Taking major exams such as “O” levels and “A” levels can be a nerve-racking experience for both parents and students. Even after all the trouble of preparing for the exams for months and eventually taking it, students have to also face the anxiety of the day when their results are released. Many often have the lingering worry of the possibilities of where they can go to further pursue their studies.
Where can your child go?
In today’s context, the education landscape is a double-edged sword. While children now enjoy the benefit of being able to select from a variety of pathways to further their studies, it can become rather overwhelming when so many choices are handed to them. Not only are there multiple schools, there are also many disciplines to choose from.
Stuck on how to progress with your education? Here are some things your child can do when it comes to choosing the right education pathway — from getting to know about their interests to selecting their dream school.
Figuring out your Interests
Discovering what you enjoy most is one way to find out where you can further pursue your interests. Have a flair for presenting? Take up a Media and Communications course to hone your presentation skills. Love working with technology? There are Information Technology (IT) programmes you can take up. For some students, they prefer to pursue a career path based on what they are good at. Balancing the pros and cons of what options you have in mind is necessary and most importantly, you have to have a rough idea on what you want out of your education journey.
School of Choice
Knowing what your child wants to pursue in the future is one step. Another step that students should take note of is where to go to make their career aspirations come to life. With many schools to choose from, students should also factor in some important decision criteria that can help narrow down their search. Some questions to ask yourself about the school are – the course learning structure; school recognition; campus location, etc.
