What is your plan after higher secondary Class12? This is a question that vexes the minds of students and parents alike. Those who opted for Science for Plus-2 can attempt different entrance tests leading to admissions to various professional streams.

For students desiring to study medical or dental courses, MBBS or BDS, in any of the many government or private colleges in India, there is the common entrance exam called the National Eligibility-Cum-Entrance Test (NEET) held by the National Testing Agency (NTA).

Those seeking entry to the best engineering colleges, including IIT, can appear for the IIT-JEE, while those seeking entry into the Bachelor of Architecture (B.Arch) programme have to pass the National Aptitude Test in Architecture (NATA) held by the Council of Architecture.

Thus, various entrance exams are being held for admission to various professional courses. In such competitive exams, which see the participation of students in lakhs, Kerala's representation is very less. Why is it that our children are unable to select a good professional course? The reason is the general ignorance about opportunities and the lack of proper and disciplined training.

A learning workshop to help you understand the best courses and best colleges available through entrance tests and the job opportunities made available through them, the Malayala Manorama Quick Kerala 2023 will be held from 10 am to 1 pm on January 29, 2023, at Aban Arcade, Pathanamthitta.

All career-related queries from students will be answered in the seminar to be led by Aji George, career counselor, and Dr John Jacob Mundukottackal, counseling psychologist.
