There are thousands of students in the country who are bright enough to achieve more than 90% marks in the 10th and 12 but are still unable to decide what career can be suitable for Malvika. The reason behind this is limited information and lack of awareness. In most of the cases, students are aware of only a few courses and the information that they receive is from their teachers and parents only. This creates a gap of information which could have been filled with the help of expert guidance. This lack of awareness leads many bright students of the country to the careers which are not suitable for them and these students, even after being good at studies until school level, fail to make a mark in future. The reason is simple, had they been guided to take up a course according to their skills, they could have performed much better and might have contributed to the field through their acumen.
