15-16 years. Therefore, to some extent, they are able to decide which subject to study. Therefore, parents should not ignore that a child is a child and cannot decide for himself. Thagunna says that they should also be heard.

Some teenagers may not know what my interests are. A career counselor can help such children to know their interests. This makes it easier for them to decide what to read. Career counseling is not something new. It is only to help to identify the good in the child.

Selection of schools and colleges according to ability

Another important aspect is which school or college to choose. Most schools and colleges in Nepal are the same. Thagunna says that it should not be said that it is good or that it is bad. But you should choose a school-college based on your ability and financial status of your parents.

Thagunna suggests that one should not fall under the illusion that a school that pays a lot of money will give good education. Since the curriculum is the same, the essence of the knowledge it imparts is the same.

Until a few years ago, it was a question of which subject to study on the basis of marks. But now with the implementation of the grading system, things have become easier," Thagunna says. "Rather than reading this grade, we should emphasize reading the subject of interest."

You don't have to go to the city to study

Many students come from villages to cities to study after SEE. This increases the financial burden of the parents. Thagunna says that if the subject you want to study is about your own home, you don't have to run to the city.

"If you are passionate about a subject, you can get good results even if you study it in your village, where you studied it does not have a big impact," he says. He says that instead of studying alone in the city with the stress of paying the rent and what to eat, sitting with the family in the village will focus more on studying.

Subject selection also based on preferred work

If a student can speak confidently in front of everyone, if he can explain himself to others, he has more leadership ability. Such students can do well in journalism or politics. They can do better in these matters.

But if they have an introverted nature that enjoys themselves, they can do well in finance, literature and other subjects. Students with this nature suggest that it is best to choose a similar subject.

He goes on to say that no subject or profession is inherently good or bad. The person who connects with the subject is good or bad based on his interest and ability. Therefore, you should be very careful about what to read. Subjects and schools should not be chosen based on other people's taxes or on impulse.
