Hello Rohit,
It is always believed that success is natural to those who listen to their heart and put in efforts 
with their soul and hard work forward. One doesn’t have to run after success but their ultimate 
goal of a career in the profession that is right for them. But the question is which career is right 
for me? And more than the student, this question is stressful for the parents. Being the life guide 
of the children, parents have a major responsibility in helping their kids choose the right line of 
business in life.   
The major question of choosing a career direction comes during the high school years when 
students have to make their first decision about the streams. Mostly based on their streams and 
the high school final results, they end up with a graduate program in college or university. 
However, this is the main stage that shapes and becomes as the stepping stone to an 
individual’s career. Therefore, a right career advice and guidance is the need of the hour here.  
Therefore, parents insist the school take the initiated and guide their kids in a better manner 
towards a successful tomorrow. They hope that the school will take equal part in the growth of 
their wards’ career and help them decide too. As a school has thousands of students, it gets 
difficult to talk to each one and give an apt and true analysis of their performance in all these 
years of education.  
For such complications and ease of process, the psychometric career test becomes a boon to 
both the school and the concerned parents. Why take the test? Following are some of the key 
features of the test that makes it an important constituent and deciding factor in a person’s 
career decision- 
1.Aptitude and ability test – A part of the psychometric test, the questions are designed to 
test the skills and knowledge of the individual in a certain manner that it reveals their 
strengths pertaining to a type or field of work they can excel in and prove to be 
successful. The test examines the test given at various levels pertaining to his abilities 
and thus comes to a conclusion about the same.  
2.Personality test – On the other front, the test also deals in the personal traits and 
behavior pattern of the test taker to evaluate his characteristics. This further helps to 
analysis the person’s emotional abilities. It also exposes the uniqueness of the individual 
which can be utilized to the optimum level in the career path
3.Accuracy- Given the fact that the psychometric test is based on certain calculations and 
deep research work, it can be relied upon when making a career choice. Many 
counseling agencies and experts recommend this test for the better analysis of an 
individual even at the recruitment level in multinational companies.  
 Given the above points, it should be easy to make a decision for not only the parents but the 
students too for their future endeavors. Having the results in hand, parents also get satisfied and 
acknowledge the career decision taken up by their kids. They motivate them in the right direction 
and give their full support for the same.  
Usually designed for about 20 to 40 minutes duration, the psychometric career test can be taken 
up online at various sites for free. They are standardized for all age types with general questions 
in the questionnaire. No extra knowledge or preparation is needed to take the test. It is very 
general and basic in nature to judge your ability in terms of your knowledge gained over the 
formal years of education and also personal behavior pattern. Parents’ insisting the school or 
school initiating and organizing the psychometric test is a step towards a better future for this 
generation at large.

Dear Aspirant,

It is observed many a times that the decision of which course to choose to pursue a career is in the hands of the parents.

Parents have a very important and key role to play in the career decision making of their child be it of any level.

Schools are now incorporating the psychometric assessment tools in their working to know the academic, growth problems in the students. Parents can insist schools to take the psychometric tests for students since they are scientific, unbiased tests which reveal the true personality, aptitude and interest level of the students.

Best wishes
