This year, career counseling holds more importance as none of the board exams were held and FYJC and college admission criteria too are expected to be different. Further, the pandemic has lead to a deferment of the entire academic schedule leading to confusion among students.

Due to the lack of final exam marks, students have to rely on internal assessment scores and aptitude tests this year to make a subject choice. Hence, many students are also taking the support of online career guidance or opting for online counseling programs from their schools.

Swati Salunkhe, Career Counsellor at Mumbai-based Growth Centre told News18.com that the Indian education system relies heavily on marks. However, due to cancellation of exams, there’s been a rise in counseling among students. While some teachers also consider this as a positive step and believe that final marks are not the only determining factor to choose subjects.
