As soon as the students step into the 10th and 12th classes and their exams get over they end up in a pool of questionnaires from the society, relatives, family and friends which force them to enter into an endless wave of competition and everyone is in the rat race to become the next RK Narayanan, CV Raman or Dr. Subhash Chandra. Choosing what to study after 12th is a critical and career-defining decision. There are many students who either follow what their friends are doing or choose what their relatives and known tells them or paths that are popular and this last-minute planning may not be suitable for their aptitude or interest, resulting in lack of interest, leaving their studies in middle, degradation of their grades or even they end up going through a career which they are not meant for.
