What is Career Counselling?
Career counseling is a science-based method to help students find their correct path of education for succeeding in life through their own self-analysis. Well guided research states that “the total development of a child can only take place in an environment conducive for teaching and learning”. After the JEE Mains exam, many students are baffled as to which subject can be beneficial for them. It is indeed a very crucial job as the career of a student depends on one life choice. It can be said that good guidance can shape a student’s future and make society a better place. The science behind Career Counseling includes a two-step examination of a candidate. The process of understanding an individual’s skill is done by a popular test known as the Brain Matrix Test.
Brain Matrix Test
A BMT or A Brain Matrix Test allows its user to understand the intelligence level of a person. For parents, it is quite important to understand the intelligence level of their children and BMT is the answer. BMT majorly has two components:
1. Dermatoglyphics Multiple Intelligence Test (DMIT)
2. Psychometric Test
These tests usually occur in 2 stages:
- The first stage includes a fingerprint scan of the candidate to analyze the genetic intelligence of the child.
- The second stage begins with the psychometric test of the child. The test includes questions asked about the daily activity of the child and the recording of the same for further analysis.
- After these steps, the data is gathered and analyzed to figure out the functionality of the left and right brain. These reveal the candidate’s strengths, personality, weakness, behavior, and ability to learn. These tests are internationally recognized as intelligence quotient tests and when analyzed thoroughly, it gives out the exact results.
