Dear Aspirant,

It is always better to be scientifically informed which course would suit the best for your son.

Choosing a course should entirely depend on likings, interests, ability and passion.

To be best sure of what suits your son for his career, I would suggest him to undergo an online psychometric test from CareerGuide which will help him understand himself in respect of his strengths, weaknesses, emotional quotient, etc. and will exactly tell him which career is ideal for him.
You can then call counsellors to discuss.

Best wishes!
